Laurier offers challenge for commit

Golden Hawks add an out-of-province commit to their 2018 class.

Austin Lymer, a receiver from St, Francis High School, doesn’t want to take the easy route when he joins the Sir Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks.

By Mr. Hillaby.

“Laurier provides a challenging academic curriculum,” said Lymer, who is taking communication studies and management. “The school also provides me with the most opportunity to grow as a student-athlete. The coaching staff at Laurier brings great energy to the field and I find their style of offense to be very exciting.”

Lymer, who is 5’11, 185lbs, has been playing football since 2011 where he began his career with the Calgary Cowboys in his hometown of Calgary, Alberta. He was a member of the team until 2017. He also played for his high school team, the St. Francis Browns (CHSAA), since 2015. In 2014, he was on the Calgary Selects and the following year he was on Team South at the Alberta Bantam Bowl.

In 2013, Lymer won a Division 1 city and bantam provincial championship. The following year, he helped the Selects win a championship and he was a Division 2 city and provincial championship. He helped Team South capture the 2015 Bantam Bowl. In 2016, he won a midget city championship and a Division 1 city and high school provincial championship. Last year he won another midget city and high school city championship.

Along with several championships, Lymer was named as an Alberta Top 100 in 2016 and 2017. He was also a bantam all-star.
