Arman Yazdani from Lindsay, Ontario is a second-year rugby player enrolled in Conestoga’s Civil Engineering Technology diploma program. Yazdani plays as a fullback and was instrumental in leading his team to the OCAA bronze medal. He was named to the Men's Rugby All-Stars team and his team's most valuable player.
Coach Kyle O’Neill described Yazdani as “the smallest guy on the pitch, yet the most fearless player I have ever coached. He doesn’t miss a tackle and he saved us many times by completely disregarding his own body." According to O’Neill, Yazdani “exemplifies what it means to be a Condor."
The 2014 Atletes of the Year each received a school ring and a $500 scholarship in recognition of their athletic leadership and accomplishments.
