Recruit “plans on making an early impact” at Guelph

Defensive lineman joins OUA team’s 2016 class

Dewan Soyer had chosen where he will spend the CIS leg of his gridiron career.

Recently, the 6’1, 280 pound defensive lineman (tackle) committed to the Guelph Gryphons.  Soyer will join the team for the 2016 OUA season.

Overall, the OUA school had the perfect academic and gridiron combination he was seeking.

“The reason why I chose Guelph, was their unbelievable academic support, unlimited resources and of course the great football program,” elaborated Soyer.  “Out of all the schools I spoke to, Guelph was the one I felt most at home.”

“There was a great connection with the head coach and defensive coach. They live by a strict policy “school first then football” , which is very important. They showed much honestly on where the depth chart lies and where i would be able to contribute . Academically, they offer the program that i wanted and it seemed like a no brainer.”
