Pair of provincial recruits sign with McMaster (VIDEO)

McMaster Marauders have announced the additions of both Nolan Putt and Jakub Szott to their football program.

Both recruits will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

“We are excited to add Jakub and Nolan to our 2016 recruiting class,” commented Marauders Head Coach Stefan Ptaszek.  “We are anticipating that both of them will compete for large roles on the field early in their careers at McMaster. “

“Both Jakub and Nolan will also be positive additions to our locker room and campus. I speak for all of our coaches when I say that we are really looking forward to working with these two young men.”

During his career, the 6’2, 165 pound defensive back from Caledonia, Ontario has played for Assumption Lions of the Brantford County Secondary School Athletic Association (BCSSAA) and Hamilton Hurricanes of the Ontario Football Conference.

Overall, there were several factors that played significant roles in Putt’s decision to opt for the Marauders.

“As I was brought up playing Hamilton football, it really swayed my decision to a university based in Hamilton, which so happens to be McMaster,” explained the defensive back of his commitment.  “Academically speaking, I was looking for a university that was known for its academics and could provide me with one of the best business degrees out there, and yet again McMaster had it.”

“I was also attracted to McMaster on the bases of their defensive backs who I have worked with before. I believe McMaster’s defensive back core will become one of the best with the current players and new recruits that will contribute greatly to the program. Another huge factor is the opportunity that the McMaster football team can give to a first year player, specifically a defensive back. I feel as if there is an equal opportunity to be a starter in the McMaster defensive back core. Although, whether or not I am a first year starter is not my top priority as I enter the OUA. I was also looking at an opportunity to play against my brothers in the OUA. Which one is currently at the University of Toronto and the other at the University of Windsor.”
