Tyler Cordeiro

Ontario & Nova Scotia standouts join AUS team’s 2014 class.

The latest recruits to join the St. FX X-Men hail from Ontario and Nova Scotia.

Tyler Cordeiro, Josh Millar and Joseph Wedsworth have signed with the team for the 2014 AUS season.


The 6’4, 365 pound lineman from Oakville, Ontario joins the X-Men after suiting up for his high school team, Holy Trinity Titans of the Halton Secondary School Athletic Association (HSSAA).

As for the X-Men, the team is thrilled that they were successful in landing a player that they have been courting for the past few years.

“Tyler is a student athlete we had been recruiting for a number of years; he seemed destined to attend StFX,” commented X-Men Head Coach Gary Waterman.  “His visit sold him on coming here; he loved the atmosphere and the campus.”

“Tyler is a big kid who moves very well for his size and has tremendous potential as a line of scrimmage player.”

X-Men Recruiting Coordinator and Defensive Backs Coach Gord Gallimore echoed the sentiments of Waterman.

“We are all really impressed with Tyler’s ability to move and change direction, he is a great addition,” added Gallimore.

Cordeiro will be studying Human Kinetics at St.FX.

Josh Millar


The 6’6, 210 pound quarterback from Ottawa, Ontario is not only transferring schools but also sports disciplines.

“I’m currently a student at Carleton University in my first year,” explained Millar.  “I redshirted for the Carleton University basketball team but after a lot of thought I decided to make the switch back to football because I missed it.”

Moreover, Millar had other factors which influenced his decision to commit to the Antigonish, Nova Scotia school.

“I chose St.FX because of the atmosphere that the campus brings and the passion that the people of St.FX university have for their football team,” added the Ottawa standout.  “I also believe that in the next wave of recruits we have coming in that we can make a Loney Bowl run and eventually a Vanier Cup run.”

“It should be a lot of fun and I’m looking forward to my upcoming years there.”

During his high school career with the Glebe Collegiate Gryphons of the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA), Millar had 21 passing touchdowns, four rushing touchdowns and caught five interceptions.

This upcoming spring, Millar will suit up for the Ottawa Myers Riders of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).  While at St. FX, he will study Developmental Studies.

“When we received the commitment from Josh we were ecstatic,” said Waterman.  “Josh seemed to be relieved and confident that X is the best fit.”

“In speaking with Josh’s family it was clear that they were all in and thrilled about the opportunity.”

Equally glad was X-Men Offensive Coordinator Steve Snyder.

“Josh is a 6’6 athlete who was originally committed to Carleton to play basketball,” commented Snyder.  “When he reached out to us we jumped all over him; we like the mental toughness and work ethic he brings.”

“Basketball players usually are the type of athletes who are always working on their craft, always in the gym trying to get better, we look forward to Josh being that type of person here at X.”

Joseph Wedsworth


His recent recruiting trip sold the 6’3, 230 pound defensive end from Eastern Passage, Nova Scotia on the AUS school.

“It gave me a great feel for the atmosphere of the school,” recalled Wedsworth, who will pursue a Bachelor of Arts Degree while at St.FX . “I can really see myself going there.”

“The coaches and players made it a pretty easy decision and made me feel very welcomed. I have only heard good things about the school from friends and family who attend. Given that I have only played football for three years, I feel that I have of room to grow as a player.”

This past season with the Cole Harbour Cavaliers of the Nova Scotia Student Athletic Federation Football League (NSSAFFL), the defensive end racked up 57 total tackles (including 34 solo tackles and 21 tackles for a loss) and eight sacks in eight games played.

Additionally, Wedsworth suited up for the Dartmouth Destroyers football organization.

“Joseph is a physically impressive young man from Cole Harbour that will add depth and compete at defensive end,” commented Waterman.  “He’s a very good athlete that has the tools to develop into a player at this level.”

“We believe the deciding factor was the connection he made with our staff and the excitement and energy he felt within our program right now.”
