Hyack Banner 2011



This quote is from Andrew Luck, and all-pro QB with the Indianapolis Colts and a Stanford Graduate, on the connection between school and football: "You could figure out how to do both and do it to the best of your ability. ... I thought football helped me so much with my time management. I thought football helped me in school. If I didn't have football, I don't think I would have done as well in school or managed my time better. I think it teaches you that time is valuable."

Congratulations to tight end Dylan Musgrove and linebacker Hakan Williams, who will become the next Hyacks to play college football at the CIS level. Both players have committed to the University of Windsor, and will become the 29th and 30th NWSS graduates in the past 12 years to earn football scholarships in University. They will also join fellow Hyack alum, QB Tommy Robertson (Grad 2014) on the Windsor roster.


6'2", 200LBS, RECEIVER


Dylan is a 5-year Hyack, who finished his career in outstanding fashion, on and off the field. He recorded 15 receptions for 321 yards and 3 TDs. He was also named the G&F Financial Coaches Award winner for his leadership, selflessness and work ethic. Dylan plans to enrol in the Nursing program at Windsor, with a major in health sciences.


"I chose Windsor because it was a great fit for me in the classroom, on the field and in the locker room," said Musgrove. "After talking to the coaches and players on my visit, I felt at home. Big thanks to the Hyack Football program and the coaching staff for preparing me for this big step in my football career and life in general." 


According to Lancers' head coach, Joe D'Amore, "Dylan is a quality WR/TE who has solid hands and plays very physical. We were looking to add a guy who can mix it up and play in tight. We think a year in our strength program will put him in that position."


"Dylan made a great contribution for us throughout his career at NWSS and I think he has the potential to do the same at Windsor." added NWSS head coach, Farhan Lalji. "His passion for the game is growing, and as a result he is just scratching the surface of how good he can be. He is a well-raised young man and has the character to do what is necessary to excel at the next level."




Hakan transferred to NWSS this past season with hopes of earning an opportunity to play college football, and his goal has been realized. He quickly earned a starting linebacker spot and finished 3rd on the team in tackles with 45 and 5 sacks, and also made an impact on special teams. Hakan chose Windsor over Saskatchewan and Waterloo, and plans to major in Business.


"Windsor was the right combination of academics and football for me, and having fellow Hyacks there was ultimately a factor," said Williams. "It's a place that can feel like home for the next five years. Thanks to my parents for being so supportive throughout this process, and to the Hyacks football program which has influenced me so greatly in such a short time."


"Hakan is a physical LB that plays very well sideline to sideline," added coach D'Amore. "He will compete for playing time on special teams early and he will grow into a solid WIL-linebacker."


"It took a great deal of effort and sacrifice for Hakan to make the move to NWSS for his senior year, so it thrills me to see him get the chance to play at the next level," said coach Lalji. "He's got great instincts for the game and a very good motor. He also just loves football and will do what it takes to make an impact at Windsor."



The two players above, along with Harper Sherman (U of Arizona) and Matthew Seymour (U of Ohio), aren't the only NWSS grads who will be pursuing their university education next fall. A number of others who will not be continuing with football, have been accepted into very prestigious academic institutions:


Marc MassicotteHas been accepted to the Biochemistry program at McGill University in Montreal. Marc missed most of his senior season due to an injury, but was always a hard worker who had a positive, infectious personality that will be missed.


Jonathan TomaltyHas been accepted to the Sauder School of Business at UBC. "Jono" was an 8-year Hyack, a tremendous leader and a two-way starter, who was driven to succeed in everything he did. He was also the recipient of the 2015 Sidoo Family Scholarship.


Mackenzie RatcliffeHas been accepted to the Science Faculty at UBC and will find out in June if he will be entered into the Engineering program. Mackenzie was named the Hyack Football Scholar-Athlete last fall. He has been with the Hyacks for 7 years and shared the starting QB spot this past year.


Many other graduating seniors will be attending various colleges and trades programs. The NWSS Football program is proud of the accomplishments of all of these young men.
