Lancers welcome two high school students to their team.

For offensive lineman Nathan Sanvido from St. James Catholic High School and wide receiver Trevor Simms from Medway High School, the only place they wanted to be was with the University of Windsor Lancers.

Nothing in football is given, and Nathan Sanvido is ready to prove his worth to the Lancers. “They give me an opportunity to fight and compete for a job,” Sanvido said. “I chose Windsor because I love the city. They have a good coaching staff with a very talented roster that’s on the rise! They (also) have a great facility.”

During his recruitment, Sanvido spoke with Coach Beardy. “He’s been awesome,” Sanvido said. “He has given me loads of information and what to expect. He told me about the other coaches and they seem very good!”

At a towering 6’6, 360lbs, Sanvido has spent five years with the St. James Lions (D10) in his hometown of Guelph, Ontario. He has won a D10 championship in basketball and was an all-star in football.

“I am just really excited to come in and compete with a good group of guys and win games,” Sanvido said, who is interested in taking history.

When Trevor Simms joins the Lancers, he knows he will be in good hands. “I chose to commit to Windsor because I like the campus and I feel like it was the best place for me to be,” he said. “The coaches did an amazing job recruiting me. It truly feels like they care for all of their players on and off the field.”

Simms, who is 6’5, 195lbs, comes from London, Ontario, where he was a member of the Medway Cowboys (Thames Valley Regional Athletics) and the Forest City Thunderbirds. His career has spanned over 12 years and he is a two-time city all-star.

“I’m excited to be a Lancer,” the potential psychology student said. “I can’t wait to show what I can do in the fall.”
