For commits, ‘Windsor is the place to be’

Lancers add two Ontario commits to their 2019 team.

Offensive lineman Adam Tattrie from St. Jean de Brébeuf Catholic Secondary School and quarterback Andrew Brush form St. Mary’s High School will be giving their all to their new team, the University of Windsor Lancers.

Adam Tattrie

Adam Tattrie knew right away that Windsor was for him. “The school felt like home as soon as I stepped foot on campus. They had a unique program that I wanted to go into and the staff to student ratio was low,” said Tattrie, who is interested in the concurrent education program

The 6’1, 275lbs centre added that, “From a football standpoint, they just got a new head coach in JP along with his brother, Joe. I had been coached by JP before with Team Ontario, so that definitely helped with making the right decision. He is a great guy and a great coach.”

For the other coaches, Tattrie said they have a lot of CFL experience at the offensive line position with Coach Beardy playing in the CFL and winning a Grey Cup. “The coaching staff was great and with three full-time o-line coaches, you can’t go wrong if you are an offensive lineman,” he added. “It’s o-line U!”

Tattire, who is from Hamilton, Ontario, has played with the St. Jean de Brebeuf Braves (HWCAA), the Hamilton Ironman (OVFL), the Hamilton Hurricanes (OFC), and the Hamilton Varsity Tiger-Cats (OPFL). He competed in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge in 2016. He has also won a few offensive line and offensive MVP awards.

“This past year I won a championship with my school,” he said, “so that was a great way to end my high school career.”

When he reaches the Lancers, he hopes to carry forward that winning momentum. He said that, “Windsor is the place to be and it will be a hot topic in the out for years to come.”

Andrew Brush

For Andrew Brush, committing to Windsor made sense. “I have family in Windsor and academically it was a good fit,” said Bush, who is interested in criminology and law. “Windsor also has a law school that I plan to apply to post graduation.”

In terms of football, he said that, “The new coaches also bring great experience and a new vision for what the program will become. They’re really down-to-earth guys and I connected really well with them on my visit. They also come to the school with a winning tradition.”

Brush, who is 6’3, 220lbs, has played for eight total seasons. The product of Kitchener, Ontario, suited up for the Twin City Predators (OFC), the Cambridge Lions (OPFL) and the St. Mary’s Eagles (District 8). He was a District 8 all-star in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
