2005 OUTLOOK


OUTLOOK

2005 GOLDEN HAWK OUTLOOK Just three years ago, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks were coming off a tough 1-7 season that saw them miss the playoffs. The outlook was bleak, and many critics had already written the Hawks off as being stuck in a re-building process. Well, they were right, Laurier was re-building – the difference was that the process was quicker than anyone could have imagined. Following that 1-7 season, the Hawks bounced back with an impressive 8-2-0-1 run in the 2003 season, capped off with an appearance in the Yates Cup. Surrounded now with a strong coaching staff, and a crop of good young talent, Coach Gary Jeffries had lofty expectations last season, which the team exceeded. The Hawks went 8-0 in the regular season, they snapped McMaster’s four year OUA unbeaten streak and then capped it off with a Yates Cup victory in front of a record crowd at University Stadium. With all but four starters returning from last season, the Hawks hope to take the next step with their essentially unchanged group of players: their ultimate goal is to be crowned Vanier Cup champions on December 3, 2005.

ver, British Columbia will look to the veteran Hawks as he hopes to lead the Golden Hawks in the future. Running Backs Nick Cameron and Bryon Hickey bring versatile from the backfield of Stefan Ptaszek’s offense. Cameron had the third best season in Golden Hawk history for a running back, his 150 carries and 894 yards being surpassed only by Jim Reid’s 1977 season and Justin Praamsma’s 2000 season. Hickey rushed for 373 yards and had 350 receiving yards – both stats representing career numbers for him. Joining those veterans this year will be the Hawks’ top recruit out of Belleville Centennial, Peter Quinney. He will join Jon Coates, Dan McBride and Ryan Lynch for touches behind Cameron and Hickey. Receivers Many people considered last season’s receiving core to be among the best in the country. Sophomore Andrew Baechler followed up a strong freshman showing with an outstanding second year; 27 receptions, 624 yards and 6 touchdowns. Longtime Hawk Andrew Agro topped his exceptional 2003 season with career highs in receptions and yards (31 and 472 respectively). Completing the trio is Joel Wright, who had “only” 16 catches last season – half of them went for touchdowns. All three are back, and joined by a wealth of depth at the position. Mike Maurice, Will Northcote, Ryan Branting and Adam Sheerer have also all returned. Local athletes Dillon Heap, Matt Valeriote and Brian Richardson, as well as Mississauga product Victor Webster, are all part of this year’s recruiting class and will look to impress at camp, in hopes of cracking the dress roster.

OFFENSE Scoring was not an issue last year, as the Hawks averaged 43 points per game and over 470 yards of total offense. 11 of the 12 starters have returned – with many of them coming off of career years with the Purple and Gold. Quarterbacks The quarterbacking position has not looked better for the Hawks since the early ‘90s and the days of Bill Kubas. Ryan Pyear is coming off a career year that saw him complete 59% of his passes for 1,866 yards and 21 touchdowns, and culminated in his selection as a Second-Team All-Canadian. Backing up Pyear will be the reliable trio Jamie Partington, Dante Luciani and rookie Ian Noble. Both saw limited action last season, making a total of only 18 pass attempts. Partington has been backing up Pyear for three straight seasons proving that he can step up when called upon. Luciani impressed as a freshman last season, proving that the quarterback position at Laurier is in good hands for years to come. Noble, out of West Vancou-

Offensive Line As already mentioned, the major loss this offseason has been the departure of Second-Team All-Canadian Offensive Tackle Ryan Jeffery. His leadership in the locker room is irreplaceable, but the void he leaves on-field will be eased by one of the best first-year class of O-linemen Laurier has had in years. Sarnia Northern product Adam Bestard, son of former Golden Hawk Doug Bestard, heads the newcomers,

OUTLOOK Defensive Backs The defensive back field was hit the most this offseason with the loss of both cornerbacks Steve Frake and Second Team All-Canadian Conor Healey. To ease this loss, Golden Hawk scouts went to Fanshawe College in London to secure their top Defensive Back recruit, Jahmeeks Beckford. He and fellow newcomers Scott Mitchell, Peter Provenzanno and Vince Flamia will help to shore up the secondary. Leading the way will be First Team All-Canadian Safety Ian Logan, who is coming off a season where he had 30 tackles, 2 forced fumbles, 4 interceptions and 1 sack. Returning at Rover will be the hard hitting tandem of Josh Maltin and Bobby Kootstra.

and will be joined by promising freshmen Casey Potter, Jeremy Chemij and Reyn O’Born. Anchoring the line in Jeffery’s absence will be returning starters Kyle Weston and Mitch Zappitelli. DEFENSE Last off-season Coach Gary Jeffries decided to alter his defensive formation from a 4-3 to a 3-4. The switch proved to be a good one as the Hawks only allowed 16.5 points per game, and a number of players flourished under the new system. 9 of the 12 starters are back and hope to repeat their success from one season ago. Defensive Line The defensive line is one of the deepest positions for the Hawks this year. All three starters, Kyle Armour, Brandon Keks and Adrian Houwer, are back with the team. David Montoya, Craig White and Joe Labenski add depth, while a pair of recruits from London, Dillon Carter and Ray D’almeida, solidify and an already strong position. Last season the line held opponents to just over 100 yards rushing per game and only 4.0 yards per carry. With almost everyone back and the injection of a pair of youngsters the Hawks hope to continue their strong play against the run.

SPECIAL TEAMS Field position played a very important role in the success of last season’s Golden Hawk squad. All of the key players on special teams are back including Brian Devlin, Andrew Baechler and Ian Logan. Kicking Game Brian Devlin is back for his third season as a Hawk. Last year he put up historic numbers, setting Laurier records for Converts (39), Kickoffs (51) and Kickoff Yards (2493). He also had the second most prolific scoring season, accounting for 91 points, only 5 points behind Jim Reid’s record 96. Brian has also gained a reputation for making big kicks – the biggest being his final-second field goal to beat McMaster in Week 4 last year, 34-33. Laurier was able to grab the top kicking recruit in Ontario; Chris Mamo is coming off a stellar year at London Lucas and hopes to make the transition to the CIS brand of football.

