Niagara’s top QB commits to Guelph

It’s a rare thing for a championship football team not to have good quarterback play.  So it should be no surprise that Niagara’s high school football coaches voted St. Paul’s Evan Murdza the AAAA All Conference QB.  At St Paul’s Murdza directed a prolific pass-oriented spread offense.  The Patriots won the Niagara league, the SOSSA championship and defeated Brampton Notre Dame in a Golden Horseshoe semi-final before falling to Nelson in the Bowl game.

Murdza, at 6’2″ 165lbs, was described to me by a long-time Niagara football observer as “an unbelievable athlete with great speed and pocket presence”.  In addition to the captaining his high school gridiron team, Murdza has refined his passing skills playing touch football in men’s leagues, both summer and winter.  He has also played in tournaments throughout Ontario and been named tourney MVP twice.

When Evan Murdza came up to Guelph from Niagara-on-the-Lake for a campus visit I doubt he needed a guide for the campus tour.  Both his parents are University of Guelph graduates.
