Training camp 2014 kickoff meeting

Training camp 2014 kickoff meeting

Yesterday the full Gryphon football team gathered for meetings, fittings and other preparation for the 2014 OUA football season. Training camp practices began this morning with a 4-hour “power practice”.

Take a closer look. Farquharson looks to be in fantastic shape, plus bigger & stronger than ever been before. This pic only confirms what I had been hearing for months about the hard work Farquharson had been putting in and the results he was realizing. A 1,000-yard season is a realistic goal for Farquharson. That is one of the season goals I have set in my mind. I think he can do it within an offense that rushes for 2,000 and passes for 2,000. Those are lofty goals but they are goals that I would like to see reached.

Rob Maver gets high praise from the Calgary Sun and his head coach for his performance versus the Ticats on Saturday at Ron Joyce Stadium. In particular, his punt in the closing minutes that pinned the Ticats at their own ten.

“That was a big punt — no question about it — but Rob has a knack for doing that,” Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel said. “And that’s why he’s an all-star punter.”

A two-time CFL All Star in fact.
