Tyler Crapigna It wasn't hard to find an arsenal of photographs to design from when Dana Segin, Tyler's Kicking & Punting Coach asked me to do this special project. What makes is all worth it for me is the amazing reaction received by the long standing supporters who help Tyler be the best kicker he can be.

Big Ben Will Strike in Dallas

McMaster Marauder Ben D’Aguilar is attracting attention south of the border.

The 6’2, 240 defensive lineman from Hamilton has been invited to National Football League Super Regional Combine in Dallas, Texas on April 7. D’Aguilar received the invite based on testing results he had posted in an NFL Regional Combine in Florida.

“It’s champ to be invited to this Combine as it gives me a personal opportunity to prove that I have what it takes despite being Canadian and whatever misconceptions that may carry,” commented D’Aguilar.

With the goal of putting in a great performance at the Super Combine, the Hamilton defensive star will be working on improving on certain areas.

“The biggest thing I’d like to do to prepare for the Combine is to run hills once the weather clears up,” explained D’Aguilar.

D’Aguilar has just completed his fourth season with the Marauders of Ontario University Athletics. In October 2012, he set a Canadian Interuniversity Sport record for single season sacks as he amassed 12.5 sacks in eight games. He also registered 28 tackles, 11 tackles for a loss, a forced fumble, and a pass break-up.

Metras Award as Lineman of the Year. In 2011, he led the Marauders to a Vanier Cup victory. This past September, he was ranked fifth on the Canadian Football League’s list of the Top 15 Prospects for its 2013 draft, which is set to take place on May 6. Moreover, D’Aguilar will participate in this upcoming weekend’s CFL Combine.

Previous to the Marauders, D’Aguilar spent a season at Fork Union Military Academy. Other teams that he has suited up for include the Hamilton Ironmen and his high school team, the Barton Barons of the Southern Ontario Secondary Schools Association.

No. 1 Marauders Stays King of the Hill

The reigning Vanier Cup champion McMaster Marauders top the Football Reporters of Canada/CIS rankings for the ninth time in as many polls this season, a few days after wrapping up conference play with a perfect 8-0 record for the first time since 2003. After receiving 29 first-place votes from the 30-member FRC panel in each of the last five polls, the Marauders were a unanimous No. 1 selection this week, thanks in part to the Calgary Dinos’ first loss of the campaign. Calgary (6-1) drops to No. 3 in the new Top 10 behind the Laval Rouge et Or (7-1), who climb back to No. 2 for the first time since the Sept. 4 rankings (poll No. 2).

The Montreal Carabins (7-1) remain in fourth place, only one point back of Calgary in the voting (225 vs. 224). The No. 5 Guelph Gryphons (7-1) and No. 6 Queen’s Gaels (6-2) also stay put.

The Regina Rams (5-2) and Western Mustangs (5-3) swap positions at No. 7 and No. 8, while the Acadia Axemen (6-1) and Manitoba Bisons (4-3) hold on to the ninth and tenth spots, respectively.

Top-ranked McMaster, the only remaining undefeated team in the country, crushed visiting Laurier (3-5), 43-0, in its regular season finale on Saturday (Oct. 20) to extend its overall winning streak to 18 straight games dating back to Week 3 of the 2011 schedule, one shy of the all-time CIS mark set by Laval from 2004 to 2005. The defending national champs, who have a bye this week in the first round of the OUA playoffs, will get a chance to tie the prestigious record on Nov. 3 when they host a conference semifinal.

No. 2 Laval dominated Bishop’s (3-5), 57-7, Sunday in Quebec City to claim its 55th consecutive victory on home turf since 2004, also a CIS mark. Last year’s CIS finalists can clinch first place in the RSEQ standings with a win at Concordia (1-7) on Saturday.

The No. 3 Dinos saw their hopes of a perfect conference season go up in smoke Friday night when they fell, 12-9, at Regina. Despite the loss, Calgary secured first place in Canada West thanks to a positive head-to-head point differential in two contests against the Rams this fall. The reigning four-time CWUAA champions close out league play on Saturday with a home title versus No. 10 Manitoba.

All other Top-10 teams were victorious this past weekend, including No. 4 Montreal, 44-0, vs. McGill (2-6); No. 5 Guelph, 39-18, vs. York (2-6); No. 6 Queen’s, 35-7, vs. Toronto (2-6); No. 7 Regina defeating Calgary; No. 8 Western, 32-29, vs. Ottawa (2-6); No. 9 Acadia, 12-5, vs. Saint Mary’s (2-5); No. 10 Manitoba, 37-31, vs. UBC (2-5).

The OUA playoffs get under way on Saturday with a pair of quarter-final matchups that will see Queen’s host Laurier (3-5) in Kingston, and Western welcome Windsor (3-5) in London.

Fifth-ranked Guelph is the second OUA team that earned a bye in the first round of the post-season. The Gryphons’ 7-1 conference record – including seven straight wins to close out the schedule – is the best in program history.

Here are some of my favorite pics from the last 3 games: 

Football energizes me as a photographer and I am always looking forward to the next game. Congratulations to my home town McMaster Marauders for their awesome season accolades. I feel that there may be more celebrations to come. I hope to be there and capture those moments.
