Nova Scotia receiver joins OUA team’s 2016 class

#CFC100 Aidan Majury has committed to the Western Mustangs.

Majury, the 6’4, 220 pound receiver from Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

In 2015, Majury completed a stint with US prep school team Taft Rhinos in Watertown, Connecticut.  Prior to that, he has suited up for the Timberlea Renegades of the Nova Scotia Indoor Spring League (NSISL) as well as the Bedford/Sackville Saints Minor Football organization at the mites, atom, peewee and bantam levels. He has also represented Nova Scotia at both the Wilson Cup Challenge and Football Canada Cup tournaments.

During his career, the Nova Scotia standout has received multiple honours including Team Nova Scotia Larry Uteck Award for leadership and playing ability at the 2014 Canada Cup in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Captain of Team Nova Scotia and NSISL Offensive MVP (2014).

With his commitment, Majury becomes the third #CFC100 recruit to join the Mustangs.  The others are British Columbia linebacker Chris Ellis and Ontario athlete Alex Salytchev (Majury’s former Rhinos teammate).

Moreover, Majury is the first Nova Scotia recruit the Mustangs have added since 2012.  The last one was offensive lineman Kadeem Adams.

“We’re very pleased to announce the addition of Aidan Majury  to our program,” commented Mustangs Head Coach Greg Marshall.
“Aidan is a tremendous student and comes from a great program.”

For his part, academics played a significant part in Majury’s decision. Upon setting foot onto the London, Ontario campus, the offensive standout felt that the school could provide him the best opportunity to excel in his studies.

“Throughout my recruiting process, I was most focused on finding the best academic fit possible,” elaborated Majury, who has maintained a 94 percent average.  “After visiting Western, touring the academic facilities and speaking with Western professors, I knew that it would be a great fit.”

“Furthermore, I am excited about the opportunity to receive the best business education in Canada while studying in the HBA Program at the Richard Ivey School of Business. Ultimately, I know that Ivey will provide me with excellent future opportunities provided that I keep working my hardest in the classroom.”

Furthermore, the strength, reputation and eminence surrounding Mustangs’ athletics appealed to the receiver.

“I was attracted to Western’s rich tradition of continued excellence,” added Majury.  “I truly feel that Western will provide me with an amazing opportunity to succeed.”

“I look forward to contributing to the team’s success, and am thrilled to join the Mustangs.”

Ultimately, the receiver is thrilled to have a chance to work with Mustangs coaching staff.

“Western’s coaching staff has played a large role in my commitment,” expressed Majury.   “I have built a strong relationship with Coach [Tom] Flaxman and I can’t wait to play receiver for him.”

“Also, after meeting with Coach [Greg] Marshall, I was sold on the strength of Western’s program. Finally, Western’s Strength and Conditioning Program is excellent. Overall, I plan to work my hardest and learn from these coaches in order to become the best player I can be.”

Equally, the team is looking forward to adding a player who not only has tremendous playmaking abilities but also embodies the true essence of being a student-athlete while fitting the Mustangs’ prototype.

“Aidan is a great fit in our offense,” assessed Mustangs Recruiting Coordinator Tom Flaxman.  “He can stretch the field vertically with his speed, and his size and strength makes him a great blocker.”

“Aidan is exactly what we are looking for in a student athlete; he is an outstanding student and will be going into our Ivey Business Program.”
