2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

While it didn’t culminate in a Yates Cup title, things went about as expected for the Carleton Ravens last year. A solid regular season, a win in the first round of the playoffs, then a loss at the hands of the Western Mustangs. This year the Ravens are hoping to repeat the first two acts of that play, but re-writing the ending. Unfortunately for Head Coach Steve Sumarah, an unexpected plot twist occurred when quarterback Michael Arruda decided he didn’t want to play football any longer. This forces the Ravens to turn to Tanner DeJong, who has acted as Arruda’s understudy for the last couple of seasons and knows the system inside and out. He’ll battle Giordy Belfiore in camp to see who ends up as QB1 to start the season. The good news for whoever the starting quarterback is, he’ll be surrounded by a talented cast. Nathan Carter is back at running back. While not a big back, Carter rushed for 756 yards and five touchdowns last year and caught a couple of TD passes as well for good measure. Also in the mix at running back are Matthieu Pickens, Josh Ferguson, Western-transfer Malcolm Weeks, and freshman Shamond Carlisle. The receiving corps is equally impressive with the starters, but possesses even more depth. Quinton Soares, Toronto Argonaut draft pick Phil Iloki, and Chad Manchulenko lead the way with Keaton Bruggeling, Nick Renaud, and Phil’s younger brother Honoreal Iloki all expected to make contributions. The offensive line has experience at the tackle positions, with Jesse Lawson and Nolan McGreer returning. The interior, meanwhile, will be manned by younger players. Matt Goodall, Darius MacKay, and freshmen Angus O’Mara from Kingston and Patrick Lavoie from Montreal will be among those in the mix. Offensive Coordinator J.P. Asselin has some work to do in getting his starting quarterback comfortable, mostly because of a lack of game experience; not because the QBs don’t grasp the system. Just getting the ball in the hands of the numerous playmakers may be all that’s required of either DeJong or Belfiore. With all the talk about how great Waterloo’s offence was last year (and it was) the Ravens scored just eight fewer points, or a point per game less than the black and gold, and this year’s unkindness of Ravens could be even better. Flipping to the point preventers, OUA First-Team All-Star Tevin Bowen had three sacks and seven tackles for a loss last year and returns to anchor the defensive line. Shaiheem Charles-Brown adds speed off the edge, while Cedric Theriault can play either inside or on the end. Other players who will see playing time include Vincent Viau-Duval and freshman Ife Onyeka from Mississauga, a cousin of recently graduated Raven Kene Onyeka. The strongest unit on the Ravens is their linebacking corps, which is arguably the best in the conference. Jack Cassar is another First-Team OUA All-Star who had 62.5 tackles last season to rank second in the conference. Josh Walsh and Trevor Hoyte fill out the trio of starters, while OUA All-Rookie Team member Louis Cavanagh, Alex Laberge-Chung, and freshman Malik Yusef from Stittsville give the Ravens great depth to go with the front-line talent. The secondary is an interesting mixture of veterans and younger players. Second-Team OUA All-Star Jonathan Edouard will play one corner, while Cole Hepburn will be the safety. Sheldon Watson, a 6’2” transfer from Henderson State in Arkansas will play at halfback. Freshmen Melique Straker from Burlington and Louis Leveau from Montreal will also get an opportunity to play and maybe sooner rather than later. This is an interesting group of athletes with huge upside. If Defensive Coordinator Paul Eddy Saint-Vilien can bring this group together, it could once again be an outstanding unit. One question mark is how the Ravens will replace Michael Domagala as their kicker. That will be answered by how well Vincent Plouffe and/or Queen’s transfer Keirnan Flannery-Fleck perform. Another key point for the team is the need to clean up its discipline from a year ago, when they averaged 109 penalty yards per game – the highest in the conference. The offseason decision by Arruda will follow this team all season, unless the play of his replacement is sufficient. But even with the question marks at pivot, the Ravens have the potential to be really, really good this season and have to be considered one of the favourites to get to the Yates Cup.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

