Matthew Dahmer started playing house league football with Twin Cities in 2007.

Since then he has played for the rep Twin Citites Predators in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) and the Hamilton Hurricanes in the spring of 2012.

Since entering high school, the quarterback has played with the Cameron Heights Gaels. He was also a participant in the Twin Cities high school All-Star game last year.

Moreover, 2014 also brought the Predator to the junior varsity Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC).

“I like to play as much football as I can,” said Matthew. “The OPC was one of my favourite football experiences because of the level of commitment that everyone else has and the very high talent requirements.”


During the offseason he does anything and everything that can help, such as weight lifting, footwork, chalk talk, film, “mirror drills” and conditioning.

“I watch as much football as I can ad try to notice the differences between professional football players and myself,” added the quarterback.

On the field, his idol is Tyler Varga. Varga graduated from Matthew’s high school before playing for an Ivy League school and moving onto the NFL.

“He is a workhorse of a man and doesn’t know how to give up,” comments Matthew on the school’s legend.

The Predator loves football because it is the greatest team sport.

“I’ve met so many people and made new friendships that will last a lifetime,” explained Matthew. “I like how football is as much mental as it is physical.”

“It tests your mind and body and pushes you to your limits.”
