Hart grew up in Napanee, Ontario. It has a population of around 16,000 people, a far cry from Toronto’s 2.732 million residents. It probably won’t take long for Hart to feel comfortable in his new home, however. “I chose to commit to York University because of the welcoming environment and I saw that I could really make an impact on the team in a short time,” Hart said.

“I also liked how the program’s future looks,” he added. “I think that the coaching staff are very down-to-earth, and I feel I can learn a lot from them.”

Hart played his first year of football with the Loyalist Mavericks (TIMFL). He spent three years with the Napanee Golden Hawks (KASSAA) and two with the Kingston Grenadiers (OVFL). He also spent one season with Football North St. Joe’s. In grade 10 and 11, Hart participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. He was rookie of the year with the Grenadiers in grade 9 and was defensive MVP for the Hawks in grade 10.

The 6’3, 215lbs middle linebacker is interested in taking business.
