“Saint Mary’s is a highly regarded University and their programs fit my requirements exactly. Their Business Program is one of the best in the Maritimes and the professors I have spoken to have been nothing but fantastic.”

“What impresses me most is their unwavering support for student athletics and their recognition of the value of sport in education. Sir John A shared this philosophy and insisted their students produce excellent academic results if they were to receive the honor of playing on their team. The two complemented each other so good marks produced good results on the field.”

“The Highlights of my football experience thus far has been winning the NSSAF Tier One Championships, selection to the Nova Scotia Provincial Team, competing In the Canada Cup in Saskatoon and being selected as a NSSAF Division 1 All Star Linebacker. This year I was able to play both sides in High School as a Linebacker and a Center which was very rewarding.”

“Of course my biggest highlight has been my recent commitment to Saint Mary’s. I was very humbled when Coach Tufford asked me to join the Huskies. Coach Tufford and his team have been very welcoming while making it very clear of what is expected of a Saint Mary’s Husky Football Player.”

“Through hard work and dedication I am looking forward to playing my part in helping this team rise to the top and win a Vanier Cup.”