Linebackers In a 3-4 defensive scheme, the most important players are the linebackers. The formation requires them to be athletic enough to defend against the pass and aggressive enough to attack the run. Led by SecondTeam All-Canadian Jesse Alexander, the Hawks have a very talented linebacking core that meets these needs. Alexander is joined by junior Justin Phillips – who is coming off a breakout season for the Hawks – and together this tandem combined for 69 tackles, 12 sacks and 2 interceptions. Last year the other two linebacker positions were held by Lee Maggiacomo and Brian Sloot – both of whom have now graduated. Lee’s brother, Anthony Maggiacomo, and sophomore Luke Pinder hope to have the same kind of impact on opponents as Alexander and Phillips did last season. Also, watch out for Paul Hancock, Laurier’s top Linebacker recruit from Calgary, to potentially crack the dress roster.

Return Game Breakout playmaker Andrew Baechler made a name for himself as a receiver, but in fact earned a First-Team OUA All-Star selection as a special team’s returner. He handled 48 punts last season, averaging 10 yards, returning one for a touchdown. Ian Logan set two Golden Hawk records returning the ball on kickoffs. His 15 returns for 327 yards were both Laurier bests. Baechler and Logan will once again be responsible for a bulk of the returns this season and hope to build on each of their outstanding performances.

OUTLOOK

OUA 2005 OPPONENTS Sept. 5 - Laurier at Queen’s - 2:00 pm

Opponent: Queen’s Golden Gaels Head Coach: Pat Sheahan 2004 Record: 2-6 (9th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Queen’s: 3-4 Current streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2005: The Golden Hawks travel to Kingston to meet the Queen’s Golden Gaels for their 2005 season opener. It has been two years since these teams last encountered each other; in 2003, they were neckand-neck as the Golden Gaels defeated the Hawks in regular season play 26-23 while the Hawks were victorious in a thrilling semi-final overtime game, defeating the Golden Gaels 36-33 to send them to the Yates Cup Championship. While the Hawks had another successful season in 2004, the Golden Gaels did not prove to be as fortunate. finishing 9th in the OUA. Queen’s has recruited athletes nationwide this year in hopes of developing their football program.

Sept. 10 - Windsor at Laurier - 7:00 pm

Opponent: Windsor Lancers Head Coach: Mike Morencie 2004 Record: 3-5 (7th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Windsor: 30-10-2 Current streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2005: The Hawks started off slow in their meeting against the Lancers last season, trailing by a score of 15-0 at the half. Refusing to give up, Laurier managed to stay in the game with the help of their strong defense and their offense picked up its game in the second half to finish off the Lancers, 40-21. Coming into this season the team from Windsor has high expectations. They have landed some top recruits including Lancers head coach’s son, Matt Morencie, one of the most highly recruited offensive lineman in the country. The team also returns this year with impact offensive players including inside receiver Arjei Franklin and running back Daryl Stephenson. Arjei Franklin was selected as first team All-Canadian leading the CIS in touchdown receptions and fourth in total yards receiving in 2004.

Sept. 17 - Laurier at Ottawa - 2:00 pm

Opponent: Ottawa Gee Gee’s Head Coach: Denis Piché 2004 Record: 5-3 (4th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Ottawa: 8-7-1 Current streak: Laurier 3 wins Outlook for 2005: Last season the Hawks defeated the Gee-Gee’s in regular season action and in a convincing 46-7 semi-final win, which allowed them to advance to the Yates Cup Championship. The competition between the two teams this year should be intense as both the Hawks and Gee-Gee’s return with many veterans, including their second year quarterback Joshua Sacobie. In his rookie year, Sacobie passed for 1665 yards on 218 attempts. He will surely be a critical component to Ottawa’s offense again this year. Ottawa will be a team to watch for this season as their young team grows and gathers experience, making veterans of their lineup.

Sept. 24 - McMaster at Laurier - 2:00 pm

Opponent: McMaster Marauders Coach: Marcello Campanaro 2004 Record: 7-1 (2nd in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. McMaster: 35-12-1 Current streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2005: After losing to McMaster for four straight years, the Hawks triumped last season defeating them at Homecoming as well as in the OUA Championship to take home the Yates Cup. In defeating the Marauders at Homecoming, the Hawks ruined what would have been a 40 game winning streak for McMaster, and the Laurier Yates Cup victory ended the Marauders’ streak of three straight championships. Though losing some key playersfor 2005, the Marauders will still be an elite team in the OUA. This year the Marauders must play without their star running back Jesse Lumsden, who carried for 1816 yards last season scoring 21 touchdowns, as well as other Marauders leaving to pursue CFL careers. Adam Archibald should make a large impact for the Marauders this year replacing Jon Behie as their new full time quarterback. McMaster continues to pose as a threat as they are expected to have another great recuitment class.

Oct. 1 - Waterloo at Laurier (Homecoming) - 2:00 pm

Opponent: Waterloo Warriors Head Coach: Chris Triantafilou 2004 Record: 2-6 (8th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Waterloo: 32-14-1 Current streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2005: The Battle of Waterloo should make for an entertaining Homecoming as the two crosstown rivals compete for the bragging rights of the city. The Warriors had a disappointing season in 2004 carrying a record of 2-6. The Hawks defeated them convincingly last season in a 44-3 win, giving the Warriors very few yards up the field. This year Waterloo hopes to build on their relatively young team. Having retained many players, they are looking to advance their football program so that they may be stronger in seasons to come.

Oct. 8 - Laurier at Western - 2:00 pm

Opponent: Western Mustangs Head Coach: Larry Haylor 2004 Record: 6-2 (3rd in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Western 17-35-0-1 Current streak: Laurier 1 win Outlook for 2005: Last year the Golden Hawks defeated the Mustangs for the first time in 10 years in a close game with a score of 38-34. Laurier came up with a game winning touchdown with only seconds left in the game. Coming in third in the OUA last season with a record of 6-2, the Mustangs are determined to retake lost glory in 2005. Western will be one of Laurier’s biggest competitors this season with their offence being one of the top in the leauge. Leading the way for the Mustangs is fourth year wide receiver Andy Fantuz. Fantuz was selected as a first team AllCanadian for the 2004 season, having broken the all time receiving yards in only his third year. Western loses quarterback Chris Hessel this year, but there are high expectations surrounding incoming quarterback Mike Faulds. Faulds is a transfer this year to Western from the University of Toledo, where he had been playing on a scholarship.

