Gabe Ferraro is ready to kick-off the 2018 season

Gryphon kicker/punter Gabe Ferraro has tried to put last season out of his mind.

It’s not that it was a bad season, quite the opposite as he set a U Sports record for the number of field goals made during a season.

However, he doesn’t want to get into a situation where he’s trying to better that mark.

Gryphons Get First Win of 2018 with 33-18 Victory Over York

The Guelph Gryphons football team certainly didn't lack incentive as week 2 of the OUA regular season came around. Guelph's players wanted to right the ship after a narrow defeat last week in Hamilton – and getting a first ever for their new head coach was high on the list of priorities.

Bresciani leaves it all on the field

If receiver Thomas Bresciani had been born a few days earlier, he wouldn’t be playing for the Gryphons this year.

There’s a U Sports rule that states that any player who turns 25 before Sept. 1 is ineligible to play. Bresciani will turn 25 on Sept. 5

Wayne Gerrie: One of the Most Experienced Gryphons

When the captains of past Gryphon Football teams dropped by to watch the current Gryphons practice, Wayne Gerrie might have been a bit of a rarity. 

Gerrie had the distinction of having been a captain for four of his five years and he served in that position on teams with both the Aggies and Redmen monikers.

Greg Corfield: Enthusiastic for Captain Role

Defensive lineman Greg Corfield has been given a new role with the Gryphons this season. 

“This year I got named captain so there’s a lot of leadership coming from me,” the fourth-year Gryphon says. “I’ve never been a captain before so this is something completely new and hopefully I can do a great job at it.”

One of the things about Gryphon football training camps is that you never know who might drop by.

Orion Edwards: A winning attitude

This month, I had the pleasure of speaking with Orion Edwards: Wildman Award Winner, SAM Mentor and Gryphon Football alumnus.

Dave Wright Excited about continuing Role as Head Therapist

Last month when the Toronto Argonauts and Ottawa RedBlacks clashed in a CFL game on the Alumni Stadium field, Gryphons’ head athletic therapist David Wright could be excused for not wanting to cheer for one team ahead of the other. 

For six years earlier this decade, Wright had been employed by one or the other. He had been with the Argos from 2011 to 2013 and then with the RedBlacks from 2014 to 2016.

Tom Dimitroff Room Unveiling

If Tom Dimitroff Sr. had been at last month’s ceremony when the head coach’s office in the Gryphon Pavilion was named after him, he probably would’ve been embarrassed. 

He’d probably wonder why the room couldn’t have been named after the Gryphon teams he coached instead of being named after him because in his mind it was always about the team.