There never seems to be a dull moment when it comes to the Guelph Gryphons. On the field, the Gryphs made it all the way to the Yates Cup final after outlasting Waterloo and staging a furious comeback win over Ottawa to advance to the championship game, where they were bested by Western. Off the field the Gryphons made yet another coaching change, as Ryan Sheahan, son of long-time Queen’s coach Pat Sheahan, becomes the team’s third head coach in as many seasons. He joins the team after a successful run as the offensive coordinator at the University of Calgary. Theo Landers returns at quarterback, but will be pushed to reclaim the starting job. He averaged just 175 passing yards per game in 2018, but was able to run for 526 yards, the ninth-best total in the conference. With a new head coach, there are no allegiances, just open competitions. Landers will be pushed by Dante Djan, entering his fourth season in the program. The Gryphons were also happy about landing recruit Mason McGriskin from North Bay. Guelph has sensational depth at running back, led by Jean-Paul Cimankinda. He didn’t start until the last two games of the season, then posted 119 and 157-yard games. In the playoffs he ran for 256 yards against Waterloo, 119 against Ottawa, and 148 more against Western. His ceiling is exceptionally high. He’ll be backed up by Kwame Osei, Juwan Jeffrey, and Jeremie Kankolongo. Both Cimankinda and Jeffrey were named to the OUA’s All-Rookie team. The Gryphons relied primarily on a trio of receivers a year ago, and all return. Kade Belyk scored five TDs on 36 catches last year to lead the team in both categories, as well as yards with 425. Zeph Fraser and Kian Schaffer-Baker are also back for another season. Others expected to contribute this year include Abdraman Abdel-Rahim, Willy Pierre Dimbongi, Spencer Kennedy, and Zach Farray. There are three players have secured jobs heading into training camp. OUA All-Star Eric Starczala returns after a training camp with the CFL’s Toronto Argos. Also in the mix are Ben Petrie and Coulter Woodmansey. Top recruits on the o-line are Noah Wright from Scarborough and Matthew Famurewa of Markham. Offensive Coordinator Mark Surya has a lot to work with, especially in the running game, but he and Coach Sheahan will have to figure out whether Landers is again the man behind centre. The defensive line features fifth-year Gryphon Greg Corfield on the inside. He’ll be joined by Tavius Robinson, Afram Jolak, Jeremy Kapelanski, and Alain Cimankinda. Freshmen Kristian Stewart and Yusef Alkhaldi, both recruited from St. Thomas More in Hamilton, will add to the depth. Job Reinhart returns for a fifth season after being drafted by the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders. A.J. Allen and OUA All-Rookie Team member Uriel Kalinga are slated to start at the other two spots. Justin Lauzon, Scott Murray, and Charlie Doering will also see playing time. On the back end, Dotun Akatepe, who led the team with three interceptions last year, anchors a group that includes Jason Richards and OUA All-Rookie Team member Brendan Murphy, who was also named a Second-Team OUA All-Star. Among the players to watch for in this group is freshman Harrison Bagayogo from Montreal. Veteran Defensive Coordinator Dennis McPhee joins the team for a second stint, having been the linebackers coach when Mike O’Shea played there in the early 90s. His task will be to mesh a solid group of veterans with some talented youth. If he can work his magic, the Gryphons should be just fine on his side of the ball. The kicking jobs are up for grabs, with both Eric Stranz and Jared Fernadez-Brown competing for playing time. This is an interesting team heading into 2019. Coach Sheahan has many talented players at his disposal, with a potential All-Canadian at running back. The better the ground attack is, the more pressure it takes off the quarterback, whomever that may be. The Gryphons shocked just about everyone when they advanced to the Yates Cup final a year ago. They can’t be considered a favourite to return, but they have enough talent that winning a playoff game or two should not be considered a major surprise.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

There have been few bigger surprises in the OUA recently than that of the 2018 Laurier Golden Hawks. Almost to a person, the Hawks were predicted to finish second behind the Western Mustangs in the OUA, but a 4-4 season stunningly kept the purple and gold from making the playoffs. Consecutive mid-season losses to Waterloo, McMaster, and Guelph sealed the Hawks’ fate. Those three defeats were by a total of six points and a victory in any of those three heart-breaking games would have propelled the team into the postseason. There will be a battle in camp to see who will lead the 2019 version of the team. Tristan Arndt and Connor Carusello both saw considerable playing time last year and will compete to be the starting quarterback. Arndt is the more mobile of the pair and has tremendous leadership skills, while Carusello is more of a pocket passer with an exceptionally strong arm. Each player threw as many interceptions as he did touchdown passes last year. This is a competition worth keeping an eye on. Whoever survives the battle will have a talented receiving corps to work with, despite the loss of All-Canadian Kurleigh Gittens Jr. to the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. Second-Team OUA All-Star Brentyn Hall led the Hawks with six touchdown catches last year and had a 151-yard effort at Carleton. He will be joined by Ente Eguavoen and Brendan McCracken, who suffered a season-ending injury in week one last year. Nick Petermann also returns, while Julian Mitchell is a big-body receiver who could make an impact this year. The running game will again be led by Levondre Gordon, back for a fifth year, after posting over 800 rushing yards in 2018. He hit the 100-yard mark in four games, but behind the brooding back is some tremendous depth at the position. Kavantye Bailey and Kevin Wong are waiting in the wings and both should see some carries this year. Fullback Osayi Iginuan is a tremendous blocker. It’s an experienced offensive line that does things a bit differently. They don’t play the guards and tackles on the left or right side; they flip them depending on where the ball is placed. Isaiah Adams and Braydon Noll will play the boundary side, Drew Mairleitner and Bryce Bell will be on the field side, while J.D. Richardson is the centre. Michael Faulds does double duty as the Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator and he’ll have multiple weapons at his disposal. If one or both quarterbacks play to their potential, this team could be an offensive force, thanks in large part to its big-play ability. Despite a couple of high-profile graduations to the CFL, the Hawks are again stacked defensively, giving veteran Defensive Coordinator Ron VanMoerkirke plenty to work with. It would be somewhat surprising if the group doesn’t improve on its total of 14 sacks of a year ago. The defensive line will be strong despite the loss of Robbie Smith to the Argos. The line will be anchored by returning players Zach Houghron, First-Team OUA All-Star Trevaughan James, Sam Acheampong, and Alfred Green. Other players who will no doubt receive plenty of playing time include end Tyler Eckert and John O’Reilly, who can play either end or tackle. Brad Cowan is back at linebacker and will play the middle after missing all of last year with an injury. Tommy Bringi will play the weak side, while Shomari Hutchinson has returned to the program and will play the strong side. Jordan French and Mitch Rooney will also fit into the mix. It’s a veteran secondary despite the loss of Scott Hutter to the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos. Malcolm Thompson, Nico McCarthy, Christian HutterCoppin, and First-Team All-Canadian Will Amoah – who was second in the OUA with five interceptions – will anchor the back end. Daishane Johnson and Ayo Ajayi will also be among those expected to compete for playing time. Nathan Mesher returns to do the punting and place kicking. He averaged 39.3 yards per punt, while connecting on 18 of his 23 field-goal attempts, including a long of 47 yards. It was a long offseason at Laurier after the disappointment of a year ago. But heading into the 2019 season, Faulds has a talented group of athletes who have added incentive to make up for the lost season of 2018. Missing the playoffs again would be another shocker.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