Oct. 15 - York at Laurier - 2:00 pm Opponent: York Lions

Head Coach: Tom Gretes 2004 Record: 3-5 (6th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. York: 28-5 Current streak: Laurier 1 win Outlook for 2005: Last season’s matchup against the York Lions was one of the most exciting, seeing the Hawks come out on top by a score of 3819 to earn their first ever undefeated regular season, with a record of 8-0. York struggled last year, finishing the season with a record of 3-5. This year they are optimistic as their roster consists of many veterans, including their star running back Andre Durie. Rushing for a total of 1367 yards last season, Durie was selected as a 2004 second team All-Canadian. He will prove to be a threat again this year as his shifty running style has been difficult for teams across the OUA to defend against.

Oct. 22 - Laurier at Guelph - 2:00 pm

Opponent: Guelph Gryphons Head Coach: Tom Arnott 2004 Record: 4-4 (5th in the OUA) Laurier All-Time Record vs. Guelph 32-12 Current streak: Laurier 2 wins Outlook for 2005: Last season Guelph improved their overall record from the previous year’s 2-6 to a better appreciated 4-4, and this year they are looking to improve further still. In last year’s meeting against the Gyphons, Laurier domniated Guelph on their home field and won by a score of 53-13. This year the Gyphons will need to pick up their game, especially on the defensive side, as last season quarterback Ryan Pyear threw for 234 yards against them while running back Nick Cameron rushed for 155 yards. Guelph is expected to have a competitive squad this year now that their many 2004 recruits have their first year under their belt. With their relatively young team, the Gyphons hope to yet again improve their ranking in the OUA for the 2005 season.

From 1984-1988 Jeffries was also the women’s basketball coach at WLU. In 1989 he took a break from football and coached the men’s basketball team until 1996. In 1994 Rick Zmich convinced Jeffries to return to the game which he loves so much. Gary has coached 27 football seasons at WLU, with 17 as Defensive Coordinator. He was named the interim head coach midway through the ’02 season and was named the full time head coach in 2003. He has coached in 17 Yates Cups including last year’s championship victory. Since taking over at the helm of the Hawks, the team has gone 18-3-1 including two Yates Cup appearances. Coach Jeffries has coached over 700 games in total for WLU (both football and basketball), and his passion for WLU sport remains undying.

“Hawks Defeat Blues 67-0 in Season Opener” by Matt De Faria Waterloo, ON - Opening the 2004 OUA season, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks defeated the Toronto Varsity Blues 670, in front of a crowd of 3,852 packed into University Stadium Monday night.

Individual Statistics Rushing (A/Y) Passing (A/C/Y/T/I) Receiving (C/Y) Defense (T/A/S/I)

The game featured many new faces, as the Blues showed off their young and inexperienced recruits and the Hawks played almost their entire dressing roster in the second half. Right out of the gates, Laurier put together a 7 play, 88 yard drive, capped off by a Ryan Pyear to Andrew Agro connection up the middle, and didn’t look back from there. “It was good to be able to give everyone a chance,” Coach Gary Jeffries of the Hawks said. “For the most part, this is a young team, much younger than last year’s squad, and it felt good to see everyone play as well as they did today.” Jeffries should have been impressed as his young lines, on offense and defense had a strong game, allowing Hawk backs to rush for 222 yards, and holding Blues’ to 33 yards.

Late in the third quarter it looked as if the Blues were finally going to break through for a score as Stinson hooked up down field with Dave Saliken for a 35 yard gain into Laurier territory. However, a penalty and two failed passing attempts later, the Blues were punting the ball right back to the Hawks.

For Steve Howlett’s club it was all about finding the silver lining on a dark cloud. “We played a stronger team game this year, as compared to last year.” This is Howlett’s second season as head coach of the Varsity Blues.

Despite the lopsided score line, the quarterbacks for both teams were definitely what people were talking about before the game. Highly-touted Calgary product Mark Stinson, for the Blues, took his first snap in the OUA, and Ryan Pyear for the Hawks, were under the helm.

Toronto’s first possession saw rookie quarterback Mark Stinson, on his first pass of the game, throw an interception to Jeff Smeaton, who ran the final 36 yards to pay dirt. “Both quarterbacks for us (Stinson and David Hamilton) showed promise, we’re really excited about that,” Howlett said after the loss. “We’re a young team that made some rookie mistakes. We’ll watch the film again, make some notes and improve for next week.”

Pyear came out as the clear cut winner being named player of the game for Laurier, going 12 for 13, 290 passing yards and 3 touchdowns. Overshadowed by Pyear’s performance was Andrew Agro who, caught 7 balls over 132 yards.

By the start of the third quarter, with the Hawks up on the Blues by 41, many of the Laurier starters took a seat, allowing the second and third stringers to enter the game.

Stinson struggled through some growing pains passing 5 for 14 and 2 picks. Backing him up was fellow freshman David Hamilton who didn’t fare any better going 1 for 6 and 5 yards. On the other side of the ball, Blues player of the game, linebacker Derek Wheeler had 14 tackles, and was in on one sack.

Running backs on both sides did much of the work in the final two quarters as Jon Coates (3 rushes, 43 yards) and Dan McBride (5 rushes 41 yards, 1 touchdown) handled the ball for the Golden Hawks, while Marc Gaudette (16 rushes, 36 yards) carried for the Varsity Blues.

The game also saw another top prospect quarterback, the Hawks’ Dante Luciani, gain some playing experience, throwing his first ever OUA touchdown, before rushing for another in the fourth quarter.

