CFC100 ready to continue winning tradition with Western Mustangs

Western reels in big catch, adds CFC100 to their Class of 2018.

It was a relationship that started in his freshman year, and now it has come to fruition after CFC100 Brandon Tatsu signed his letter of intent with the Western Mustangs.

“Western was the first U Sports school to recruit me in my freshman year, so I have had a long, growing relationship with their recruitment coordinator, Coach Chris Marcus,” Tatsu said. “I have been on many visits and I fell in love with the campus and the city of London.”

Originally from Windsor, Ontario, Tatsu won’t be too far from home. The future political science student added he was drawn to Western because of their amazing academics before considering football. But, the football program isn’t that bad of a deal either.

“The football program speaks for itself. Western is always a top contender for the national championship every year,” Tatsu said. “They have a great coaching staff.”

The 6’2, 190lbs wide receiver currently plays with the Holy Names Knights (Windsor and Essex Country Secondary School Athletic Association). He has suited up for a variety of teams, such as the Chatham Kent Cougars (OFA) and the Essex Ravens (OFA).

In 2014, he represented the tournament-winning Team Ontario in the International Bowl. The following year, he was with Team Ontario at the Spaulding Cup where he captured a bronze medal. He has also played two Red and Black games (OFA) and participated in the BTG 7v7 tournament in Michigan.

Tatsu has been selected twice to participate in the Football Canada Cup. He has won a WECSSAA championship in his junior days. He is a former OVFL all-star and a team MVP with the Ravens. In his sophomore year, he was an offensive MVP with the Knights.

With his own success in football, Tatsu is looking towards the bigger picture when he reaches Western. He said, “I have had a great relationship with the coaching staff and the players and I want to help continue the winning tradition.”
