Dylan Whetter began playing the sport in the spring of 2014 at the bantam level with the Brantford Bisons of the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) as an offensive left guard.

That following fall, he joined his high school team, the St. John’s College Eagles of the Brant County Secondary School Athletic Association (BCSSAA), playing at offensive left guard and right tackle as a junior.

Spring of 2015 brought a move to the junior varsity Bisons as offensive right tackle and right tackle.

This past fall, Dylan returned to the Eagles playing mainly as offensive right tackle, but also as defensive guard and tackle.

He was also one of the team’s five captains.

That same season, the Eagles standout was also a part of the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) Top 100.

For this year’s OPC, his first goal is to make the Top 100 again.

“During the challenge I would like to improve upon my foot speed and learn new blocking techniques,” said Dylan.

Moreover, the 2017 graduate says he is going to challenge himself by making the #CFC100 list is one of his goals.

During the offseason, the Eagles standout has attended several camps, including ones hosted by McMaster Marauders, Guelph Gryphons and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, all this past summer.

This year, he started weight lifting and cardio training at a local fitness centre.

His idol is Nick Kaczur because he is from Brantford, played a similar position and started with the Bisons.

Kaczur wore the number 77 on his jersey with the Bisons, same as Dylan.

“He played high school football in Brantford and went on to play CFL with Montreal and then NFL with New England,” commented the Eagles standout. “He has that never give up attitude and proved that small town boys can make it in the big leagues.”

Dylan loves the sport because he enjoys working as a team member, as well as meeting new players and coaches.

“I like the physical contact and challenges of the game,” added the offensive guard.
