The Ontario Football Conference kicked off its second season of the varsity division on the weekend (May 23-24).
Both OFC president Doug Dittmer and Varsity president Mike Ramsay were looking to the second season. “After last year’s spectacular final between the champion Burlington Stampeders and the Toronto Jr. Argonauts at Ivor Wynne Stadium, you can look to even more exciting games this year as the Sudbury Gladiators, Twin Cities Predators, York Simcoe Bucs and our newest entry, the Hamilton Wentworth Panthers, try to depose the Stampeders,” observed Dittmer.
“With the addition of the junior varsity and pee wee age levels, there will be many football triple headers that fans won’t want to miss.”
The league plays an exciting brand of three down Canadian Football to prepare athletes for Junior or CIS play. The league’s founding members are clubs with a long and successful track record of competitive play and sound administration.
