HAMILTON, Ont. – Coming off a breakout season in 2013 when he led OUA in rushing, Laurier running back Dillon Campbell (Whitby, Ont.) established himself as one of the best football players in the country by literally running away with the CIS rushing title.
Outside of the Marauders initiatives, he is a volunteer coach in the Niagara Minor Football Association and at St. Paul's Secondary for his former high school team in Niagara Falls. Once again, his efforts go above and beyond as a volunteer coach, often organizing and taking part in team events, and working with players during the offseason as well.
Daniel Petermann (Stoney Creek, Ont.) followed in the footsteps of his teammate and fellow receiver Daniel Vandervoort, putting together a rookie campaign that would make several veterans envious. Petermann ranked second on the Marauders with 35 receptions and four touchdowns, and was the team's third-leading receiver with 468 yards.
