VANIER COLLEGE NAMES NEW SOCCER COACH
FORMER CHEETAH BRESLER TO GUIDE MEN’S SQUAD
March 29, 2005


The Vanier College Athletics Department recently announced the hiring of former Cheetah Jason Bresler as the new Men’s 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 Bresler’s 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 in 1999.

Athletic Coordinator Linda Macpherson said that Vanier College was fortunate to have some extremely high caliber people apply for the position of men’s soccer coach, including three former Cheetahs who all played for coach Mike Celani’s 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.
