Niagara X-men football 15th anniversary

April 21, 2012
Today is the 15th anniversary of the Niagara X-men football team. Original name was Niagara Colts. One of 6 charter teams that started the OVFL, Ontario’s 19-under summer league. Name changed to X-men when we decided to play in the USA exclusively. What student-athletes have built themselves into during those 15 years, both on the field and in the gym, is truly amazing. Total of 146 recruiting offers to players who had been given no chance to get to the next level. They showed how to beat the odds. My deepest gratitude to the X-men/Colt family. I’m blessed to have witnessed it. This was just a warm-up. #footballis sacred
