Barton grad Ben D’Aguilar is one of four McMaster players at the Canadian Football League’s annual evaluation camp for draft-eligible players.
Fifty standout Canadian prospects in total will be in Toronto from March 22-24.
D’Aguilar, a defensive lineman, is representing the Marauders along with offensive lineman Matt Sewell, receiver Michael DiCroce and defensive back Michael Daly.
Joey Cupido, a St. Jean de Brebeuf grad, was invited to the event, but cannot attend due to a scheduling conflict with his duties as a member of the National Lacrosse League’s Colorado Mammoth.
“We knew that this was a great recruiting class back in 2009 when they came in, so this is not totally unexpected,” explained Jon Behie, the Marauders’ assistant head coach and offensive co-ordinator.
“But certainly, to be recognized by other teams and by the personnel departments in the CFL is a great accomplishment for our program. It speaks to the volume of the talent that we have on this roster, and guys going up against players like (DiCroce) in practice are getting better every day.”