“Hawks Battle Back to Take Lancers” By Ari Grossman Waterloo, ON – This afternoon, the unranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks defeated the #9 CIS ranked Windsor Lancers, 40-21 in a game littered with miscues. In total, there were 11 turnovers. Windsor jumped to a 15-0 lead despite having a negative yardage at the end of the half. Two interceptions helped to setup the first two Lancer touchdowns of the game. A couple of fumbles prevented the Hawks from moving down the field and as a result, Lancer Ryan Henderson put a 50-yard punt into the end-zone for a single point. The next two quarters saw the Hawks rally back with 37 unanswered points. “The team never quit, even when they were down and it wasn’t going right, they didn’t quit,” said Gary Jeffries, Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach. “The defense and special teams kept us in the game until the offense got going and then, we just took off.”

with seven tackles (four assisted), two sacks, a forced fumble and an interception. For the Lancers, it was Jason Cruciano that had a superb game. Seven tackles (two assisted), a sack and a fumble recovery kept the defensive lineman busy.

It was Ryan Pyear who orchestrated the comeback after a rocky first-quarter. The four-pass drive, concluded with a 24-yard touchdown by Bryon Hickey. Brian Devlin was then able to pick up a single after his 47-yard punt fell into the Lancer end zone. Sophmore Andrew Baechler then tied up the game on a 58-yard punt return. Devlin put a 22 yard field goal between the posts to put the Hawks up by three going into the halftime break.

Pyear finished the game 15 for 27, 295 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions while Dent was 10 for 27, 137 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Lancers had difficulty moving the ball. In fact, the team was forced to punt the ball 13 times, allowing the Hawks to respond with touchdowns by Joel Wright and Bryon Hickey. Windsor Quarterback Jon Dent finally put together some offensive movement with an 84-yard drive culminating with a TD. “We had a total breakdown. The team took a huge step backwards today,” said Windsor Head Coach Mike Morencie. “The Laurier D[efensive]-Line just dominated us. John Dent had no time at all.” Both players of the game come from defenses that had busy afternoons. Jesse Alexander represented the Golden Hawks

“Laurier Football Ends 10 Year Drought in London” by Matt De Faria London, ON - In a game between two bitter rivals the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks (3-0) went into a hostile TD Waterhouse Stadium and beat the Western Mustangs (1-2) at home, 38-34, for the first time in 10 years. The game was truly a story of two halves, the first dominated by the Hawks and the second by the Mustangs.

The Hawks opened the scoring seven minutes into the game on an end-around run by wide out Andrew Baechler. They capped off the quarter with a brilliant pass and catch over the middle from Ryan Pyear to Joel Wright, just as time expired. “We played a flawless first half of football,” says Laurier Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “Our defense was superb, and our offense moved the ball consistently and error free,” he continued. Western’s comeback was sparked at the end of the first half. A pass-interference call, 34 yards down field put the Mustangs within striking distance as the clock wound down. A six yard strike from Chris Hessel to Jeff Keeping made the game interesting going into the locker room.

find a way to get his team to at least within field goal range to send the game into overtime. The offensive play calling on the final drive was outstanding. With the ball on their own 38 yard line, the Hawks got a generous spot on third down, giving them a drive, extending their first down by half a football.

The second half set the table for what proved to be a thrilling finish. Following a prompt two and out by the Hawks, the Mustangs proceeded to march into Laurier territory and pull within six, 24-18.

Knowing they had just caught a break, the Hawks went over the top with a 42 yard bomb from Pyear to Baechler, putting Laurier in range for the tie and threatening to win. A pass interference call at the goal line put the Hawks one yard away from victory. After being stuffed on their first try, Offensive Coordinator Stefan Ptaszek called for a play action short out to Will Northcote, who came up with the ball and the win for the Golden Hawks.

In a game filled with back and forth action, the Golden Hawks responded on their following drive, as Pyear orchestrated a 74yard drive down to the Western one yard line. Bryon Hickey finished it off, restoring Laurier’s 13-point lead, which held up until 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter.

“I was so proud of our guys out there today, we played hard, our defence was strong and we only committed 3 penalties,” Coach Jeffries said of his team. The Hawks struggled last year, committing on average 9.3 penalties per game. That number has dropped significantly this season to just over 5 per game.

“We felt confident playing with the lead, allowing our defense to play up to their potential,” Jeffries said of the second half. “We may have allowed more points than we wanted to in the end, but we came out with the victory, and that’s what matters.”

Ryan Pyear was great today, going 17 of 24, 250 yards and 3 touchdowns. His game was complimented by the rushing attack of Nick Cameron who had 133 yards on the ground. While Northcote may have caught the game winner, Joel Wright was the story of the first half, as his two touchdowns set the tone for the Golden Hawk win.

The Golden Hawk 13 point cushion was dispelled by two Greg Ross touchdowns, totaling 16 unanswered Mustang points, leaving Laurier down by three points, with only two minutes and nine seconds left on the clock. It was now up to Ryan Pyear to run the two-minute drill and

“UPSET! Devlin kick pushes Hawks past Marauders” by Matt De Faria Waterloo, ON – In a stunning upset, the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks beat the McMaster Marauders, 34-33 at University Stadium, Saturday afternoon.

“We’re absolutely thrilled,” said Hawk Head Coach Gary Jeffries, amidst a mob of fans who rushed the field at the end of the game. “This is a continuation of what we’ve been doing all year, and that’s never to give up when we’re down.” The game featuring the number two team in Canada, McMaster, and the number seven team in Canada, Laurier, lived up to all the hype surrounding it. After falling behind 14-0, the Marauders fought back before the end of the half, and cut the Hawk lead to just a field goal before half time.

until the end,” Coach Jeffries said. “Our coaching staff here is just outstanding. They had the team prepared for this game and that was definitely a contributing factor in the win,” he continued. “We’re still a young team, and we’re only going to get better.”

The second half saw four lead changes, as both teams put on an offensive display. Laurier’s ability to hold McMaster star running back Jesse Lumsden in check in the first half was a major key to their success. However, in the second half, he broke out and rushed for 74 of his 112 rushing yards, and scored his only touchdown.

The game definitely showcased both teams passing attacks, as six of the eight touchdowns scored in the game were through the air. Ryan Pyear of the Hawks finished with 271 yards, and three of those touchdowns. Meanwhile, his favorite target, and ‘Player of the Game,’ Andrew Baechler, totaled 134 yards and one touchdown.