The face of the McMaster program has changed, but it’s certainly a familiar one. Stefan Ptaszek has returned as head coach after leaving the program for jobs with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats and at UBC. He was with the Marauders program for a decade (2006-2015) before leaving for the Ticats, compiling a 73-29 record at Mac, while making three appearances in the Vanier Cup in four years, winning once. The competition between Andreas Dueck and Jackson White to be the starting quarterback is now over. White has left the program to attend Western, so after a strong spring camp, it’s now Dueck’s job. He took most of the snaps last season, completing 60-percent of his passes, while throwing for five touchdowns against eight interceptions, the latter of which tied for the highest total in the conference. His backup will be the strong-armed Liam Putt, back for a second year at McMaster after stops at Windsor and Laurier. Perhaps the deepest area on the Marauders is at running back. The unheralded Jordan Lyons returns as the starter. He rushed for 759 yards last season, including a 184-yard effort in the regular season finale against Windsor. He’s also dangerous catching the ball out of the backfield, as is Justice Allin, who battled an injury in 2018. Allin also may see time as a receiver in some formations this year. Blake Reason returns as the fullback. Ptaszek will like what he sees with his receiving corps. Tommy Nield emerged as a bona fide OUA star, punctuated by a 10-catch, 233-yard effort against the Varsity Blues. He’ll be joined by Tyson Middlemost, a talented receiver who was limited to just two games last season. Esaie Mboko will switch over to the offensive side of the ball this year after playing defensive back, while Xander Tachinski, Hayden Amis, Levi Paul, and Michael Bazzo are all veterans who will see playing time. Three fifths of the starting line was settled before training camp opened. Wyatt Edmonds will start at centre, Joe Bencze at left tackle, and Jakub Szott at one guard spot. Several players will compete for the two starting, and backup jobs, and among them will be highly-touted recruit Mike Martin from St. Catharines. There’s some work to do for Ptaszek and new Offensive Coordinator Corey Grant. The Marauders scored just 151 points last year, with only Toronto scoring fewer among OUA teams. The good news is that the QB controversy appears to be over and there is a depth of talent at the running back and receiver positions. If Dueck excels and the offensive line questions are answered positively, Mac could be dangerous. The defence may go as far as the d-line takes it. Enoch Penney-Laryea – who led the Marauders with five sacks last season – Mitch Lyons, and Ryan Leder are among the returning players who will make significant contributions. Donovan Glave follows Defensive Coordinator Scott Brady – back for a second season with Mac – from Mount Allison. Nate Edwards and Eric Blake are back to anchor the linebacking corps, with the former’s 40 tackles leading the team a year ago. Among the newcomers to watch is Zach Ihasz, a 6’2, 210 pound freshman from Ptaszek’s alma mater, Nelson High School in Burlington. If there is any similarity between this year’s group and the Vanier Cup team, aside from Ptaszek, it’s the defensive secondary. The championship back end was filled with veterans who stayed together for several seasons, which is what the current unit is all about. Ben Cross and Nolan Putt will man the corners, First-Team OUA All-Star Noah Hallett and Mitch Garland will start at halfback, and Lucas Bill will be the safety. It’s a talented, veteran group which will provide many a headache for opposing quarterbacks. The group features four fourth-year, and one fifth-year starter. Adam Preocanin returns to handle both the kicking and punting duties. Last season he connected on 18 of his 24 field goal attempts, highlighted by a 48-yarder. His average punt travelled 38.8 yards, but he regularly pinned opponents deep, with 14 punts out of bounds inside the 20-yard line, tied for most in the conference. While a change of the head coach usually signifies the beginning of a rebuilding process, that’s not the case here. Ptaszek has a talented group of returning players with which to work. If Dueck can take the next step and the offensive line keeps him on his feet, the Marauders may surprise some people this season.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

