Guelph offers commits good balance of academics, football

Guelph welcomes two Ontario commits to their 2019 class.

Being a student-athlete is being just that, a student and an athlete, and Lucas Pyz, an offensive lineman from Joan of Arc High School, and Evan Horne, a receiver from St. John’s College, knows they will get the best of both worlds with the University of Guelph Gryphons.

Lucas Pyz

Lucas Pyz of Barrie, Ontario, is ready to make the most of his time with the Gryphons. “They have an amazing facility to make sure I reach my fullest potential as a student-athlete not only on but off the field too,” said the potential landscape architecture student.

“The coaching staff is exactly who I want to have coaching me for my future years there at Guelph,” he added. “They care about academics just as much as athletics, which will always keep me motivated to stay on top of my work.”

Pyz, who is 6’2, 295lbs, spent five years shoring up the offensive line with the Joan of Arc Knights (GBSSA). He won a GBSSA championship in 2015. He was also the Knights’ offensive lineman of the year in 2015 and 2018. In 2016, he was the team’s varsity rookie leader of the year. That same year he participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. Last season he helped his team win another GBSSA championship and was an OFSAA Simcoe Bowl finalist.

Evan Horne

Evan Horne is a member of the St. John’s Eagles (BCSSAA). Standing at 6’2, 185lbs, he calls Brantford, Ontario, home.