The culmination of the entire game came down to the final eight minutes, with Laurier trailing by two scores, 33-24. Laurier pulled within two points after a quick strike 36 yard pass from Ryan Pyear to Andrew Baechler, and were given their chance to win on a big third down stop of the Marauders in their own 20. r> This set the Hawks up in field goal range, with 24 seconds left. “I was just concerned about getting the snap down and making sure the hold was good,” Laurier kicker, Brian Devlin said. “Once it went through the uprights, I just pointed to the Laurier name on my chest,” he continued. “This was just a great win for the football program here and for the school.”

Their counterparts on the Marauders, Jon Behie and Vaughn Swart also had productive days. Behie threw for 207 yards, while Swart was his main receiver with 94 yards and two touchdowns. Foiling much of the running game were two big time players from each squad. For Laurier, the linebacker tandem of Jesse Alexander and Justin Phillips were dominant throughout the game. Phillips had two sacks, including a crucial one on McMaster’s final drive. Alexander on the other hand, had five tackles and was in on a sack as well.

“What we need to do now is review, and look at what really happened here today,” said McMaster Head Coach Marcello Campanaro. “It’s hard to tell if you’re improving or not when you’re winning by large margins,” he continued. “Now we can really evaluate ourselves and find out where we are.” On the other side of the field it was a different story. “Our kids were really tremendous out there today. They played hard, they played with skill and most importantly, they competed

TEAM STATISTICS

For McMaster, it was all about Jeff Robertshaw on the line and Tristan Clovis in the secondary. Robertshaw was in Pyear’s face all day, collecting 3 and half sacks. While Clovis was all over the field tracking down Hawks and finished with seven tackles.

Waterloo, ON – The Battle of Waterloo just wasn’t a battle this time around. This evening the #3 CIS ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks rolled over their crosstown rivals, the Waterloo Warriors 44-3 in front of a crowd of just over 2,000. The win comes after Laurier handed McMaster their first regular season loss in 39 games last weekend. “We come out ready to play, It doesn’t matter who the opponent is, every week, we’re ready to give it all,” said Gary Jeffries, Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach. Laurier, now 5-0, showed why they are second in the league with the least yards allowed as the Warriors only had a paltry 142 yards on offense. Waterloo’s Jon Morbey completed 6 of 19 for 55 yards before Mike Sexsmith came in. Both Waterloo quarterbacks were picked off once by Laurier defensive back Ian Logan.

Waterloo’s three points came in the second quarter off of a 21-yard field goal by Ian Nichol. Next weekend the Golden Hawks travel to Guelph to compete against the (3-2) Gryphons at 2 p.m.

The Hawks had every offensive weapon on the field, 7 receivers, 9 rushers and 3 quarterbacks all contributed to Laurier’s 485-yard offensive attack. Nick Cameron, announced as the Ray Owens Player of the Game, picked up the first two touchdowns for the Hawks. The geography major rushed for 157 yards over 20 carries. The other Golden Hawk touchdowns were scored by Joel Wright, Andrew Baechler and Adam Scheerer. Pyear, playing just over 30 minutes in the game, completed 7 of 14 for 170 yards and one touchdown. Finishing off the game were quarterbacks Jamie Parrtington and Dante Luciani. The rookie Luciani completed 6 of 7 for 93 yards and two touchdowns.

“Pyear Throws for 234 Yards and 4 TDs as Hawks Defeat Gryphons 53-13” by Ari Grossman Guelph, ON – In front of 1,500 fans at Alumni Stadium in Guelph, the #2 CIS ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks cruised to a 53-13 victory over the Guelph Gryphons. Laurier’s defense dominated the game, allowing Guelph only 250 yards of. The Gryphons’ only had 10 first downs as a result of their inability to convert the third down. Gryphon quarterback Balthazaar threw five for 13 for 79 yards and a touchdown. He was pulled as soon as he was picked off by Laurier defensive back Conor Healey. Matt Bryans later replaced him, going two for eight.

Guelph’s lone touchdown came in the second quarter off of a 50 yard pass to Jeff Keegan. The team then missed the two-point convert. Guelph’s remaining points came from Graydon Baker on three field goals, two were successful while one was wide and got them a single. For the Hawks, running back Nick Cameron led the afternoon with 155 yards and a touchdown over 20 carries. Bryon Hickey also had five carries on the afternoon for a total of 49 yards. The running game, 261 yards, was well balanced with the 297 yard air attack, even on what was probably the windiest day of the season. Ryan Pyear completed the day 14 for 27 for a total of 234 yards and four touchdowns. Pyear also ran twice for 35 yards. On the receiving end was a variety of people including Andrew Agro (6/109, 2TDs), Joel Wright (3/66 1TD), Mike Maurice (3/37/1TD) and Ryan Branting (2/41). Kicker Brian Devlin had a respectable afternoon, making three of five field goals and the six converts. Defensively, the Hawks’ Ian Logan had a good afternoon with six tackles (4 solo/2 asst). Bobby Kootstra also had a good performance, running a fumble recovery back for a touchdown. The Golden Hawks, now 6-0, host the Ottawa Gee Gee’s next weekend at University Stadium in Waterloo at 2pm. The game will be broadcast live on 570 News and tape delayed on Rogers Television at 8pm.

“Hawks Top OUA, still Unbeaten” by Matt De Faria Waterloo, ON – The Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks clinched first place in the OUA, grabbing home field advantage for the post-season, with a convincing 29-9 win over the Ottawa GeeGee’s. The weather took much of the spotlight as the overcast and on again off again showers spoiled the evening for the 1,562 fans in attendance at University Stadium.

“We couldn’t be happier around here,” said Hawk Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “This is just the first goal we had set at the start of the season, to go into the playoffs with home field advantage.” Last season Laurier lost out to McMaster on their turf. With the conditions causing fits for both offenses, the game turned into a battle of the defenses and ultimately a struggle for field position. There was little in the way of quality drives put together by either team, with many drives being prolonged by vast number of penalties called. When all was said and done, the two teams combined for 22 penalties, accounting for 186 yards.

Now 7-0, and have clinched the OUA’s top spot, next week’s game at York (3-4) becomes crucial for the Lions in their hunt for a playoff birth. After next week, Laurier has a bye, and will begin their run at the Yates Cup, in the OUA Semi-Finals at University Stadium on November 6th. Check with www.laurierathletics.com for ticket information.

