Toronto Argonauts Sign Former Huron Heights Warrior To Bolster O-Line

By: CFL Canadian Fooball League News

TORONTO — After signing Josh Bourke to a deal earlier in the day, the Toronto Argonauts have added another premier offensive lineman through free agency by signing former Saskatchewan Roughrider Corey Watman.

A regular starter on the Riders’ O-line, Watman is capable of playing multiple positions on the offensive front including centre. The 26-year-old is one of just a few impactful ratio-breakers at his position in this year’s free agent class and is among the top-ranked O-linemen outside of the veteran Josh Bourke.

“Corey is a local Toronto player from Newmarket’s Huron Heights Secondary School that played multiple positions in Saskatchewan,” said Argos GM Jim Barker. “He’s a young centre who we expect to come in and compete right away, and become a mainstay on our offensive line.”

QB Grant leads dominant Huron Heights Warriors to Simcoe Bowl victory

By: John Cudmore

Sault Ste. Marie’s Superior Heights Steel Hawks discovered there is nothing fancy about the Warriors’ game other than its ability to crush all in its way. The Hawks absorbed a 48-0 drubbing at the hands of the powerful Newmarket school in the Simcoe Bowl played Tuesday at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton. Quarterback Colin Grant ran the Warriors’ option-oriented offence to perfection, scoring three touchdowns on short runs and passing for two more as the Warriors hammered out an impressive victory over the Northern Ontario champions.

“Our guys came out rolling and kept rolling,” said Warriors head coach Al Rover. “We were definitely more prepared for them than they were for us.
Rover doled out special praise to defensive coordinator Josh Scott, whose unit controlled the Steel Hawks all day. “He really had them figured out,” said Rover.

Grant ran for touchdown scores of two yards and one yard in the first quarter and connected with Mike Strumos on a 40-yard pass-and-run in the second as Huron Heights rolled to a 21-0 lead by halftime. It was well beyond game-over by that point.

Grant, on a seven-yard-run, Gregg Anderson, Skyler McMurtry and Zach Needler on a 13-yard pass reception, had the other touchdowns for the Warriors.

Steelhawks lost big at OFSAA

By: Mike Verdone


As dominant as the Superior Heights Steelhawks football team had been this season, they were on the wrong side of the scoreboard at the Simcoe Bowl Tuesday morning.

The Hawks failed to score a point against the Huron Heights Warriors, losing 48-0 to the Newmarket club at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) bowl game that was played at Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton.

The Steelhawks powerful running game was stymied by the Warriors formidable defence.

And the outstanding defence that led the Hawks to their third straight city championship this year and second Northern Ontario Secondary Schools Association (NOSSA) title , couldn’t handle the Warriors running game.

“It was a tough loss … They definitely pushed us around,” said Hawks quarterback Noah Griggs, who completed five of 17 passes for 84 yards, and threw three interceptions.

The Warriors dominated on the line of scrimmage, on the scoreboard and in virtually every other category. Huron Heights had 26 first downs in the game to eight by the Hawks.They rushed for 327 yards on 41 carries, compared to just 61 yards on 17 touches for the Steelhawks.

“The running game just wasn’t working,” Grigg said. The Hawks offence put up a combined total of 141 yards, while the Warriors topped out at 419 yards. “They were able to push us around for four quarters,” said head coach Seth Cond. “Basically, what we had been doing to opponents for the latter part of the season…

Dominating offence the factor in Huron Warrior’s YRAA championship win

By: Jake Courtepatte

The Huron Heights Warriors entered Saturday’s YRAA football championship as the overwhelming favourite. That is not to say that their opponents, the St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs, were not worthy opponents; despite reaching the Tier 1 final for the first time in just a six-year tenure, the Mustangs dominated the remaining York Region competition this season, outscoring all but Huron 97 – 26 throughout fall play.
The atmosphere looked like an American football movie classic, with hundreds of fans coming out to cheer both sides under the lights of St. Max’s state-of-the-art field. Huron took first possession, using their size and strength to rumble more than 80 yards downfield, a drive eating up most of the first quarter.”

Newmarket’s Huron Warriors just too much for Aurora’s St. Max Mustangs
Huron will meet Sault Ste. Marie`s Superior Heights Steelhawks in OFSAA Bowl Series

By: John Cudmore

The St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs were playing on the notion that anything can happen in a one-game showdown.

Unfortunately, most of what happened after the first quarter was not good for the Mustangs in the York Region senior football Tier 1 championship game Saturday night. And in a matchup against a more experience and powerful opponent, almost everything has to go right to have a chance.”

Seasoned Warriors welcome St. Max to big game

By: John Cudmore

The game marks the first appearance in a regional senior Tier 1 final for the six-year-old Mustangs program, while the Warriors have reached the title game 12 straight seasons and counting.

Kickoff at St. Max is scheduled for 6 p.m.

The winner advances to the OFSAA bowl series Simcoe Bowl against the Northern Ontario champion Dec. 1 in Hamilton.

The game plan is a simple one for the Mustangs, said (coach) Gaudio.

“We have to go out and execute and if we do that and they beat us, we’ll just shake their hands and acknowledge they were the better team,” he said. “It’s 48 minutes of football and high school kids in a one-game, winner-take-all. It’s doable and anything can happen. We’re not going to change how we do things just because we’re playing one of the best teams in Canada.”

Newmarket high schools collar host roles for football semifinals

By: John Cudmore

To no one’s surprise, Newmarket’s Huron Heights Warriors are a favourite for a 12th straight appearance in the York Region Athletic Association senior final. The Warriors cemented a home-field semifinal berth Monday afternoon with a 73-6 rout of Markham’s St. Brother Andre Cardinals in a game to determine top spot in Zone B. The loss knocked the Cardinals out of the four-team mix for the Tier 1 playdowns and into the Tier 2 bracket.

Warriors’ rookie Danny McWhirter returned the opening kickoff for a touchdown and returned an interception for another as the Warriors built a 52-0 halftime lead. Gregg Anderson, Skyler McMurtry and Aiden Meilzcarek also had two touchdowns for the Warriors who completed the regular season unbeaten in five games.

Barrie’s St. Joan of Arc blanked by powerhouse football team from Newmarket

By: Stephen Sweet

It was a rare occurrence in Simcoe County. The St. Joan of Arc Knights, who have won three straight championships, went up against another top-notch opponent in exhibition action on Thursday. It didn’t go their way.

“We didn’t expect to lose by 35, but we couldn’t get anything rolling,” said Knights head coach Nick Nicoletta. “They (Warriors) were a methodical offence that we thought we were ready for, but they execute so well. Props to their coaches and their program.” There was an expectation that the Warriors, ranked 24th in Canada, would be the toughest opponent St. Joan of Arc had to face all year. That theory was proven early on.
