OVFL: MTW ready to take league by force

The Metro Toronto Wildcats are ready for the 2013 season. As one of the most celebrated teams in the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), the Wildcats are looking to improve on last year’s seventh place finish and a 6-2 record.  

This year the Wildcats will be without star quarterback Nick Stamatis who has moved on to the next level and will be playing for York University next season. His 167.4 passer rating listed him as the second best quarterback in the league. His backup Brett Stein will most likely be the starting quarterback for the season opener. Stein plays for Forest Collegiate during the school year and is the all-time leading passer in the school’s history.

The Wildcats will also be seeing wide receiver Trivel Pinto move up from the Junior Varsity squad this season. Last year Pinto led the league in total yards with 1008 and eight touchdowns. He will be one of the offensive players to watch this season.

Although the Wildcat’s offense has always been fairly strong, their defense has not always been as good. They were ranked 18th in the OVFL last year and will need to improve their numbers in order to finish higher in the standings.

The season kicks off this Saturday at Birchmount Stadium, as the Wildcats take on Oshawa at 6:00PM. The Wildcats will be exciting to watch as this year’s team features some of the best varsity players, not only in the Toronto area, but from Canada as a whole.