“We played a very undisciplined team today, in some very unfavourable playing conditions as well,” said Coach Jeffries. “When you haven’t been exposed to that kind of play and those kind of conditions, you react differently, it’s all part of the game,” he continued. “We’re definitely going to address the situation, prepare for our final game of season, and try to close out on a winning note.” Despite the weather, the Hawks jumped out to an early 14-3 lead on the strength of two Ryan Pyear touchdown passes to Andrew Baechler and Joel Wright. Going into the lockers at halftime, the Hawks had a ten point lead 14-4. If you missed the first half, then you missed much of the scoring. The second half was riddled with undisciplined and sloppy play. With the ball wet half the time, much of the offense took place on the ground. Hawk running back Nick Cameron had a solid day, rushing 26 times for 149 yards and a major. “I think we did just enough offensively to win the game,” Coach Jeffries explained. “Our defense was where I think we won the game.” Defensively, the Hawks only allowed 105 total yards, the least all season. Not to mention three sacks, 3 forced fumbles and one interception. ‘Defensive Player of the Game’ Ian Logan had two of those forced fumbles and was responsible for the interception as well.

“Laurier Football Makes Team History, Finishes Perfect 8-0” By Ari Grossman Rushing (A/Y) Passing (A/C/Y/T/I) Receiving (C/Y) Defense

Toronto, ON – The number 2 CIS ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks made school history today when the team finished the regular season with a perfect 8-0 record for the first time, with a 38-19 defeat of the York Lions at York Stadium in Toronto. The last time the team finished with an undefeated record, was back in 1966, 7-0, as Waterloo Lutheran, as a member of the Ontario Intercollegiate Football Conference. It was 1995 when the Ontario University Athletics Association changed the regular season from seven to eight games. “There have been many good players, good teams that have come out of Laurier,” said Laurier QB Ryan Pyear. “For us to be the first team to do this [finish 8-0], it’s incredible.”

Laurier’s defense pulled out a strong game, this coming as both the offense and special teams had some difficulty starting up. The Hawks intercepted York QB Bart Zemanek five times. Both Jesse Alexander and Yannick Carter returned the pics for touchdowns, while Ian Logan, Jeff Smeaton and Conor Healey were able to stop the York attack. Zemanek finished the afternoon 6 of 21 for 81 yards.

As a result of last week’s victory over the Ottawa Gee Gee’s, the Hawks have first place in the league going into the playoffs. The team gets a first-round bye before they host their semi-final game on November 6th at 1PM at University Stadium in Waterloo. Tickets for the game are on sale at www.laurierathletics.com.

York’s Andre Durie became only the second rusher to surpass 100 yards on the Hawks. Durie led the game with 129 yards over 27 carries. He also scored a touchdown. Laurier Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach was excited about the win, but concerned with some of the performance. “We didn’t come out and execute early on when we should have, only in the fourth, against the wind, were we able to.” Ryan Pyear, 15 of 30 for 185 yards, connected to Andrew Baechler for two touchdowns while the third offensive major of the afternoon came from Nick Cameron on the ground. Cameron’s and Baechler’s touchdowns were less than twominutes apart and late enough in the game to put the game out of reach for the Lions. With the regular season now at a close, several Laurier records were matched or broken this season. Kicker/Punter Brian Devlin has his name written in the books for several records including; number of kickoffs – 51, kickoff yardage

Waterloo, ON – The nationally second ranked Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks are hosting the Yates Cup. The provincial championship will take place on Saturday November 13th at 1pm at University Stadium and comes after the Hawks defeated the Ottawa Gee Gee’s 46–7 in front of a crowd of 2,722. “We’re truly excited at the opportunity to play and host the Yates,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “We know what it feels like to be there, this year we’ll be prepared.” The Laurier defense played a spectacular game, allowing only 22-yards of offense in the first half and an additional 99 in the second. Two interceptions, two fumble recoveries and seven sacks were all a part of their strong efforts, proving why they are second in the country in least yards allowed per game. Ottawa held the reins for the first quarter, opening up scoring with a single off of an 85-yard kickoff which got by Ian Logan (Waterloo, ON). Late in the quarter, Joel Wright conceded a safety touch to put the Gee Gee’s up three. Those would be the only Ottawa points in until the fourth quarter.

quarterback Jamie Partington (Waterloo, ON) made only one pass in the game, the last TD completion, a 22-yard shot to Adam Scheerer (Waterloo, ON). Ara Tchobanian got the remaining four Ottawa points on a 37-yard field goal and a 52-yard single. Ottawa QB Josh Sacobie went six for 17 for 56 yards before being replaced by Mike Crabtree who was four of eight for 73 yards. Both were picked off once. Both guys were taken down by a barrage of Hawk defenders including David Montoya (Burlington, ON), Yannick Carter, Craig White (Mississauga, ON), Brandon Keks (Coquitlam, BC), Adrian Houwer (Cayuga, ON), Gavin Cond (Sault Ste. Marie, ON) and Justin Phillips (Kitchener, ON).

Five minutes into the second, Brian Devlin (Sarnia, ON) tied up the game with an 18-yard field goal. Within four plays Ottawa’s luck ran out. A bad snap led to a loss of 25 yards and then an Ottawa offside nullified a possible correcting 43-yard pass. As if it couldn’t get worse, a pass intended for JeanPhilippe Asselin was tipped by Yannick Carter (Waterloo, ON) to Steven Frake (Etobicoke, ON) who returned it 65-yards for the first major of the game. On the ensuing kickoff, Devlin scored a single as the wind picked up the ball and put it through the end zone. “You’ve got to lose some tough games first before winning,”said Ottawa Special Team’s Coach Chris Gauvreau. “We’re a young team that’s progressing, all the credit goes to Laurier, they played a very strong game.” Two more touchdowns were scored in the first half, first Nick Cameron (Norland, ON) scored off of a screen pass followed by a 13-yard TD pass from Ryan Pyear (Belleville, ON) to Andrew Agro (Burlington, ON). Pyear finished the game in the third after making another TD completion to Joel Wright (Stoney Creek, ON). The veteran quarterback threw 14 for 19 for a total of 217 yards, and three TD passes.