It must have been an incredibly long off-season in the nation’s capital. After finishing the season with a 6-2 record, good for second place in the OUA, the Gee-Gees hosted the Guelph Gryphons with a berth in the Yates Cup on the line. Leading 22-10 after three quarters, and 22-11 with 10 minutes left to play, Guelph scored two touchdowns and a field goal in the game’s final minutes, scoring 17 unanswered fourth-quarter points in a 27-22 heartbreaker for the garnet and grey. The way that game ended had to have been a major motivational force in the offseason, and this team has the talent to not only get back to a semifinal, but to finish the task this time. Sawyer Buettner is back for a second season at quarterback. While not spectacular, Buettner was efficient, throwing 14 TD passes against five interceptions. He also proved he’s capable of having a big day statistically, throwing for over 400 yards and four TDs in a 53-21 win over Toronto last year. Deseronto’s Ben Maracle will serve as Buettner’s back-up for a second straight year. First-Team OUA All-Star Carter Matheson leads a talented group of receivers. He had 40 catches for 664 yards and six TDs last season. Kalem Beaver also returns, as does Dylan St. Pierre, Tristin Park, Peace Tshilombo, and Nicholas Reyes. Daniel Oladejo was with the team last year, but saw no action. He’ll be given a chance to get some playing time in 2019, however. The Gee-Gees, meanwhile, are also excited about a couple of recruits from Quebec – Hugo Raymond and Maxim Malenfont. The explosive Dawson Odei will again start at running back. He missed the first two games last year, but averaged 115 rushing yards per game over the last six, then totalled 142 yards in the playoff tilt against Guelph. There’s good depth behind him with Donald Shaw, Jordan Burgher, and Amlicar Polk in the wings. The offensive line is a veteran group, with Second-Team OUA All-Star Zachary Pelehos and Thomas Rowlands at tackles. Others in the mix include Tanner Bishop, Jeremy Vallee, and Brett Jellee. Keep an eye on freshmen Julian Iamundo and Ian Wells. This could develop into a solid unit. Head Coach Jamie Barresi runs the offence and should like what he sees. His group is good enough that it doesn’t have to force Buettner to win games on his own; he just has to find a way to get the ball to the playmakers in the lineup, and there are several of those to choose from. As good as the offence is, the defence may be even better. Defensive Coordinator Jean-Vincent Posy-Audette lost U SPORTS interception leader Jamie Harry to graduation, but there’s a solid crop of returning players. Tramayne Stehen played in the East-West Bowl and will be joined by veterans Francis Perron, Reshaan Davis, and Mike Pezzuto. The D-line is deep, with players like Adam Wallace, Tyler McCarthy, and OUA All-Rookie Team member Jaden Lattamore ready to play bigger roles. The GeeGees are also high on CEGEP recruits Gabriel Aupin and Kevin Anderson. The linebacking corps may be the strength of the defence. Abed Hamidi is back in the middle, flanked by tackling machine Kyle Rodger on the weak side and Thomas Carrier on the strong side. Max Charbonneau and Pat Madore, who missed all of last year with an injury, provide excellent depth. Harry is gone, but that doesn’t mean there’s no longer a ball hawk in the secondary. Second-Team OUA All-Star Luke Griese, who was third in the conference with four interceptions, returns at safety. Montreal Alouettes draft pick Cody Cranston, East-West Bowl participant Alex Douglas, Emmanuel Aboagye-Gyan, and Mike Miller will also start. The kicking duties will be split between Loic Legendre, who averaged 37.7 yards per punt, and placekicker Campbell Fair, who connected on eight of his 12 field-goal attempts, with a long of 38 yards. Once again this edition of the Gee-Gees could be sneaky good. Nobody thought they’d finish second in the regular season a year ago, but they silenced any doubters. It would be a mistake not to respect a team that, for whatever reason, may surprise some people yet again. The next step needs to be getting to the Yates Cup final, something they came painfully close to doing in 2018, and something they’re certainly capable of doing this season.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

How much parity is there in the OUA? Both Queen’s and Laurier missed the playoffs last year. It’s not the way Pat Sheahan would have wanted his career with the Gaels to end, but none-the-less, we’ve turned the page to the next chapter of Queen’s football. Enter Steve Snyder. The former offensive coordinator at Western will now attempt to lead the Gaels back into the playoffs, but he’ll have to do it with a new quarterback and a more inexperienced team. The Nate Hobbs era is over. He averaged 333 passing yards per game – second in the conference – but has graduated. Training camp started as a battle between four quarterbacks, though it looks like two players have taken the lead in the race to be the starter. James Keenan and freshman Ryan Licandro of Ottawa had a slight advantage over Brendan Steele and Quade Kozak. This is going to be an interesting position to watch as the season progresses. There was an unexpected development when Chris Osei-Kusi left the program to join the Windsor Lancers, as he’s working on a law degree there. Coupled with the graduation of Matteo Del Brocco, the Gaels are down 69 catches for 1,222 yards and seven touchdowns. It also leaves the team with a group that has a total of just 11 OUA starts. There’s a number of younger pass-catchers anxious to get a chance to play; among them returning players Richard Burton, Sakhia Kwemo, Marko Xidos, and Ben Arhen. Others in the mix include Matt McDonald, Jake McGee, and freshman Sebastien Hansen from Victoria, B.C. There’s much more stability at running back, where Jake Puskas and OUA All-Rookie Team member Rasheed Tucker return, as does Burke Derbyshire. All three should see action this season. The running game became almost an afterthought because of the success Queen’s had throwing the ball, but with this new lay of the land, that should even out a bit in 2019. The offensive line is experienced and technically sound; in other words – a coach’s dream. Jacob Butler will be at left tackle. Josh Mosely and Adam Dingwall will start at guard, while the starting right tackle position was up for grabs as camp opened. Harrison Taylor, Jonathan Wedgbury, and freshman Evan Floren from Hamilton were the frontrunners. Offensive Coordinator Tom Flaxman will no doubt have some work to do. A new quarterback and a group of new receivers means there will be a steep learning curve. The talent of the offensive line, however, should help calm things down a great deal. On defence, Second-Team OUA All-Star Cam Lawson, who had four sacks and 7.5 tackles for a loss a season ago, will lead a front four that will include freshman Andrew Mullins-Grant from Montreal, as well as Blake Zarubiak. Tyler Roy and Yann Ky will also compete for significant playing time. Will Bannatyne will suit up as middle linebacker and Kurtis Schaefer will play the weak side, with players like Dominic Ciraco and Walter Karabin getting playing time as well. The strong side will be manned by either Connor McQuilkin, Nolan Bedard, or freshman Adam Sedore from Burlington. In the secondary, Zackary Kealey, who topped the team with 52 tackles, returns to play safety. The halfbacks will be Thompson McCallum and Oliver MacKenzie, who was the only Gael with multiple interceptions last year. Perry Amankwaah and Ejaz Causer will man the corners, wrapping up a veteran group of starters on the defensive side. Certainly, Defensive Coordinator Ryan Bechmanis has more experienced players to work with than his offensive counterpart, and it should be a good group from the get go that does nothing but improve as the season progresses. As for the kicking game, it’s once again solid with OUA Second-Team All-Star Nick Liberatore returning to the Tricolour. The kicker averaged 41.5 yards per punt in 2018 and connected on 14 of his 22 field-goal attempts, including a season-long boot of 42 yards. It’s difficult to project how good this team will be by season’s end. The sheer number of players with little to no OUA game experience makes it virtually impossible to make any kind of accurate prognostication. To make it tougher, the Gaels start the season against Carleton, Western and Ottawa; all three teams all but locks for the postseason. It must be considered a transitional year in Kingston. If all goes well in the second half of the season, the Gaels will be competing for the final OUA playoff spot, but the overall inexperience makes it difficult to foresee this as a group that will compete with the conference’s elite.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

