Adam Tattrie began playing football in the Hamilton Minor Football Association (HMFA) with the peewee Ti-Cats as a starting centre in 2011. The centre was voted Offensive MVP before making a move to the rep HMFA, where he played with the Jr. Ti-Cats. He then took one last jump to the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) in 2014 to become two-time All-Star and Offensive Line Captain with the Hamilton Ironmen.

Tattrie has now been an Ironman for three years, which is also how long he has been playing with the St. Jean de Brebeuf Braves in the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic Athletic Association (HWCAA). As a Brave he has been a team captain every season and has been awarded an Offensive Line MVP award.

During his off seasons, Adam is a member of World Gym, where he works out three to five times a week to maintain a healthy lifestyle. He also practices snapping the football at different lengths.“My goal with the OPC [now Fox 40 Prospect Challenge] is to get noticed and ‘open some eyes,’” said Adam. “I am an undersized guy that has the potential to be something great.”

“With the proper coaching and opportunities I believe I can be an amazing addition to any team,” continued the centre. “One who can make a difference and contribute to its overall success.”

The 2018 graduate sees the CFC100 list as an honour, but not so much as a goal of his.

“For me it is about working as hard as I can, putting in the best effort possible in every game, working hard during the offseason and learning with every snap I make, being long or short,” added the Brave. He believes that no matter how good you are, there will always be someone better, and that if he truly believes in himself and believes that he is the best, then he is the best.

On the field, his idol is Sean Taylor, safety fort he Washington Redskins, because of what he accomplished both on and off the field.

“His work ethic was admirable,” commented Adam. “He overcame many obstacles in his lifetime.” Unfortunately, Taylor passed away just when it appeared he was getting his life back in order. “He taught me that any obstacle can be beat, both on and off the field,” explained the Brave. “He was an amazing player.”

Adam loves football because it is truly a team sport and it has taught him to work collaboratively to be successful.

“Football is a sport that I have excelled at, with every snap, good or bad, it has helped me perfect my skill and enhance my team building,” said the centre, who also said football is a sport that comes very naturally to him. “The drills and responsibilities of the position give me confidence in myself and help me be the best player I can be,” continued Adam.

“Football gives me the opportunity to ‘go out and hit someone without getting in trouble.’”
