OFC JV: Toronto Jr. Argos ready for 2013 with new coach at helm (PREVIEW)

The Junior Varsity Toronto Jr. Argos are looking to continue their success in 2013. After a great 2012 season that included a fifth place finish and a playoff berth, Head Coach Derek McDonald will be taking over one of the best teams in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC).

“With the schedule and talent we have (this season), the playoffs are definitely in our sights,” says McDonald. “We look pretty solid top to bottom and are in a good position to match what the best teams in the league.”

However, McDonald knows that the season will be filled with many challenges. Teams such as the TC Predators and Burlington Stampeders have been dominating the league for many years. McDonald and the rest of the JV Jr. Argos are preparing in hopes of, “putting guys in a position to be successful.”

This year’s team consists of 80 percent first year players at this level, putting the JV program in a good position to build unto next season as well.

When asked about the players he expects to make large contributions on the field, McDonald replied, “Well, I could just pick names out of a hat. We have so many talented players this year that depending on how they play will really effect how our season goes. We have an agile offensive line and many offensive weapons.”

“We want to go out and show the league what we can do”, says McDonald. “We plan to stay prepared and not let teams sneak up on us”.

The 2013 JV Jr. Argo season will start this Sunday at 5:00PM at St. Michael’s College Field. They will be playing a new team in the OFC, the Vaughn Rebels.
