Head Coach: Mike McDonald

We are thrilled to introduce Mike McDonald as our Junior Varsity Head Coach for the 2021 OPFL season.
Coach McDonald is originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where he both played, and coached. Since 2006, he has had the opportunity to coach both at high school and the USports level at his alma mater, the University of Saskatchewan.
During his 10+ years of coaching, he has coached every position on the defensive side of the ball,  primarily working with the defensive backs.  Having recently moved to Ontario, Coach McDonald is currently the Defensive Coordinator with the Golden Gaels at Cameron Heights High School.
Outside of football, Coach McDonald has also demonstrated a strong commitment to community involvement, being recognized with many accolades over the last few years, including CBC Saskatchewan Future 40 award and Red Cross Saskatchewan's young humanitarian of the Year Award. Coach McDonald is also the founder and CEO of the charitable organization Recess Guardians, whose program has been launched in over 700 schools across Canada and works to transform recess time at schools by re-integrating unstructured play activity and empowering youth to lead their peers. 
"I'm incredibly honoured to come on board as the Head Coach for the Junior Varsity Predators. My coaching philosophy is simple, focus on the little things to make a big impact. I'm a true believer in playing downhill, hard nosed football, and that by keeping things simple, we are able to allow our athletes to fly around and make plays"
Understanding the  expectations and challenges that come with playing in the premier division of the OPFL, Coach Mike will be supported by an experienced coaching staff many with USports backgrounds, committed to advancing the development of our JV student athletes.
With a proven track record of inspiring youth,  we look forward to Coach Mike providing a positive impact on our JV Predators, all while building a championship caliber program.
"I'm very excited to get this season underway and bring home that Championship to Waterloo Region"