If you wanted to know how many things went right for the Varsity Blues last year, the answer would be “very few.” A winless season, hot off the heels of a one-win year in 2017, didn’t bring many smiles to the Toronto campus, but Head Coach Greg Marshall’s program is confident there are better times ahead. One reason for the optimism is the return of quarterback Clay Sequeira. He showed improvement in his second season as the starter, before missing the second half of the season with an injury. He has a good arm and even better mobility. Sequeira will also benefit from attending the CFL’s Canadian Quarterback Internship Program with the Toronto Argonauts, where he attended the team’s training camp. He’ll be backed up by Matt Duffy, a transfer from Queen’s. Last season, the running game never really got going, averaging a conference worst 86 yards per game. The two backs who got the majority of carries last year both return, each trying to establish themselves as the starter. When all is said and done, though, it may be running back by committee. Adam Williams and Max Gyimah will be the frontrunners for the No. 1 job, but there are a handful of backs waiting in the wings if neither one of those two grab the opportunity. The Blues passing attack revolved around two receivers, and both are back to reprise their roles. Will Corby and team Offensive MVP Dan Diodati combined for 77 catches for almost 1,100 yards last year. Nick Stadnyk, Nolan Lovegrove, and Brayden Harris are expected to start as well. Former CFL player and most recently the offensive line coach at Laurier, Irv Daymond, takes over as the Blues offensive coordinator. He’ll no doubt spend some of his time working with a young o-line that should see seven or eight players rotate through. Among those in the mix are Mitchell Brake, Josh Dinunzio, the Mehry brothers, Mojtaba and Mostafa, Eddie Nam, and Matt Loenhart. Tyler Grisolia, a transfer from Guelph, will also compete for playing time. Daymond realizes that everything on offence starts with the offensive line, and that group will no doubt experience some growing pains. There are some good players at the skill positions, so the Blues should take a few steps forward on that side of the ball, and for a team that averaged just 15 points per game in 2018, there is certainly room for improvement. Veteran Defensive Coordinator Bob Mullin has a reputation as being a great teacher, and he’ll be doing a lot of that with a young group on that side of the ball, virtually at every position. The Blues gave up an average of 496 yards per game last year, so there’s plenty of work to do. Malcolm Campbell is back after being selected by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in this year’s CFL draft. He was third in the OUA last season with six sacks. Varsity is also excited about the potential of James Stockwood, a 6’6” freshman out of Bowmanville. Jackson Mayer returns after earning the Blues Rookie of the Year and OUA All-Rookie Team honours in 2018, as does Lukash Cunningham. Matt Renaud returns to play the strong-side linebacker spot, while Daniel Solaroli will man either the weak-side or the middle. The Blues will be trying to sort out the position at training camp, with Marshall saying there are six young players in competition for playing time. Jordan Gillespie returns for a fifth season and will start at one of the cornerback spots. Damoy Robinson is healthy once again and will play one of the halfback spots, while Jamal Johnson will start at safety. The Blues only intercepted one pass last year and will be set to significantly improve on that number. In the kicking game, Ethan Shafer averaged 35 yards per punt while connecting on six of his nine field-goal attempts last season. He’ll be pushed this year by Chris MacLean. There are some very good players on this year’s edition of the Blues, but there may not be enough of them for the team to compete for a playoff spot. The number of young players who will see playing time this year may lead to some short-term pain, but potentially long-term gain as this group matures.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