Waterloo, ON - The Yates Cup has come back to Wilfrid Laurier University for the first time since 1991. In a game played in front of a University Stadium record 8,175 fans, the Golden Hawks defeated the McMaster Marauders 31-19. Earlier this season the Hawks ended the Marauders 39-game OUA winning streak and with the win today, they ended their four year reign as Ontario champions.

Our success this year is a result of teamwork and cohesiveness, said Golden Hawk Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach, Gary Jeffries. When we play as a team, it gives a chance to win every game, he continued. Just having the opportunity to play in a game like this is a tremendous feeling, winning it is all the more gratifying considering the work that these players and this coaching staff has put into our team.

The second half opened much like the first half, a battle for field position. The teams exchanged field goals in the third quarter, giving way to the drama which was about to ensue in the final 15 minutes. We’ve been doing this all year, Pyear said. We fall behind early, and we always play as a team and find a way to comeback.

McMaster started the game without number 28, their star running back, Jesse Lumsden, in the lineup. Lumsden, who was injured in the OUA Semi-Final against the Western Mustangs, was on the sidelines in his sweats to support his team with a bone contusion in his left knee.

McMaster’s Mike Ray opened the festivities with a field goal giving his team a 19-11 lead. The combination of Ryan Pyear and Joel Wright took over from there. After a solid 28 yard return by Baechler and a five yard run by Nick Cameron, Pyear found Wright behind the defenders for a 30 yard pitch-and-catch touchdown. With the crowd now in a frenzy, Lee Maggiacomo made a momentum turning sack on Adam Archibald, giving the Hawks terrific field position, and giving Pyear and Wright another chance to hook up. The 21 yard touchdown gave the Hawks their first lead of the game.

The first half was a struggle for field position and was won by McMaster, who scored 10 of their 13 first quarter points off of Golden Hawk turnovers in their own end. A Bryon Hickey fumble led to a Mike Ray field goal, and a deflected Pyear toss was intercepted by Jason Pottinger, leading to an Adam Archibald seven-yard pass to quarterback turned wide receiver Jon Behie.

The defining drive of the game happened with 1:03 left on the clock and the Marauders pinned deep on their own 10 yard line. Adam Archibald overthrew Vaughn Swart on first down and BJ Mallot on second down. Running out of time and downs, Archibald looked for Mallot over the middle again, who was promptly crushed by Lee Maggiacomo, securing the 97th Yates Cup in favour of the Hawks.

They came at us with a lot of emotion early on in the game, said Laurier quarterback Ryan Pyear. They were definitely fired up, it seemed like their defense was blitzing, putting pressure up front every play. It didn’t help that the Hawks were taking drive-ending penalties at all the wrong times. With the momentum going the other way, and the crowd silenced, Andrew Baechler stepped up. The Hawks’ OUA All-Star wide out was double covered all game until seven minutes into the second quarter when Pyear was finally able to find him with man to man coverage 40 yards down for the major. The crowd erupted. By half time, there was belief, that last year wasn’t about to repeat itself. By halftime, Mac’s 13 point lead was cut to five, 13-8.

Amidst a mob of fans who swarmed the field, Golden Hawk team captains were presented the Championship Banner, as well as the Yates Cup. The other piece of hardware, The Dalt White Trophy, for most outstanding player in the championship game, was awarded to Andrew Baechler, who finished with 3 catches, 74 yards and a touchdown.

The Hawks coming off of an impressive 10-0 run in Ontario University Athletics (OUA) and their first Yates Cup in 13 years, faced Laval for the first time in the schools history and met the strongest defense in the country. “They were too much for us today,” said fourth year Laurier quarterback Ryan Pyear (Belleville, ON). “We couldn’t adjust as quickly as we wanted to.”

“We had a great season. No one will take it away from us,” said Manager of Football Operations and Head Coach Gary Jeffries. “The game put the other leagues into perspective for the future, and will allow us to build on what we had this season.”

The Laurier offense had trouble in the first half, only able to put a single point on the board – as a result of Brian Devlin’s (Sarnia, ON) wide-left 34-yard field goal. Pyear only connected once for a major – on the eight-play, 75 yard drive in the third quarter. The one-yard catch by Mike Maurice (Waterloo, ON) wasn’t able to change the momentum of the game as Laval responded with another TD only three-minutes later. Devlin finished off the Laurier scoring with a 26-yard field goal in the fourth.

Five players at this point will be graduating this season including, defensive back Steven Frake (Etobicoke, ON), linebackers Lee Maggiacomo (Cambridge, ON) and Brian Sloot (Waterloo, ON), Offensive linemen Ryan Jeffrey (Lyn, ON) and Stephen Braun (Toronto, ON). Although losing the five-defensive players, Coach Jeffries was quite optimistic for next season. “We’ll be back next year… You can count on the Hawks to be a threat again.”

The WLU offense finished with 289 yards – only 68 on the ground. Pyear completed 17 of 30 for 221 yards. Pyear also threw three interceptions. The number-one Laval defense broke up eight of Pyear’s passes while also holding the rushers to an average of 2.8 yards a carry. Laval’s Jeronimo Huerta-Flores was named the Uteck Bowl MVP for his second consecutive season. The Mexican native carried 22 times for 161 yards and two touchdowns. The Rouge et Or offense was effective, moving the ball 404 yards. QB William Lelerc was 7 of 19 for 115 yards and a TD. He also carried for 40 yards. It was about twenty-seven minutes, that the Golden Hawk defense was on the field. The group led by Jeff Smeaton (Brantford, ON) - seven tackles, five assisted and a fumble recovery as well as Jesse Alexander (Waterloo, ON) – five tackes, seven assisted were consistently trying to hold Laval.

