The 2018 season was the 26th in program history for the Huronia Stallions and was a successful one with both the bantam and varsity teams advancing to the Ontario Football Conference Playoffs.

The varsity team defeated the league champion Oshawa Hawkeyes on the road during the regular season and were narrowly defeated by a strong Scarborough Thunder team in the playoffs.

Several current and former Stallions players and coaches are also making news at the university football level.

The Stallions currently have six former members of the program coaching with Canadian university football programs. These include Kyle Graves who was recently named the Offensive Coordinator at Mount Allison, former CFL coach and current Acadia assistant Josh Lambert, and Tyler Honeywood (Acadia), Nico Alves (Mount Allison), Tivon Cook (St. Francis Xavier), and Jeremy Rogers (Windsor).

Several Stallions players have also committed to university football programs including Kayden Peters who dressed at St. Francis Xavier this past fall. 2019 commits include: Zechariah Willems (Mount Allison), Chris Costigan (Mount Allison), Lucas Pyz (Guelph), TJ Wallin (York), and Kail Dava (Tennessee Tech).
