Honours keep piling on for Brannagan

By now everyone has heard the name Danny Brannagan. He is the first quarterback in OUA history to break 10,000 yards passing, and a potential member of the Toronto Argonauts.

On Tuesday June 15th he was given yet another accolade to add to the cabinet. During the 2010 Burlington Sport Alliance Recognition and Hall of Fame dinner Brannagan was named the male athlete of the year of his hometown Burlington, Ont. Brannagan began his career with the Burlington Minor Football Stampeders and the Assumption Secondary School Crusaders before coming to the Gaels.

Schedule change for OUA football

With the suspension of the Waterloo Warriors football program, the 2010 OUA football season has been extended an additional week. The nine remaining football schools will face each other once with the additional week being a bye week.

The schedule remains largely the same. The Queen’s Gaels will begin a week early facing the McMaster Marauders in Hamilton on Wednesday, Sept. 1. They will receive their bye in the second week when they were originally supposed to play Waterloo. The Gaels’ home opener will still be Sunday, Sept. 12 against the Windsor Lancers.
