Niagara Falls connections helping the Gryphs

From the Niagara Falls Review:

After three straight wins, the Guelph Gryphons have climbed to second place in the Ontario University Athletics football standings.

Their success can be partially attributed to a Niagara Falls connection that continues to pay off for the squad.


Third-year science student Rob Farquharson is the third leading rusher in the country. The Stamford Collegiate grad is averaging 102.5 yards per game after the Gryphons first four games. Farquharson has rushed 70 times for 5.9 yards per carry. His five touchdowns are fourth in Canadian Interuniversity Sports.

His best game was Sept. 15 in a 47-17 win over Waterloo. Farquharson racked up 165 yards on 18 carries and two touchdowns to earn the Gryphon Male Athlete of the Week. It was his second consecutive game with more than 100 yards rushing.

Defensively, John Rush has developed into one of the top players in the CIS. The six-foot-one, 223-pound linebacker is second in the country with 33 tackles. Rush, a Saint Michael Catholic High School grad, is ninth with 3.5 sacks.

Michael Fortino, a fifth-year Saint Michael grad, has four catches for 106 yards and two touchdowns this season. He’s also rushed three times for 19 yards.

Saint Paul has six graduates on the team.
