Varsity Blues family feel attracts 3

Toronto adds two Ontario commits and one out-of-province commit to their 2019 class.

When it came down to it, wide receiver Nigel LeGood from LaSalle High School and fullback Owen Mitchell from London South Collegiate Institute knew that the University of Toronto Varsity Blues was where they belonged.

Defensive end Aidan Wold from Mt. Douglas Secondary School will also be joining the Varsity Blues.

Nigel LeGood

Nigel LeGood won’t be the only person sporting the name “LeGood” on the Varsity Blues. “My older brother, Grant, is currently first-year playing receiver at U of T,” LeGood said, adding that, “I chose the University of Toronto because of the welcoming atmosphere around the coaches and team.”

It will be a homecoming for LeGood, who was born and raised in Toronto. At the age of nine, he and his family moved to Kingston. “I really enjoy the campus and the city,” LeGood said of Toronto. “It is the place that I want to pursue my academic and athletic goals.”

LeGood, who is interested in kinesiology or life sciences, spent the past three years playing with the Kingston Grenadiers (OPFL). He was the team’s offensive MVP last season.

Owen Mitchell

Leaving his hometown of London, Ontario, behind, Owen Mitchell is ready for all that Toronto has to offer. “I committed to Toronto because of the amazing coaching staff, the overall family feeling they have there and the facilities are the best I’ve ever seen,” he said. “Toronto’s coaching staff is wonderful. They’re building something special there and I’m glad to be a part of it.”

Mitchell is interested in criminology.

Standing at 6’1, 200lbs, Mitchell has spent the last four years playing with both the London South Lions (TVRA) and the Forest City Thunderbirds (OFC). He helped the Lions win a TVRAA and WOSSA championship in 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2016, he and the Lions also won an OFSAA Bowl.

Aidan Wold

Aidan Wold spent his high school career with the Mt. Douglas Rams (BCSSFA) where he played as a defensive end and running back. Standing at 6’2, 170lbs, he is from Victoria, BC. He was also a member of the Rams’ track and field team.
