The Vanier College Athletics
Department recently announced the hiring of former Cheetah Jason
Bresler as the new Mens Soccer Coach. Bresler will replace
the highly successful Mike Morzajew who resigned this past fall.
Bresler played for the
Cheetahs from 1992-94 and was team captain in his final season.
He was team M.V.P., All-Canadian and named to the All-Tournament
team at the National Championships in 1994. Jason was then named
a second team all-star with Concordia University in 1995 before
he moved on to York University where he was Rookie-of-the-Year for
the Ontario East Champions in 1997, a team that placed fourth at
the Nationals. Jason was honored with a first all-star team selection
in 1998. He also participated in the Maccabiah Games four times
(1993, 95, 97, 2005) and played in the Canadian Pro Soccer League
with the York Region Shooters (1998-99). Among Breslers coaching
experience, he was the head coach at the 1998 Maccabi Youth Games
and was a training assistant with York University in 1998 and 1999.
Bresler graduated with a D.E.C. in Social Science from Vanier College
in 1994 and with a B.A. in Political Science from York University
Linda Macpherson said that Vanier College was fortunate to have
some extremely high caliber people apply for the position of mens
soccer coach, including three former Cheetahs who all played for
coach Mike Celanis 1994 provincial winning team that captured
the bronze medal at the National Championships in Medicine Hat,
Alberta. This is a real testament to the kind of coach that Mike
Celani was to have inspired so many of his players to want to give
something back to Vanier. Jason Bresler will do just that and be
an excellent role model for the student athletes that he will help
mold during his tenure with the Cheetahs.
