The York University Lions football program announced the second group of recruits that have signed letters of intent to play for the Lions for the 2010-11 season.

The newest group includes outside linebacker Jeremy Adubofuor, defensive back / safety Braedon Cameron, running back Norm Craig and lineman Edward Michel.

“I am very excited and optimistic about the continuing commitment and the signings of these players,” said recruiting co-ordinator and assistant coach Mike Lepore. “With these commitments we are starting the rebuilding process of this program and we are finally creating some much-needed depth to take us through the four full quarters of a football game.”

Michel has significant football experience from both his high school team and the Niagara Spears of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL). A four-year captain at Denis Morris Catholic High School in his hometown of St. Catharines, Ont., the six-foot, 280-pound lineman received the most outstanding lineman award for the Redmen and was also named an OVFL all-star in 2005 as a member of the Spears’ junior varsity team.

Cameron comes to York from St. Patrick’s High School in Thunder Bay, Ont., where he was a top defensive player for the Saints. A two-time Superior Secondary Schools Athletic Association (SSSAA) first-team city all-star, he recorded four interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two touchdowns in his fifth year with the team. The five-foot-11, 170-pound standout won five individual awards throughout the season and helped the Saints advance to the Thunder Bay high school senior football final.

Adubofuor will quickly become a local favourite among the fans as he joins the Lions from CW Jefferys Collegiate Institute, located just around the corner from York University. He was CW Jefferys’ defensive most valuable player this past season and received instruction throughout the year from players and coaches of the Toronto Argonauts as his high school was part of the Level The Playing Field program established by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) and the Toronto Foundation for Student Success. A six-foot-three, 220-pound linebacker, he brings an intense attitude and a strong work ethic to the Lions.

Craig is a five-foot-ten, 185-pound player from Shelburne, Ont.. He spent last season playing for his high school team at Robert F. Hall Catholic High School in Caledon, Ont., and brings a new dimension to the Lions run game as a speedy athlete with quick feet.

The York Lions begin their 2010 football season on the road Monday, Sept. 6 against the Guelph Gryphons. The home opener is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11 at York Stadium, when the Lions will play host to the Ottawa Gee-Gees.
