Gryphons.ca’s story – 11 Gryphons Recognized as OUA All-Stars for 2015 Season
The OUA press release: OUA Announces 2015 Football First and Second-Team All-Stars
My Thoughts: Another bumper crop of Gryphons named to the OUA’s All Star team. It’s a reflection of the talent that has been recruited, the coaching and development of the players and the hard work that players are putting in. If there is one surprise it is that running back Johnny Augustine wasn’t included. That is largely because of the strange decision to drop a second RB position and add a fullback to the offensive team. I call that strange because fullback tends to be just a part-time position in many OUA offenses. It is nice that fullbacks are recognized but it is a shame that it happens at the expense of some players who make a much bigger impact on the game.
