Landon O’Reilly has been playing football since he was five.

Moreover, Landon also participated in a tournament in Cleveland, Ohio in November 2015.

They Lion’s goal for this year’s Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) is to gain experience both playing and learning football.

“I hope to bring a positive attitude and help build a winning team,” said Landon.

During the offseason he uses his brother, Nathan, who also plays football as a training partner, and together they train, jog and do drills.

Their dad, who is retired from the military, runs really good drills with them when he is home from Afghanistan.

Landon also really likes soccer, swimming, dirt biking and just about anything active.

On the field, his role model is Michael Strahan because he had an amazing career as a defensive end, played in the Pro Bowl, is in the Hall of Fame and has had great success since retiring from the sport.

“I believe he would be a great person to aspire to be like,” added the Lion.

The running back loves football because it is a fast paced, high energy and he has met great friends.

“Football is an outlet for me,” commented Landon, “I love to be active.”
