Andy McFalls decided to try out for his high school football team, the Meadowvale Falcons, in 2013, but prior to that baseball was his preferred sport.

During his first year he earned a position on the offensive line starting at left tackle on the junior team.

After Andy’s second year of playing junior football, he was awarded Lineman of the Year.

On both the junior and senior teams throughout his career he started every game as a left tackle.

Moreover, the Falcon also plays for the Mississauga Warriors in the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

This past year he also made Team Ontario and played at the Spalding Cup in Montreal, where he played right guard and the team won a bronze medal.

“My primary goal for the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) is to become a more experienced football player,” said Andy. “Playing against and being coached by the best is a positive challenge and the formula to success.”

The left tackle is also using the OPC to help gain exposure.

“Another goal of mine is to get ranked on the #CFC100,” added Andy.

During the offseason he works out, reviews tape, participate in various combines and meets with his coaches on a regular basis.

He also participates in other sports such as baseball, cricket, basketball and curling to stay active.

Andy’s football role model is his offensive line coach, Lee Becker, because both on and off the field he has been nothing but a positive influence.

“He has pushed me beyond my limits during practices and he has taught me just about everything I know about football,” commented the Falcon.

Becker instils a competitive drive within myself that makes Andy perform his best during games, and he pushes him to become a better person as well.

“I am very lucky to have his experience and knowledge in my life, whether that be in the classroom or on the field,” commented Andy.

The Falcon sees football as being about family.

Since he started playing, the teams he has played on have become his second family, beginning with his teammates.

“You always know that they have your back, whether this be on or off the field,” said Andy, “we are always pushing a friendly competition that motivates each other.”
