Head Coach: Adrian Thorne

Coach Adrian is a Waterloo Warrior alumni, who participated and contributed to the greater success of the football team from 92-97. During his  successful career as Wide Receiver he was a  4 time OUAA all-star and captain of the team from 93-97.  He currently holds his place  in Waterloo history as 2nd in all-purpose yardage and is 3rd all-time among wide receivers.
In his first year with Waterloo Region Football as  2016 Peewee Predators Head Coach, Coach Adrian led his team to an undefeated 7-0 Regular Season and the OFC Championship. In 2017 as Bantam Predators Head Coach , his team earned a 7-1  season and was narrowly defeated in the OVFL semi-finals.
He is incredibly well regarded and highly respected by his players and is considered a great mentor for student athletes both on and off the field. He was awarded the BMO & Argos Community Coach award in 2016 which is to recognize coaches who exhibit strong leadership in Football and demonstrate mentorship attributes that build football players with great character.   Coach Adrian also works tirelessly to develop his players, providing options outside of practice for additional skill development, and challenges his players to do their personal best through extensive film study sessions.
Away from the football field, Coach Adrian has trained a wide variety of athletes with his sports specific training program, since 1997. Utilizing portions of his football training regiment, Thorne creates an intense and motivational training atmosphere for everyone he trains.

With his incredible record of winning football games and developing young men of high character, we believe Coach Adrian is the perfect fit for Junior Varsity.  His immense knowledge of the game, emphasis on fundamentals and ability to motivate his players will be key elements  that coupled with a highly experienced coaching staff will lead to a successful JV season., 
Coach Adrian is looking to ramp up the intensity for the Junior Varsity team.  His philosophy  for 2018 is “Refuse to Lose”.  “We will play to win but whatever the outcome our refuse to lose attitude  will prevail. That means knowing how to take responsibility for your mistakes, learning from them and turning adversity into opportunity”

We are thrilled to have Coach Thorne as our JV Head Coach this year. We believe our JV players will be very excited to have a coach of this calibre  and experience.
