Lancers commit says ‘no way I could turn this opportunity down’

Lancers add a local commit to their team.

Jay Trojek, a wide receiver from St. Anne Catholic High School, has been hiding out with the Lambton College basketball team, but now he is returning to familiar waters after signing with the Windsor Lancers.

“As a college basketball player, the decision to transfer back into my high school sport of football was a tough one,” Trojek said. “The way the coaching staff approached my situation and treated me made the situation all that easier. I literally felt like there was no way I could ever turn this opportunity down.”

Trojek added that the “excellent recruiting and coaching staff” had “opened many doors for me and helped me with every little detail along the way. I was in conversation with other schools but none compared to this coaching staff.”

After spending a year in Sarnia, Ontario, Trojek will be moving back to Windsor, Ontario. He said what appealed to him about the Lancers was the chance to study and play in his hometown while being around family and friends. He added that the campus, academic success and the excellence the university has proven to provide each year also influenced him.

The 6’6, 205lbs former St. Anne Saint (Windsor Essex Country Schools Athletics) will be taking the liberal arts and professional studies program. In grade 11, he won the Wilson Division Championship. The following year, he was named to the Newman Division first-team, all-city all-star team.

“I’m excited to be back playing for my hometown team and transitioning from a basketball career back into what was originally a successful football career,” Trojek said.
