2 CFC100s continue career with SMU

SMU adds two top out-of-province commits to their 2019 class.

CFC100s Teon Alexandre-Amour, a running back from Notre Dame Regional Secondary School, and Erik Johnson, a receiver from St. Michael’s College School, are set to bring their talents to the St. Mary’s Huskies.

CFC100 Teon Alexander-Amour

It is safe to say that there is a lot about St. Mary’s that Teon Alexander-Amour enjoys. “I really like how Head Coach Colzie invests in his players and really embraces the family side in football while also keeping it business-like,” he said. “The coaching staff is awesome. They are very supportive and are really invested in the players. Also, the staff has a good sense of humour.”

Alexander-Amour, who is 5’8, 175lbs, added that, “I really like the small-town vibes of Halifax. It reminds me of a spread-out Vancouver. The team is also full of really nice guys too. It really feels like everyone fits in.”

When looking at academics, Alexander-Amour said he is interested in sociology. “I want to gain an understanding on how people work from a scientific point of view,” he said.

Hailing from East Vancouver, BC, Alexander-Amour has played with several teams in his career. In 2012 he was a member of the Burnaby Lions. He then played nine-man football with the New Westminster Hyacks (BCSSFA). He took part in the Coqitlam flag football in 2016. The following year he played for the Burnaby Chargers (BCCFA). He also was a member of Team BC at the 2017 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge ‘Battle of the Best.’ He has played with the Notre Dame Jugglers (BCSSFA) since 2017.

He was an AAA conference all-star and a 2018 AAA provincial all-star in 2018. He was named as the ‘best back’ from 2015 to 2017. In 2014 he was named as the defensive player of the year.

CFC100 Erik Johnson

Erik Johnson, who is 5’9, 175lbs, is a resident of Etobicoke, Ontario. He played with the St. Michael’s Kerry Blues (CISAA) in high school. He was also a member of the Toronto Jr. Argonauts (OFC) and played in the 2018 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. In his seven-year career, he was named as the Jr. Argo’s offensive player of the year and the Kerry Blues’ prep school athlete of the year in 2015. That same year he won a junior Metro Bowl. The following season he was a captain on the Blues. He was also the recipient of the 2017 Fr. Mulcahy Award and helped Blues win an OFSAA Independent Bowl.
