The Varsity Blues football program is pleased to announce that two members of the Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School’s football team have signed letters of intent and made known their commitment to play and pursue an education at the University of Toronto in the fall of 2010.

“The Holy Trinity Titans have produced two very talented and athletically gifted football players,” said Varsity Blues head coach Greg DeLaval. “They are both character guys with a lot of potential and they are looking forward to staying in the GTA so they can pursue a degree and play football closer to home.”

Jermaine Felix and Kema Nnawuchi are both from Courtice, Ont., and both have been drawn to the University of Toronto for two reasons: First, the University offers some of the strongest academic programs in Canada and secondly, they feel that the football program is moving in the right direction and they want to be part of that progress.

In similar fashion to what is expected at the U of T, Holy Trinity pushes their students balance success on the field as well as in the classroom. These two outstanding athletes are both honour roll students and take their academics seriously. Felix is an OECTA award winner as well as a 2009 Ontario scholar, while Nnawuchi maintained honour roll status throughout his four years of high school.

At 6-foot-1, Felix is a wide receiver who earned the 2009 senior football leadership award, the 2007 junior boys basketball most valuable player award and was twice named the MVP of the track and field team (2008 & 2009).

Nnawuchi will come to camp in August as a viable running back with an impressive resume. Not only was he named the Titans football most valuable player in 2007 and 2009, the 6-1 speedster was the basketball and track and field MVP in 2007. Named to the Toronto Star’s top 25 players to watch (2008), Nnawuchi was twice named a GTA all-star, selected by the Toronto Star (2008 and 2009).

“Both players bring exceptional speed to the football field,” said Holy Trinity head coach Fred Zinkie. “Jermaine will be challenged to make the switch from QB to WR or DB but he has the athletic ability to make that happen. Kema has one of the longest resumes that a football player can have when leaving high school. He will be a great addition to the Varsity Blues’ program.”

Students who sign a letter of intent and commit to Varsity Blues intercollegiate teams will be eligible to play at the University of Toronto provided they are academically admissible and have applied through the normal process with the Ontario Universities Application Centre.
