Proven winner excited to join Windsor Lancers

Windsor adds a late edition to their Class of 2017.

Logan Demers, an offensive lineman from Almonte District High School, knows what it means to be apart of a championship team, he has done it four times, and he hopes to take his winning ways to his new team, the Windsor Lancers.

Demers spent his five-year high school career with the Almonte Thunderbolts (Lanark County Interschool Athletic Association). He won a league championship in four straight years after his grade nine season. His positional coach knows how to win as well.

“Their o-line coach also played for the Ottawa RedBlacks last year. I am looking forward to being coached by him,” Demers said. The RedBlacks won the 2016 Grey Cup.

It was more than just a winning staff that drew Demers in. He said that from the coaches he has talked to, they seem very excited and passionate about football, which was a reason why he signed there. “I’ve heard very positive things about the school,” he add. “The coaches are also going to be committing more to football, which is very exciting.”

Peter Fraser, the Lancers’ defensive coordinator, has a mutual feeling of excitement over his team’s latest commit. “We are very excited to add another play from the Ottawa area to our 2017 recruiting class. Logan will bring size and a great work ethic to our o-line group,” he said.

He added that, “We expect him to develop into a great player working with Coach Church and assistant o-line coach, Randy Beardy.”

The hulking 6’4, 400lbs guard is interested in studying history. In his career, he has played for the West Carleton Wolverines (National Capital Amateur Football Association), the Nepean Eagles (NCAFA), the Myers Riders (NCAFA/OVFL) and the Ottawa Sooners (CJFL). He is from Almonte, Ontario.
