CFC100 twins hope to bring winning ways to Waterloo

Warriors 2017 class continues to grow with the addition of two #CFC100 commits.

Who doesn’t love a good twin story, especially if the twins are both #CFC100 recruits? Highly touted quarterback Tre Ford and defensive back Tyrell Ford from AN Myer Secondary School made waves again after the twins both committed to the Waterloo Warriors.

The Waterloo Warriors had a tough 2016 season having gone 0-8 on the year. When Tre Ford learned about this, it spoke to him. “It’s like when we (him and his brother) were heading to high school and the school didn’t win a game three years before. So, I feel like we can turn the program around and start winning again at Waterloo,” Tre said.

And did he ever help turn around his high school team. During his four years with the A.N Myer Marauders (Southern Ontario Secondary School Athletes Association East), Tre helped his team to four straight Ontario Federations of School Athletic Associations championship titles. He will be looking to bring his winning touch to the Warriors.

“I liked Waterloo and their program. I haven’t met every single coach, but they are all nice and smart guys. I met with the most important coaches to me. Head Coach Bertoia is one of the best coaches in the U Sports league and it will be an honour to learn from him,” the future recreation and leisure student added.

In his twelve-year career, the 6’0, 175lbs football player has played with the Niagara Generals (Niagara Regional Minor Football Association) and the Niagara Spears (Ontario Varsity Football League). He has won his fair share of OFSAA MVP awards and was a Spears offensive MVP among his many other awards.

This season, Tre and the Spears lost in the OVFL semi-finals to the Cambridge Lions. It added a bit of fuel to the fire when he played against Jacob Hespeler (Central Western Ontario Secondary Schools Association) in the OFSAA championships. He said many of the Jacob players were on also Lions.

Tre will be joined by his brother, Tryell Ford, in the Waterloo locker room. Tyrell finds himself on the defensive side of the ball. Standing at 5’11, 170lbs, the defensive back has also shared in OFSAA success with his brother and the Myers Marauders. Both hail from Niagara Falls, Ontario.

“The reason that picked Waterloo is because its a great school. Its football program is turning around and I want to be a part of it. The players there really embraced me when I was there on my official visit,” Tryell said.

“The school has a great coaching staff and I feel comfortable talking to all them. It feels like a second home already. That brought me in and I felt like I was family. I talk to them all the time and I can definitely tell that they care about me and want me as a part of the Waterloo family,” he added.

In his academic pursuits, Tyrell is considering going into the sports management and marketing program. He said he knows he wants his future to involve sports.

With a desire to win, Tre has a message for the other U Sports teams. He said, “Just want to say good luck to all universities this year, except when they play Waterloo.”
