#CFCOPC PLAYERS TO WATCH: Team Halton-Peel Sophomore LB Sedore unfazed by big stage

The countdown begins to CanadaFootballChat.com’s Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) on the April 29th weekend. In the days leading up to OPC, CFC will preview the teams and players participating in the big event.


Throughout his career, Adam Sedore has always led by example, and is a very intelligent player.

“During the game I like to lead by example and motivate those around me. In addition to that I love to help the team play smart and keep level heads,” stated the 6’0, 175 pound linebacker. “By making smart decisions on the field I hope that the team will see me do that and follow along.”

Although he has only played for two seasons of high school with the Dr. Frank J. Hayden Huskies of the Halton Secondary School Athletics Association (HSSAA) and two seasons of 7v7 football in the International Development Fast Football League (IDFFL), he already relishes playing the linebacker position.

I play linebacker because of my athletic skill set and also because I like to be in every play,” expressed Sedore. “My favourite part of playing the position is being close enough to the line of scrimmage so you can make the big hit on the running back but you also have chance to drop back for interceptions.”


The Huskies captain from 2015 models his game and his lifestyle after Luke Kuechly of the Carolina Panthers.

“Luke Kuechly is a hard working guy who give his everything on every play,” elaborated Sedore. “I look up to him because he is what I want to be as a person in life. I want to work hard and give my all to help create a greater success.”

In just over a month from now, the Burlington native will add his first major event to his football résumé, when he takes to the turf at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton for the first game of the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) on April 29th.

“I was introduced to the OPC by other players talking about it. I have liked the process because we got to showcase our skills without pads first so the coaches could evaluate the type of athlete you are,” he alluded. “I also enjoyed the padded tryout because it gave and on field perspective of the competition level and the size and strength of kids.”


“By playing in the OPC I hope to gain exposure to universities and to scouts by playing against some of the best players in Ontario.”

Sedore says the big stage of the OPC is not going to faze him one bit.

“Playing on the big stage won’t pose a problem for me,” he said convincingly. “I have played under the pressure of championships and have thrived in that environment.”