For several seasons the Waterloo Warriors were the OUA’s equivalent of the free space on a bingo card. Those days are long gone. The Warriors enter the season with not an expectation to compete for a playoff spot, but to compete for the Yates Cup; that’s how far this program has come in a just handful of seasons. It doesn’t hurt to have the most dynamic player in the country running the offence. Tre Ford is the reigning OUA MVP, and for good reason. Ford was second in the country with 2,822 passing yards, but much more impressively, led the nation with 27 touchdown passes against just two interceptions. He also finished ninth in the country with 641 rushing yards. His backup will be fourth-year Warrior A.J. Stewart, while hometown freshman Sam Hepditch is also in the fold. To make things tougher on opponents, Tyler Ternowski returns to lead the receiving corps. He totalled 1,159 receiving yards, 222 more than anyone else in the country. Twice he recorded over 200 yards in a game. He also led all U SPORTS receivers with 14 TD catches to eclipse his closest competitor by six majors. He’s not the only talented pass catcher in the group, however. Far from it, in fact. Gordon Lam – who had 60 catches and tied for fourth in the country – Barnaba Niel, Rushon Dagelman, and Jacob Beukeboom lead the remaining receiver group, and don’t be surprised if running back Brandon Metz sees some time at receiver. Metz will no doubt get some carries, but his fellow fourth-year back Dion Pellerin will get the bulk of the work. He finished with 547 rushing yards in 2018. Nicklas Sua and Derek Aubin will also see some action. The Warriors will be without the left side of their offensive line, as Jesse Gibbon was selected second overall by Hamilton in this year’s CFL Draft and Ben Koczwara, now graduated, also spending some time with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. That leaves seven players to fill the five starting spots. Kyle Harrington, twin brothers Troy and Grant Curtis, Greg Brand, Second-Team OUA All-Star Kyle Boismier, Spencer Andrews, and Jake Nesbitt are all veterans who will compete for playing time. Who will start and where they will play will be determined in camp. It’s been quite some time since the Warriors have had this kind of quality depth on the o-line. Head Coach Chris Bertoia’s team should have no problem scoring points, but it’s the other side of the ball that leaves some questions to be answered. The Warriors surrendered 34 points per game in the regular season, far more than any other playoff team. They should be able to reduce that number this time around, but by how much? The front four will feature Josh Brown, Dylan Whitty, Mike Perak, and Liam Mutunga. Dealius Danso will also compete for playing time, as will a recruit Waterloo is pretty excited about – Trevon Halstead. The 6’1”, 275-pounder from Brampton will no doubt find his way into the starting lineup at some point. The linebacking corps should be the strongest part of the Waterloo D, even though Jack Hinsperger, the OUA’s Rookie of the Year, is out for the season with a knee injury. His brother, Devon, returns, as do Kurtis Gray, Mike Reid, and Jake Surdykowski. The top recruit at the position is Jethro Oleko from Windsor. The secondary is led by Tyrell Ford, a Second-Team OUA All-Star, Tre’s twin brother, and a tremendous cover corner. OUA All-Rookies Andy Melo and Daeshaun Jupiter-Deane return for a second season. Geryd Lesage, the third starting freshman last year, and fifth-year Warrior Lautaro Frecha complete the starters. It’s still a relatively young group, but the question is how much it has improved. That’s the biggest challenge for Defensive Coordinator Darrell Adams, getting this unit to the point where the offence doesn’t have to score 35 points per game to earn the win. The Warriors are also excited about punter/kicker Jonah Zlatinszky, a transfer from Carleton. This is in all likelihood the most exciting team in the OUA, and perhaps in the country. Scoring points shouldn’t be a problem, but keeping opponents out of the end zone will be the difference-maker. If the defence tightens up considerably from a year ago, there could be a lengthy playoff run in store for the black and gold.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

There really wasn’t a lot of drama on the road to the Yates Cup last year, and the Western Mustangs were the reason why. The ‘Stangs beat Carleton and Queen’s in close regular season road games, but trounced everyone else. A pair of 33-point wins were the closest games they played the rest of the regular season, before beating the Ravens by 26 points in the semifinal and capping it off with a 63-14 win over Guelph in the Yates Cup final. Their average score was 48-11. They averaged 562 yards per game. Head Coach Greg Marshall’s team has set the bar impossibly high, but then Marshall has always liked a challenge. He also liked finding out that veteran quarterback Chris Merchant was returning to London after a tryout with the Montreal Alouettes. Despite having an awesome running game at his disposal, Merchant still averaged 264 passing yards per game, passing for 17 TDs against just five interceptions. He’ll once again be backed up by Kevin John. Alex Taylor and Cedric Joseph have both graduated, but the Mustangs still have the dangerous Trey Humes in the backfield. He averaged 6.9 yards per carry a year ago. Vaughn-native Jonathan Femi-Cole returns to Canada after graduating from the University of Minnesota. He’s taking his master’s at Western and should see a lot of playing time. Keon Edwards and Derek Best will also compete for carries. Harry McMaster is now with the CFL’s Edmonton Eskimos, but Western will still roll out a talented group of receivers. Brett Ellerman, Cole Majoros, Malik Besseghieur, and Griffin Campbell would normally post bigger numbers, but with the amount of times the team runs the ball, receivers stats pay the price. Among other players in the mix are Justin Nickson and Savaughn Magnaye-Jones. The offensive line took a hit via graduation and this is where the Mustangs depth will be tested. Elliot Beamer will start at centre, but then it’s a question of who starts and at which position. Spencer Hood flipped over from the defensive line and made a handful of starts on the o-line last year. Zack Fry will likely end up at right tackle, while Mike Pacifico, Dawson Hitsman, and Dylan Giffen will all see action. New Offensive Coordinator Gaetan Richard may not have the same level of talent that was there over the last two years, but it’s still an impressive group of athletes. Once again, the Western offence should be tremendous. The defensive line will feature a pair of veterans at end. Andrew Thurston and Deionte Knight return for another season. Nicolas Theriault and Mark Shelley will also see playing time, while Austin Fordham-Miller, Tony Rossi, and Malcolm Hinds will be part of the rotation on the interior. The linebacking corps has gone from a strength to a question mark this year. Fraser Sopik is now with the CFL’s Calgary Stampeders, while fellow starters Philippe Dion and Michael Moore have graduated. Myles Manalo returns after being injured late in the fourth quarter of the Mustangs Vanier Cup win in 2017. He’ll play the middle. Chris Ellis can play either the weak or strong side. Other players to keep an eye on are Shakiym Hoyte, and Tommy Ngongo, who could play the strong side. The secondary will eventually sort itself out as the Mustangs have several options. Bleska Kambamba, Daniel Valente, Jacob Andrew, Alex Salytchev, and freshman Kojo Odoom from Surrey, B.C. may be the starting group at some point. Defensive Coordinator Paul Gleason has been around the program for eight years as the D.C and was the linebackers coach for almost a decade before that. He has a great deal of talent to work with, but has to turn the athletes into a cohesive unit; something that may take some time. The kicking game is in great hands with Marc Liegghio. He averaged 42.5 yards per punt and connected on 19 of his 22 field-goal attempts, with his longest kick being a 42-yarder. For the last couple of years the Mustangs have been the conference bullies, kicking sand in the face of their opponents at will. This team may not be as good as the team that reached the Vanier Cup in each of the last two seasons, but the consensus is that Western is still the team to beat in the OUA.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

