Mac adds two versatile commits

McMaster welcomes two local commits to their 2019 class.

There’s no place like home for athlete Hunter Potvin and receiver Dima Ignjatovic from Westdale High School and they will be staying home for a few more years after signing with the McMaster Marauders.

Hunter Potvin of Hamilton, Ontario, knows what it’s like to grow up in a university town. “I chose McMaster because it’s the hometown university. I loved the atmosphere and campus and the opportunity to play football for such a great city. Plus, it’s one of the best schools in all of Canada,” he said.

“The coaching staff is great,” he added. “Coach Ptaszek is a great coach and will bring the juice back to McMaster. Coach Parkes was also a huge help and a great guy to be around. Both of these guys and the rest of the coaching staff are great, and they were big factors on why I chose Mac.”

The towering 6’7, 210lbs athlete primarily is a quarterback. He spent five years with the Westdale Warriors (HWIAC). The future history student was an offensive MVP in 2018 and a team captain from 2015 to 2018.

When Potvin reaches McMaster, he has one goal in mind: “McMaster is a great school and I’m super excited to be with the guys and put in the hard work to bring back the Vanier Cup to McMaster!”




Dima Ignjatovic

Dima Ignjatovic is from Hamilton where he played with both the Warriors’ football and soccer teams. Standing at 5’1, 185lbs, he has a time of 4.7 seconds in the 40-yard dash. In grade 10 he played junior volleyball and won a SOSSA championship in tennis. He also won a 2017 city championship on the junior water polo team and he played with the junior basketball team that year.
