Last spring, Dillon participated in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) as a member of Team West and that is where his relationship with the Golden Hawks began.

“I first got in touch with them through the OPC, where Coach [Joe] Wade was my Receivers Coach,” recalled Dillon.  “After that, it was talking back and forth between Coach Wade, Coach [Dwayne] Cameron and myself.”

“I went on my visit and a few weeks after that made my decision.”

Ultimately, there were a few things Golden Hawks program that appealed to the offensive standout.

“I decided mainly on Laurier because of all of the recruiting visits I had taken,” explained Dillon. “Laurier’s campus gave me the best feeling and this is where I could see myself spending the next four years.”

“The coaching staff made me feel welcome and comfortable, just like family.”
