Waterloo Warriors best fit for commit

Waterloo adds a local commit to their Class of 2018.

When it came to choosing a university, Jake Surdykowski, a linebacker from Sir John A. MacDonald High School, didn’t have to look any further than the hometown University of Waterloo Warriors.

“I thought Waterloo would be the place that would make me the best player I can be,” Surdykowski said. “I feel it’s the university that will treat me the best and it’s also local, which is a great benefit.”

A product of Waterloo, Ontario, Surdykowski has seen the growth of the Warriors firsthand. “I think Waterloo’s coaching staff are the people that know how to build a winning program. Going from 0-8 to 4-4 in the span of one year really tells you a lot about what a coaching staff is able to do.”

Surdykowski, who is 6’1, 210lbs, has been playing football for 11 years. From the ages of 8 to 13, he played with the Twin City Warhawks (Waterloo Region Minor Football). When he turned 11, he was apart of the Twin City Predators until he was 14. He suited up for the Sir John A. MacDonald Highlanders (WCSSAA) throughout his high school career. In 2016, he won an OVFL championship with the Cambridge Lions. He also played on the 2017 edition of Team Ontario at the International Bowl.

He is interested in taking chemistry or kinesiology.
