Dylan Whetter began playing football in the spring of 2014 at the bantam level with the Brantford Bisons. In the fall, he played his first high school year as a member of the St. John’s Eagles in Brantford. His position was offensive left guard and right tackle. In the spring of 2015, Dylan continued to play with the Brantford Bisons junior varsity team and St. John’s College. His main position was offensive right tackle. This year, he was selected to be one of the captains for the St. John’s team and received the Most Improved Player Award.

During the fall of 2015 until the spring of 2016, he participated in the OPC sophomore tryouts and was successful in making Team West. Currently, Dylan is playing offensive left guard with the junior varsity Brantford Bisons. He was also successful in making Team Ontario under-17 and looks forward to competing in the Spalding Cup this July in Quebec.

It meant a lot to Dylan when he participated in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (#CFCOPC) tryouts.

“The opportunity to attend all four tryouts allowed me to grow and improve each tryout,” he says. “The level of coaching and training I received was like no other I had experienced. The tryouts gave me more confidence in my abilities and I found I was better prepared for the start of my spring season.”

In terms of the recruitment process, he hasn’t committed to any schools, but he has been approached by McMaster, Carleton and Wilfrid Laurier.

Dylan has always had supportive people in is life.

“My parents are the most influential people in my life,” Dylan says. “They attend every practice and game, cheering me on. They support me and push me when needed, encouraging me to be the best I can be on and off the field.”

His goal is to improve his strength and foot speed for next season.

“During the off-season, I have attended several football camps, participated in weight lifting and cardio training programs,” he says. “I look forward to competing for a position on the senior Team Ontario.”

Dylan is well aware that he must do well academically in order to play football after high school.

“I realize that my GPA has a big impact on my ability to play university football,” Dylan says. “After graduating high school, I plan to head to university and study in the field of sciences. I am thinking about a veterinary degree.”
