DL commit excited to call University of Windsor home

The Lancers add a top lineman to their Class of 2017.

The University of Windsor may be a change of scenery for Peter Eleftheroglou, a defensive lineman from Saunders Secondary School, but it probably won’t take long for him to get comfortable.

“The atmosphere of the campus made me feel like I had found my home away from home,” Eleftheroglou said. “The coaching staff is very welcoming and supportive.”

He added that, “They value the growth and wellbeing of all their players and as a recruit, I felt it was the perfect choice.”

Indeed, Eleftheroglou has already experienced the importance of ever-evolving one’s skillset. Prior to his fifth season with the Saunders Sabres (Thames Valley Regional Athletics), he lost about 50lbs in order to make the transition to the defensive line. Now at 6’0, 230lbs, the defensive tackle and end said the line was where he could use his improved versatility and speed to be an effective pass rusher and to plug up gaps on run plays.

Interested in Human Kinetics, Eleftheroglou added that he also chose Windsor because he felt it was an excellent academic fit. His hope is to specialize in movement science.

Eleftheroglou currently calls London, Ontario, his home. While with the Sabres, he was the 2013-2014 top junior lineman. At the 2017 edition of Jacob Ruby’s Next Level Lineman Camp, he was named as a top performer by the CFLer. He has also suited up for the London Junior Mustangs (OVFL) for one season.
