Intimacy of MTA appeals to FB commit

Mount Allison welcomes and out-of-province commit to their Class of 2017.

Despite it’s size, Burlington, Ontario, has a small-town feel, so it won’t be a huge change for FPC Mitchell Unwin, a fullback from Nelson High School, when he joins the Mount Allison Mounties.

“I really liked the size of the school and how close everything is and the smaller class sizes and the family atmosphere of the team,” the product of Burlington said. He added that he is entering university with an undeclared major in order to see what program catches his eye.

The ten-year veteran has already been welcomed into the Mounties family with open arms. “It was a very welcoming experience,” Unwin said of his visit with the coaches. “The first experience I had with the coaches was a positive one. They were a great representation of what football will be like at MTA.”

Standing at 5’10, 210lbs, he has played with the Burlington Stampeders (OFC) and the Nelson Lords (Halton Secondary School Athletics Association). This past season, he won a Golden Horseshoe Bowl with the Lords and was the Bob Stacey True Grit award recipient.

With the new season fast approaching, Unwin is among the ranks of excited commits. He said, “I can’t wait to start in the fall.”

Advocating for football prospects one story at a time.