It’s the start of a new era for the Windsor Lancers. Long-time Lancer Joe D’Amore has been replaced as the head of the program by J.P. Circelli, who moves over from Western where he had been the Offensive Line Coach. There’s certainly room for improvement, coming off a 1-7 season, but the new coach is confident the Lancers are heading in the right direction. Part of the optimism is due to the return of Sam Girard. The local product is back for a fourth year, his second as a starter. He’s big at 6’4”, and is blessed with a strong arm. He’s also smart with the ball, as evidenced by his 13 touchdown passes against just four interceptions last year. He’ll benefit not only from another year of experience, but from a couple of receivers who have transferred to the Lancers. The highest-profile player of the pair is Chris Osei-Kusi. He heads to Southern Ontario having enrolled in the law program at Windsor. A fourthround pick by the Montreal Alouettes in this year’s CFL Draft, the former Queen’s star ran a 4.47 second 40-yard dash at the CFL Combine, the fastest of any prospect. He had 34 catches for 563 yards last year for the Gaels. Carson Oulette has also joined the program from Laurier, where he had 24 catches in 2017. Add that pair to a returning group of Tristan Carter, Brandon Speller, and the speedy Clayton Shreve, and suddenly it’s a much more formidable unit. The running game never quite got on track last year, which was surprising given Marvin Gaynor flirted with 1,000 yards two years ago. Last year, he was limited to 259 yards, with Marcus Kentner taking the majority of snaps. Kentner is iffy to begin the season as he recovers from an injury, but Gaynor is back. He’ll be pushed by Jacob Savoni, who cannot only run with the football, but has great hands out of the backfield and is a solid blocker. David Adeniran is expected to compete for reps as well. The offensive line simply won’t be able to replace Drew Desjarlais, now with Winnipeg after being selected fourth overall by the Blue Bombers in the CFL Draft. This will be a young group featuring George Una at guard, Colin Campbell at tackle, and C.J. Church at centre. There will be competition for the other two jobs, but look for Jaxon Morkin from the Essex Ravens and Owen Mueller, a top recruit from London, to contend for those jobs. The new Offensive Coordinator is the head coach’s brother Joe, a former Western player and coach who had a stint with the CFL’s Toronto Argos. The skill positions should allow the Lancers to move the ball effectively, but it will be up to the young offensive line to keep Girard upright and open up holes for the backs if the team is to really flourish. The strength of the team should be the defensive line, coached by the Circelli’s father Mike, who is a former Mustangs coach best known in London as a legendary high-school coach. He’ll have a solid rotation on the inside with Zack Benson, Austin Thornton, and Zack Taylor at tackle, as well as Zack Susko, Mitch Koostran, and Dale Teya at end. Dan Metcalfe is back at linebacker and that’s good news for the Lancers. He was third in the conference with 60 tackles and topped the OUA with five forced fumbles. Bennett Vani will also start at the second level. Nate Vaikla is back with Windsor, while the Lancers are hoping that Josh Van Roie is able to return from injury. Andrew Beatty will be the strong-side linebacker, with Erik Erickson also seeing playing time. Among the team’s top recruits is Liam Cumarasamy from Vancouver. The secondary is stocked with veterans, including Dan Stirling starting at safety, Kelvin Adeleye-Apanisile at half back, and Cole Verlinde at field corner. The Lancers are anxious to see where Wes Simpson, a local product from Herman Secondary, fits in as well. Defensive Coordinator Jesse Alexander returns for his second season with the Lancers. He’ll have several returning players to work with and it will be interesting to see how good the front seven can become. Griffin Fenton will replace Clark Green and will handle the punting and place kicking. It’s a new look Lancers team and one that might be in tough to compete for a playoff spot, but this is a squad that has the potential to surprise some people as the campaign presses on.

