Welcome to the 2017 Sudbury Gladiators Football Club.
The ‘Glads’ are fielding a Varsity (U20) team for the tenth season in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC); they are the defending champions in the league’s North Division. The Varsity squad is led by Head Coach Aaron Rehel.
This is the ninth season for the ‘Glads’ Junior Varsity (U17) program. This is Head Coach JJ McKnight’s first season in that role but he’s been around Sudbury football for a long time, previously with the Gladiators and he’s well known in high school football.
In the summer, the Gladiators bring together the best high school players from the City of Greater Sudbury and the surrounding area to compete against teams in North Bay, Sault Ste. Marie, and southern Ontario. The results are evident when players go back to their high schools in the fall.
Most of the Gladiators have played in the Joe Macdonald Youth Football League; some will go on to play at Canadian universities and many of the players on the Sudbury Spartans’ roster are former ‘Glads’.
