2017 High School Team Previews (ON): Georgetown District Rebels ready for deep run

Leading up to the start of the high school season, we will be posting high school/Cégep team previews from June to September as part of our comprehensive season coverage. Canadafootballchat.com (CFC) has tapped into our network of coaches to produce team previews for the 2017 season. The #CFCteampreviews highlight top returning players, team strengths, and toughest opponents.

CFC also will bring you the national high school football rankings known as the #CFC50. Last year’s final rankings were the most controversial to date…and we heard about it. Whether you agree or disagree, we love hearing from you. For an explanation of how the rankings are computed, please scroll to the bottom of the page.

Georgetown Rebels (Halton Public- Tier 1-Georgetown, ON)

The Georgetown Rebels are geared up and ready for another football season. Head coach John Leckie is entering his third year at top of the monarchy, and is ready for another go. The Rebels finished 5-1-1 last year, eventually losing in the HSSAA semi-finals.

Leckie says their ‘X’ factor is sort of a wild card.

Myles Mcveigh [is an] inexperienced player who is strong as an ox and an OFSAA wrestler. [He] could play Fullback or offensive line.”

QB Mitchel Spence

He adds the quarterbacks, whether it’s “Mitchel Spence, Tyler Vaccari, or Marcus Watson,” will have plenty of weapons to choose from.

We are very strong at receiver and in the secondary. We will be great at running a wide open offence, and defending the pass,” adding athleticism is the defining quality all of the Rebels’ share.

Leckie adds there are a handful of key returnees to the roster this season.

Mitchel Spence, Matt Mcdonagh, Erik Rasmussen, John Wark, Lucas Fritz, DJ Strachan, Will Dolomont, Zach Williamson, Daniel Catalli, Nick Samis, David Bhattacharya, Reid Williams, Matt Ayala, Ryan Lunn, Jacob Mandel.” added Leckie.

However losing players is all part of the territory in high school, and Leckie rounded off some big losses off the roster.

Ethan Kalra, Alex Leduc, Connor Heggie, Kyle Lyons, Matt Orlandi, Tyler Ward, Zach Winnie,” remarked Leckie. 

They’re up against strong competition this season, including the CFC50 ranked Nelson Lords on national high school rankings.

“Frank Hayden will also be strong,” Leckie added that the Huskies won’t be a walk in the park.

They will line up as a spread offence and a 4-3 formation on defense in an attempt to reach their season goal.

Our goal for this season is to win the Tier 1 Halton Public championship.”

The Rebels have five returners on offence on top of eight on defence, and will face the team they hope to take down the Lords on the road October 11th.

How is the #CFC50 evaluated?

The #CFC50 rankings considers all conference and non-conference games (in Canada and the United States) while scrimmages are not evaluated (there is no such thing as an exhibition game – those are non-conference games).

Leagues included in rankings: British Columbia AAA Varsity, Alberta Tier One, Saskatchewan 12-man 4A, Manitoba AAA Varsity, Ontario OFSAA Bowl AAA qualified teams, Quebec Juvenile Division 1, New Brunswick 12-man, Nova Scotia Tier 1.

The #CFC50 is a relative ranking that considers top tier leagues from all eight high school playing provinces (minimum one team represented from each province).  The CFC Scouting Bureau consists of CFC Reporters, CFC Scouts, and also selected local reporters and scouts who submit local ranking results on a weekly basis.  This is the eighth year that Canadafootballchat.com has ranked the top high school teams in Canada.
