Combine some of Ontario’s best training facilities with full-time elite coaches. You’ve got a winning play on the football field that’s been associated with the College since 1829. With grit and determination, the Blues capped an undefeated season in 2014 with their second consecutive Conference of Independent Schools Athletic Association (CISAA) championship.
The commitment by the school and its students to the sport has paid off.
The varsity and junior varsity’s eight full-time coaches have all played at the collegiate level. The junior varsity team is coached by Mario Sturino, a former quarterback for the University of Toronto Varsity Blues and 1993 Vanier Cup recipient. The varsity team’s head coach is Dave Brown, a former player at Queen’s University.
Boys at the varsity level commit to practices five days a week. It’s no coincidence so many of them have graduated on to play football in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport and National Collegiate Athletic Association.
