Recently, the Guelph Gryphons announced the commitment of Greg Corfield to their football program.

Corfield, the 6’3, 315 pound offensive lineman (guard) from Niagara Falls, Ontario will join the team for the 2015 OUA season.

The offensive lineman has played for St. Paul Patriots of the Niagara Region High School Athletic Association (NRHSAA).  In eight games this past season, Corfield had 13 pancakes.

In addition to the Patriots, Corfield suited up for the Niagara Spears of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).  During the 2014 season, he registered 10 pancakes in 12 games.

Overall, there were numerous reasons he settled upon the Guelph, Ontario campus.

“I chose to go to the University of Guelph firstly because it is a great football team and has potential in the upcoming years,” explained Corfield of his decision.  “The players and coaches are great and very nice.”

“I also like the small town feel I got from the city of Guelph. The campus is remarkable and the food is awesome. Lastly, the facilities are clean and amazing. They have a ton of full time coaching staff that is dedicated to making you the best player you can be. This was a big factor because the coaches are able to meet with you more often because for the most part their main priority is the football team.”
