Nova Scotia recruit finds “perfect fit” with Gryphons (VIDEO)

Halifax quarterback joins OUA team’s 2015 class.

David Luke is moving to another province to begin his CIS career.

Recently, the 6’3, 195 pound quarterback from Halifax, Nova Scotia committed to the Guelph Gryphons.  Luke will join the team for the 2015 OUA season.

Overall, the pivot’s decision came down to one major factor.

“Guelph is the perfect fit for me as both a student and a football player,” offered Luke of his decision. “The engineering program gives me an opportunity to pursue my ambitions academically, while the football program does the same for my goals as an athlete.”

“The coaching staff immediately stood out to me for the obvious care they took in building relationships with the players and I felt welcomed right away. I am very excited to play for a program enriched with so much passion for the game and to do what I can to contribute to the success of the team.”

This past season, Luke finished his high school career with Citadel Phoenix of the Nova Scotia Student Federation Football League (NSSAFFL). In 2014, the Phoenix won the NSSAFFL Provincial Tier 1 Championship.

In addition to the Phoenix, Luke also suited up for the midget Halifax Argos of the Nova Scotia Indoor Spring League (NSISL).
