Matt Baron has seen championships with the Peterborough Wolverines and St. Mary’s, and now hopes to succeed at the Ontario Prospect Challenge this fall. Although he has only been playing football for three years, Baron has quickly excelled at the sport.

“It is one of the best recruitment programs to get exposure,” Says Baron.

Baron is no stranger to football camps as he has attended camps in the Ottawa area where he learned the importance of learning from great coaches. During his time at St. Mary, Baron was awarded the Defensive Player of the year award.

Baron hopes to “go all the way” and make the final roster for the OPC All-Star game.

Tryouts (Phase 1) for the Ontario Prospect Challenge begin September 21st.  A ‘one-time’ tryout fee allows you to compete in as many tryouts as you wish.   CLICK HERE for registration information.
