Ajax player coming back to GTA, transfers from Western to Toronto

University of Toronto brings in a commit from another university.

Cameron Fryer, a defensive lineman from Ajax, Ontario, will be switching his purple uniform for a blue one after transferring from Western to the University of Toronto.

Fryer, who is 6’0, 270lbs, has decided to change schools because of how close the school is to his hometown. “I’m excited to play in front of my family and friends again,” he said.

“I love the coaching staff and the team. To top it all off, UofT has spectacular facilities and it’s known to be one of the best schools in the world,” he added.

Fryer listed the coaching staff as having a major role in his decision to commit to the Varsity Blues. “I really like the tough-love that Coach Gary shows to everyone. He truly wants to make every person on the team a better man and not just a better football player,” he said.

“Coach Moore is amazing too. I have developed a good relationship with him over the years, as this is not my first time being recruited by U of T. He is very knowledgeable and he wants to win. I can’t wait to be around him,” he added.

Fryer has also played under Coach Cappiello in high school. He said he can’t wait to start working with him again as he knows what he is doing. “Overall, I’m extremely excited and blessed to get the opportunity to work with such a great coaching staff,” he added.

When he joins the Varsity Blues, Fryer said he is unsure as to what program he will be pursing. He said he is interested in Rotman commerce, actuarial science and accounting.

Fryer’s career is six years in the making. He has played with the Western Mustangs, the London Beefeaters (Canadian Junior Football League), the St. Michael College Kerry Blues (Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association), the Notre Dame Cougars (Lake Ontario Secondary School Athletics Association) and the Ajax-Pickering Dolphins (Ontario Varsity Football League). He was also a member of the GTA Rising Stars team. He had a stint in Massachusetts with the football preparatory team, the Andover Big Blue, as well.

In 2012, he was named an OVFL all-star. In 2013, he was named as the lineman MVP for St. Michael’s College. In 2014, he won an Iron Man award at Phillips Academy. During his stint with Western, he won an Iron Horse award for his work in the weight room.
