DL/OT Stefanyk dedicated to the game

Warriors’ standout is open to all considerations.

In the game of football, mental strength and a positive attitude is as important as physical strength, but you don’t have to remind Daniel Stefanyk, a defensive lineman/offensive tackle for the Huron Heights Warriors (York Regional Athletics Association), of that.

Stefanyk’s football career is only as old as his high school one, having played the game for only three years with the Warriors. His love for the game, however, has spanned over several years. “I was introduced into at an early age, following my brothers football years, and I knew that’s what I wanted to do,” he said.

Despite his short career, Stefanyk already has an OFSAA championship under his belt. Last season, he helped his team win the Simcoe Bowl over the Superior Heights Steel Hawks with a staggering score of 48-0. ”It was a great opportunity for our team to show how great our team truly is and to be selected to play against one of the top teams in the province was a great honor,” he said.

Standing at a towering 6’2, 220lbs, Stefanyk has found himself playing on both sides of the ball. He has tried his hand at being a defensive lineman, an offensive tackle, a fullback and a tight end.

Set to graduate in 2017, the young player said he is currently open to all CIS and NCAA schools. He also said that he has yet to decide if he is going into the medical field or business field. He has not made any official visits and has not committed to any team as of late. He added that the recruitment process has been good so far and he plans on visiting some university football camps in August.

As Stefanyk tries to navigate through his future, he knows he has the support of those around him. “The most influential people in my life are my parents, on and off the field. Same goes for my teammates and coaches; they are my family,” he said.

During the week, Stefanyk attends two speed development camps and two alternative training sessions. He also has five weight training sessions a week. He said he plans on getting bigger and faster for this upcoming season. He added that he also wants to work on the little things that can make him a better player.

In the end, Stefanyk knows that improve starts with the right mindset. He said, “I’m dedicated, hard working, and always willing to go the extra mile. I set high standards for my self and people I surround myself with.”
