Local linebacker first recruit for Yates Cup champs 2014 class

The Yates Cup Champions have netted their first player for their 2014 recruitment class and he is a local standout.

Santino Gallo has committed to the McMaster Marauders. For the 295 pound outside linebacker from Hamilton, Ontario, the reasons were quite simple as to why he felt the Marauders were the right team.

“I chose Mac because of it being in my hometown of Hamilton and its academic status, which is ranked Top 100 in the world,” explained Gallo.  “Also, the recent major success of the program is a reason that I chose Mac as well.”

“Mac has also been very persistent on their recruiting of me.”

Among the teams the linebacker has suited up for during his career include Hamilton Hurricanes of the Ontario Football Conference, Hamilton Ironmen of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) and his high school team St. Thomas More Knights of the Hamilton Wentworth Catholic Athletic Association (HWCAA).

This past summer, Gallo helped the Hurricanes win the OFC league championship.
