The 6’3, 180 pound wide receiver from Toronto, Ontario comes to the Lancers after completing his career with Christ the King Jaguars of the Halton Secondary School Athletic Association (HSSAA).  Additionally, Palma suited up for North Halton Crimson Tide of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

“Dondre is another player with great length and athleticism,” commented Lancers Head Coach Joe D’Amore.  “We were looking to upgrade our wide receiver position with some size and speed and Dondre did just that for us.”

“He had one of the best 40 times at a recent combine and we think he can contribute early here with us.”

For his part, Palma felt at ease with the Windsor, Ontario campus for a couple of key reasons.

“I committed to Windsor because I feel that this school is the best fit for me,” elaborated Palma.  “I have talked to coaches from Western, Queens, York and Windsor sounded the most promising not only on the field but off the field.”

“I really do like how they have the student athletes really engaged in their school work like having study hall, tutors and this really makes me feel secure an set up for success on and off the field.”

The 6’0, 175 pound defensive back from London, Ontario recently completed his high school career with Saunders Sabres of the Thames Valley Regional Athletic Association (TVRAA).

“Bryton is a nice looking athlete who has length and good top end speed,” assessed D’Amore. “We are excited to get him in the weight room and develop hi strength.”

“He will begin his career at field corner and we will slowly transition him to boundary.”

Ultimately, there were two reasons why Huggins chose the Lancers.

“One being that they really emphasized the point that you are a student athlete and the student part always comes first,” explained Huggins.  “This affected my decision because the most important thing is that I leave with a quality education.”

“The second reason is they have a great football program at Windsor that has been getting better over the years and is only going to get better.”
