Lancers philosophy respect

Hamilton lineman recently joins OUA team’s 2014 class.

Brett Martin will be moving cities to play at the CIS level.

Recently, the 6’2, 290 pound offensive lineman from Hamilton, Ontario committed to the Windsor Lancers for the 2014 OUA season.

“My first impressions of Windsor University were the tremendous sport and training facilities, particularly the new football stadium,” recalled Martin.  “The close proximity of the residence is most convenient.”

Moreover, the offensive lineman was impressed with the care and attention the Lancers coaching staff paid towards Martin’s academic goals as well as the football program.

“When I met Coach (Joe) D’Amore and Coach (Donnavan) Carter they were completely open to questions and concerns particularly in regard to my academic success,” explained Martin.  “I had the feeling that they truly cared about the players on and off the field.”

“The program’s on-field success has increased in the last three years. I feel that the Windsor football program can compete against any team in the province or country.”

Ultimately, Martin respected one thing about Lancers Head Coach Joe D’Amore.

“Coach D’Amore’s philosophy promotes transparency between coaches and players,” said the Hamilton lineman.  “You know where you stand as a player and I really respect that.”

Academically, Martin has found the perfect fit.

“My career goal is to become a Police Officer,” expressed Martin.  “The Criminology program will give me the tools to pursue this goal. Windsor being a border city will allow me the opportunity to pursue border security avenues as well.”

Martin arrives to Windsor after completing his high school career with the Bishop Ryan Celtic of the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic Athletic Association (HWCAA).  During his time there, he played at the right tackle and defensive tackle positions.
