Balance. It’s a hard thing to achieve sometimes. But Spencer Smyth found that Western offered him the best chance at balance. “I chose to commit to Western because I felt it has the perfect combination of outstanding academics and a championship caliber team and coaches,” he said.

“The coaching staff is great, and it is shown through how they continuously have all-OUA and all Canadian players,” the Canada Prep Raider added.

Coming from Dundas, Ontario, the 6’2, 225lbs football player has suited up with the Hamilton Varsity Tiger-Cats (OFC), Team Ontario and Team Canada. “I have also had the pleasure of being coached by a number of Western’s coaches throughout my playing career through Team Ontario and I am very exited for next season,” Smyth said.

When he reaches university, Smyth will be studying business management with a specialization in economics.

Smyth will be joining his teammate, Austin Miller, in the Mustangs’ locker room. The product of Morpeth, Ontario, which is south-west of London, has family connections with his new school. “A lot of my family have also graduated from Western so I wanted to be somewhere where my family could come out to the games and see and hear their name being called on the field,” he said.

Miller was also impressed with the team’s coaching staff, who he described as nothing short of perfect. “They have supported me and my family and have made us feel like part of their family already, along with the tremendous wealth of knowledge theses coaches know about the game and technique at their positions,” he said.

The 6’3, 265lbs Raider added that he chose Western because he believes the school has the best academic program to suit his needs. He is interested in majoring in criminology and minoring in a historical field while possibly learning a new language.

During his career, he has played with the Chatham Kent Cougars (OFC), the Ursuline College Chatham Essex Ravens (Lambton Kent Secondary School Athletic Association) and Team Ontario. Miller will be hungry for a championship when he enters university, having never won one in high school. He added that his max bench press is 370lbs with a 650lbs squat. He can also complete the 40-yard dash in 4.91 seconds.
