Brantford offensive lineman becomes first AUS recruit

Following on the heels of early commitments from three conferences, the AUS has followed suit.  As a result, one team in the conference has landed their first recruit.

The Saint Mary’s Huskies have landed Dalton Laughlin.  The 6’5, 320 pound offensive lineman from Brantford, Ontario was impressed by the AUS teams’ active pursuit of him and felt that the Halifax, Nova Scotia campus was perfect for him to pursue his academic and gridiron pursuits.

“I committed because I felt Saint Mary`s would be a great fit for me for both school and football,” explained Laughlin of the decision.  “They also did a great job in the recruiting process.”

“They made me want to play for them. Lastly, I feel like I made the right choice and am looking forward to help the football program anyway I can.”

The Ontario offensive lineman will join the Huskies after completing his second season with the Hamilton Hurricanes of the Ontario Football Conference of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL).   Previous to the Hurricanes, Laughlin has suited up for his high school team, Pauline Johnson Thunderbirds of the Brant County Secondary Schools Athletic Association (BCSSAA) and the Brantford Bisons football organization. Moreover, he represented his home province as a member of Team Ontario West at the 2011 Football Canada Cup in Lethbridge, Alberta.

Huskies Head Coach Perry Marchese said the Huskies are thrilled about landing their first recruit and are looking forward to his future contributions to the team.

“We are extremely happy to have Dalton join our football family at Saint Mary’s,” commented Marchese.  “He is a great addition to the offensive line unit.”
