The Brantford Bandits are proud to announce their very first “Meet the Bandits” segment! This week, you’ll be getting to know forward Will Mathers!
From 2021-2023 Mathers played for the Kitchener Jr. rangers AAA U18 team, boasting 58 games played and 13-18-31 PTS. However, we are now very fortunate to call him one of our Brantford Bandits! So far, Mathers has played 4 games, collecting 2 assists and 2 PTS.
As per a questionnaire we had all the boys fill out, Will’s favourite hockey-related memory is winning the alliance championship - which we agree sounds pretty fun! This year, one goal he wishes to accomplish is to win. Personally, thats a goal we can all get behind!
He also thinks that Damon Radley has the best style on the team, his biggest hockey “ick” is when people touch his stick, and that his best quality is his shot. Will’s favourite team is the Toronto Maple Leafs, and his favourite player is Austin Matthews.
He wants everyone to know that he is hardworking, and that if they were to make a movie about his life he’d want Tom Cruise to play him.
Mathers thinks that one of his teammates, Evan Palubeski’s, best quality is his speed, and if he wasn’t involved in hockey he’d likely play ball hockey instead.
In the future he hopes to see himself as a physical education teacher, but for the time being his main hope for the season is to get to know his teammates.
We look forward to a great season ahead, Will! #rollbandits
