Windsor Lancers address all sides of the ball with 3 commits

Windsor adds CJFLer and two high school commits to their Class of 2018.

Coming into a rebuild can be a bit of a challenge, but running back David Adeniran from North Park Collegiate and defensive back Kyle Roberts from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School are nothing but excited to join the Windsor Lancers.

Kicker Griffin Fenton from Belle River High School will also be joining the Lancers.

David Adeniran

Ready to make a difference, David Adeniran said, “They are in a rebuilding stage, which I’m very excited to be apart of. The coaches are very knowledgeable, focused and enthusiastic about football.”

Interested in computer science, Adeniran added that what appealed to him was the academic support the school has for their student-athletes.

Back in 20108, in his first ever season of contact football, Adeniran and his team won the championship. He was also named rookie of the year. He received multiple MVP recognitions throughout his high school career with the North Park Collegiate Trojans (Brant Country Secondary School Athletic Association). In 2014, his final year of playing with the Brantford Bisons (OFC), he was named as team MVP. In his first year with the Hamilton Hurricanes (CJFL) in 2016, he won the CJFL championship.

The 5’7, 170lbs product of Brantford, Ontario, has been playing football for eight years.

Kyle Roberts

If Kyle Roberts wanted to see what he could gain from going to Windsor, he didn’t have to look far. “Throughout my life, I have been surrounded by many Windsor alumni who have all turned out very successful and have only great things to say about the school,” Roberts said. “I want to become apart of the Lancer family and be apart of all the great things coming for them.”

The Lancers coaching staff have been hard at work recruiting this season and recruits have taken notice. “All the coaches have been extremely helpful and seems like they will do anything to help you succeed,” Roberts said. “The staff is wonderful from what I’ve experienced.”

Roberts, who is 6’3, 180lbs, started his career with the London Jr. Mustangs (OPFL) before spending five years with the St. Thomas Aquinas Flames (Thames Valley Regional Athletics). Interested in business marketing, he calls London, Ontario, home.

Not willing to give up on his dreams, Roberts said, “The inspiration of both my family and the Parent family have drove me to keep achieving and to never stop working for something you love.”

Griffin Fenton

Griffin Fenton is coming to Windsor from his hometown of Belle River, Ontario, which is around forty minutes from the city. He is 6’2, 155lbs and kicked and punted for the Belle River Nobels (Windsor Essex County Secondary School Athletic Association).
