Five years ago I loved Matt Toppan’s high school highlights. I couldn’t believe Toppan wasn’t a higher profile recruit than he was. Toppan came out of a solid program at Oakville Holy Trinity. He came in “under the radar” and a little undersized but he developed over his five years at Guelph into an outstanding player. He worked extremely hard to earn his way into the starting lineup where his athleticism shone through. The fact Toppan has earned 1st Team OUA All Star honours the past two years indicates that rival coaches also like his film.
Five years later I loved watching Toppan’s Gryphon highlights as much as his HS ones. Loved seeing that TD vs Western right off the bat. Toppan’s highlights have clearly also aroused some interest among multiple CFL teams as Toppan has been invited to the upcoming CFL combines. He will work out as a potential Fullback/Tight End.