1991

Laurier 25 Mt. Allison 18

The Laurier Golden Hawks took home the Vanier Cup for the first time with a 25-18 victory over the Mount Allison Mounties before more than 30,000 fans at the SkyDome. Laurier running back Andy Cecchini carried 22 times for 130 yards and tied a Vanier Cup record with three touchdowns. The Golden Hawks, OUA and Churchill Bowl champions, jumped out to an early 11-0 lead in the first quarter as Cecchini ran one yard for his first touchdown. The AUAA champion Mounties cut the margin to a converted touchdown by halftime on a 38-yard field goal and a 28-yard single by Eric Deegan. Laurier took a large lead in the third quarter on a two-yard run by Cecchini and a 19-yard pass from QB Bill Kubas to Cecchini to make the score 24-4. The Mounties, however, staged a spirited comeback as Grant Keaney ran 27 yards for a touchdown and slotback Mark Huys caught a 33-yard touchdown pass from Sean Hickey. The Laurier defense tightened up late in the game and preserved the victory. Cecchini won the Ted Morris Trophy as the game’s outstanding player.

The Cup went West again as Alberta defeated Waterloo Lutheran 20-7. The Golden Bears used three quarterbacks to secure the win with appearances by Gary Weisbrot, Terry Cairnes and Roy Beechey. Waterloo Lutheran’s Gerry Blacker scored a touchdown and rushed for 134 yards in a solid performance as the Golden Hawks suffered their third Vanier Cup loss.

The Hawks won their first Vanier Cup in 1991. They beat Mt. Allison by a score of 25-18 to give them the title of National Champions. NOTES: Championships won are denoted by bold text. In 1973 Waterloo Lutheran Changed It’s name to Wilfrid Laurier University

WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY

HISTORY OF WILFRID LAURIER UNIVERSITY In 1910 the Canada Synod and Synod of Central Canada of the Lutheran Church entered into an agreement to establish a Lutheran Seminary. Though the location first proposed for the Seminary was Toronto, Waterloo was selected when its citizens offered a tract of land on the boundary of the town. The choice of location was affected, too, by the fact that the majority of Lutherans in Ontario lived in the vicinity of Waterloo and Berlin (Kitchener). In 1911 the Evangelical Lutheran Seminary of Canada opened its doors. Facilities for pre-theological education were established in 1914 with courses leading to senior matriculation given in Waterloo College School. In 1924 the Waterloo College of Arts, providing courses in post-secondary education in a four year program, was established. In 1925 the Faculty of Arts, under the name of Waterloo College, affiliated with the University of Western Ontario. Waterloo College soon began to offer Honours degree programs in the arts. The affiliation with the University of Western Ontario ended in 1960 when the Seminary obtained a revised charter changing the name of the institution to Waterloo Lutheran University. On November 1, 1973, Waterloo Lutheran University became Wilfrid Laurier University, one of Ontario’s provincially assisted universities after Bill 178 was given Royal Assent by the Lieutenant Governor, former Wilfrid Laurier University Chancellor William Ross Macdonald.

With its foundations solidly rooted in the past, a community oriented mindset and appropriate means to have a strong future; this city has something for everyone. Concerned with moving into the future with a strong sense of “community”, the Imagine Waterloo campaign is taking the city by storm. This is a proud community, determined to broaden the horizons and opportunities for all who reside here. The college and universities promote the city with a good reputation, having a variety of jobs, economic growth and the ongoing influx of young people that continues to keep the city vibrant and dynamic. In a recent pole held within the community, the presence of the universities made the top five likes within the city. Also included in the top five likes were the parks, especially Waterloo Park which is located with vehicle entrances off Albert Street, Westmount Road and Seagram Drive. Uptown Waterloo, (another top five) is conveniently located for the university students. With the reliable transit system or a good pair of walking shoes the shopping centers, grocery stores, bars and pubs are accessible to all. The businesses in the area are appreciative of

The entertainment factor within the city is very alive. Take a drive up to Conestoga Mall for some shopping or stop by the new Galaxy Theatres to see a flick. The bar scene on University Avenue is the place to be in the evenings with choices of Fiasco’s, Loose Change, Molly Bloom’s and McGuiness. Recreation in Waterloo is on the rise with the new addition of RIM Park located off University Avenue East. This new 500-acre recreational facility will house 18 outdoor playing fields and the first municipal 18-hole golf course. Also included is a Multi-Use Recreational facility which houses 4 Olympic size ice rinks, 2 double gymnasiums and much more. Closer in proximity to the universities is the Waterloo Recreation Complex, a facility that includes an Olympic size ice rink, indoor running track and a swimming pool…home of Golden Hawks hockey. Waterloo is no doubt a great place to live. As a key center in Canada’s Technology Triangle, the place to go for a famous Oktoberfest sausage, or the place to study for a PhD or Mba Waterloo is the city of choice.

DAVID MCMURRAY, DEAN OF STUDENTS

David McMurray is Assistant Vice-President Student Services and Dean of Students at Wilfrid Laurier University. He assumed this position July 1, 1997 after a career in student services at the University of Windsor. He has served as Chair of the Ontario Committee on Student Affairs, has been President of the Student Affairs and Services Association, serves on the faculty of the Canadian Institute on Student Affairs and Services and is currently the President of the Canadian College and University Student Services Association. Born in Windsor, Ontario, David spent most of his early days growing up in Thunder Bay Ontario where he excelled in many sports including football, basketball, baseball, track, tennis, hockey and skiing. A severe knee injury ended his active participation in sport. “I had a very difficult time giving up the contact variety of athletics but was able to make the adjustment to aerobic activities like swimming and long distance biking which have become life long.” Word has it he can handle the golf course pretty well too! David’s interest in Golden Hawks football goes back to two games he fondly recalls in the mid-seventies. While at the University of Windsor he recalls an exceptional Lancer team

that beat the Hawks in Windsor by a score of 63 to 7. That was extraordinary but short lived as a Tuffy Knight thoroughly motivated Hawks squad returned the following year turning the tables on the Lancers with a 77-6 thrashing. Since arriving at Laurier several years ago David is regularly seen in purple and gold. He not only never misses a game but has masterminded a strong strategy for the long-term success of Athletics and Recreation at Laurier. The keys to his strategy of “building champions” comes from investing in management, coaching, student athlete development, facilities, equipment, recruitment, program development, sponsorship and fundraising. The outcomes have been obvious in this short time and the Golden Hawks are in great shape for the future!
