Golden Hawks ‘very welcoming and friendly’

Laurier adds two Football North players to their 2018 class.

The first time wide receiver Dante Mitchell from Football North St. Joseph’s and defensive back Ayo Ajayi from Football North Clarkson probably met was the North Bowl, but now they will be seeing a lot of each other as teammates of the Laurier Golden Hawks.

Dante Mitchell

When Dante Mitchell was reviewing schools, he couldn’t help noticing the structure of Laurier. “I chose this school because of how organized the football program was and how good the coaching staff is,” he said. “I think the coaching staff is very smart and are very friendly.”

Interested in Finance, Mitchell added that, “I am very committed to the sport and my studies and I hope to continue to play football after university.”

Before joining the Ottawa edition of Football North, Mitchell, who is 6’1, 175lbs, played with the St. Joseph’s Panthers (CSAA) out of Cornwall, Ontario. There, he was the 2016 MVP. The following season, while playing with the Cornwall Wildcats (NCAFA/OVFL), he was the team and offensive MVP. He will be taking part in the 2018 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge.

Ayo Ajayi

Ayo Ajayi was looking for a family, and he has found one with the Golden Hawks. “They have an amazing coaching staff that doesn’t only focus on the football aspect of things, but they really care about every single player on their roster, which is very important to me because I like that type of a relationship,” he said. “Also, with that being said, the environment and people at WLU are very welcoming and friendly.”

Ajayi, who is 5’11, 170lbs, added that he feels that the Golden Hawks are a serious program that is dedicated to winning. He is interested in Computer Science.

Ajayi is from the Mississauga Football North squad. He spent two years with the team. Originally from Brampton, Ontario, he played two years with the St. Edmund Champion (ROPSSAA).