2019 SEASON PREVIEW

BY: MIKE HOGAN

It was another frustrating season for the York Lions in 2018. They finished the year at 3-5, again knocking at the playoff door, but not able to open it. That’s not to say the season didn’t have its highlights; the brightest of which being a dramatic 34-32 win over Waterloo. A victory like that gives head Coach Warren Craney’s program some confidence moving forward. Brett Hunchak returns for a fifth season after having arguably his best campaign in 2018. He set a career high with 2,252 yards while throwing 11 touchdown passes, one shy of his career best. Hunchak added a modest 264 rushing yards, but that was the second-highest total on the team. Noah Craney, the coach’s son, will once again be QB2. Another family connection is no longer, as Colton Hunchak is now with the brothers’ hometown CFL team – the Calgary Stampeders. The pair formed a dynamic combination, connecting 58 times for 610 yards and six TDs last season, but life will have to go on without the receiver. Alex Daley may be the best bet to become Hunchak’s new favourite target. He only caught 26 passes last year, but had a strong East-West Bowl week. Luther Hakanavanhu and Kadeem Hemmings will see more footballs thrown their way this season as well, while the Lions are hoping a pair of heavily recruited freshmen can quickly make an impact. Retsen Daley from Brampton and Jackson Hume, a football player/track athlete from Edmonton, both have the potential to be elite OUA receivers at some point in their careers. Speedy Kayden Johnson is back for another season at running back. He finished the ’18 season with 415 yards, but is capable of much more. He’ll be backed up by Darnel Jarrett, among others. OUA All-Rookie Team member, centre Caleb Palmateer, will have veterans on either side of him as Chavaughn Barrett and Luke Borsella will start at guard. The team will be young at the tackles, with a pair of freshmen – Evan Anseeuw from Walsingham, Ontario and Logan Scott from Centreville, Nova Scotia – among those in the running to start. Offensive Coordinator Kamau Peterson has a lot of youth, a lot of speed, and a talented, veteran quarterback to work with. This offence could sneak up on some people. The defensive line should be pretty good with three solid returning starters. First-Team OUA All-Star Rossini Sandjong-Djabome led the Lions with four sacks, and was among the conference leaders with nine tackles for a loss. Tevin McCarty and Kwadwo Boahen will also start, while one starting job and who will dress will be determined first at camp, then as the season progresses. The starting linebackers, meanwhile, are set. Dawson Davis returns after missing last season and will play the middle. Damian Jamieson will start on the weak side for the third-straight year, while the strong-side backer will be Matt Dean. The Lions were happy with their recruiting year at the position, with Hunter Bannon and Braden Hart, both from Napanee, Ontario, leading the way. The secondary will be led by safety Jacob Janke, who led the team with 47.5 tackles last year. The Lions are happy to have him back after he was drafted in the fourth round of the CFL Draft by Saskatchewan and almost made the Riders squad. Daniel Loggale and Daniel Amoako will see their playing time increase dramatically, with both lined up to start, while Gaetano Minto and Talik Ehouman are also in contention for starting roles. Defensive Coordinator Sammy Okpro will be doing a lot of teaching this season. Mistakes will be made by the younger players, but there could be substantial benefits not too far down the road. Dante Mastrogiuseppe is back to do the kicking. Last season, he averaged 39.4 yards per punt, while connecting on 11 of his 15 field-goal attempts. His longest of the season came from 44 yards out. There’s some pretty good talent on the Lions, but much of it is young. It’s tough to get an inexperienced team to compete with the OUA powerhouses on a regular basis, but it doesn’t mean the Lions can’t pull off an upset or two (just ask Waterloo). A playoff berth may be asking a lot, but if the talented recruits mature quickly, this may be a better team than most would give it credit for at this point

YATES CUP

Yates Cup competition began in 1898 in the inaugural season of the Canadian Intercollegiate Rugby Football Union. It is North America’s oldest football trophy still being presented, pre-dating the Grey Cup and the

Michigan-Minnesota “Little Brown Jug” by 11 years. The trophy was presented by Dr. Henry Brydges Yates, a former McGill football player who had graduated in medicine in 1893. A lecturer in bacteriology at McGill from 1893 to 1914, he later served as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Canadian Army Medical Corps during World War I. While overseas, Dr. Yates fell ill with bronchitis which claimed his life in 1915. From its inception through 1970, the Yates Cup was awarded to the top-ranked team at the end of the regular season. For much of that period, the league consisted of four teams (McGill, Queen’s, Toronto, Western), so a six-week schedule allowed a double round-robin format. A post-season playoff was only held if there was a tie for first place, or the second-place team had beaten the leader in league

play. As such, there were just 27 Yates Cup championship games before 1971, and a total of 65 to date. With the reorganization of the Ontario Universities Athletic Association in 1971, a formal playoff structure was introduced, and the Yates Cup was awarded to the winner of the championship game. Between 1974 and 1978, the Cup was awarded jointly to the champions of the East and West Divisions. Entering its 111th season of competition in 2018, the Yates Cup has been won the most times by the Western Mustangs, who have 31 league titles. The Varsity Blues, winners of the inaugural championship in 1898, stand second with 25 victories. This year’s Yates Cup will take place on Nov. 10 at the home of the highest remaining playoff seed.
