McMaster’s successful program attracts 3

McMaster adds an out-of-province commit, a local commit and an Ontario commit to their 2018 recruitment class.

When linebacker Eryk Bujalski from Vincent Massey Collegiate Institute saw the McMaster Marauders, he saw much more than a team, he saw a future for himself.

Defensive backs Nick Myke form Westmount Secondary School and Josh Cumber from St, Benedict Catholic Secondary School will also be joining the Marauders.

Eryk Bujalski

When Eryk Bujalski packs up his bags and moves to Hamilton, Ontario, he will have some familiar faces to show him around. “I have two very close friends that are apart of the program, Myles Baldwin and Andreas Dueck, and I have only heard positive things about the school,” he said.

“I chose to commit to McMaster University because I saw a great opportunity at this school. They have a great program coached by an amazing coaching staff…led by Head Coach Greg Knox,” he added. ‘They have been a very successful program in the past. I am looking forward to being coached and soaking in all the great knowledge that the coaches have about the sport.”

The 5’10, 220lbs middle linebacker will also be looking to learn as much as he can in the classroom. The four-time honour roll student is interested taking either social sciences or the humanities. His goal is to become a teacher. “McMaster has a high level of education, which was also very important for my choice,” he said.

“When I went on my visit, I felt like this is where I belong, and I thought that it would be a great fit for me,” he added.

In seven years, Bujalski has played with the Fort Garry Lions and the Vincent Massey Trojans (Winnipeg High School Football League) in his hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has played on the under-16 edition of Team Manitoba once and twice on the under-18 squad. He has been the Trojans’ ‘athlete of the year’ for the past three years. In 2015, he helped capture an ANAVETS Bowl championship.

This past summer, while with Team Manitoba at the 2017 Football Canada Cup, he was named as the defensive player of the game two out of the three games played. He was also selected to be apart of Team Canada U18 at the 2018 International Bowl.
