Academic opportunities attract McMaster’s first 2020 commitment

Marauders introduce first commitment of 2020 class.

McMaster’s first player commitment for the 2020 season doesn’t model his game around any particular football player. Instead, OG Pierre Eskandar is determined to carve out his own niche on the Marauders’ offensive line.

Eskandar is a calm and collected person off of the field but brings his intensity to the gridiron, where, as he put it, “expects the most out of (himself).”

The hulking six-foot, 295-pound lineman out of Champlain College-Lennoxville in Laval, QC, is grateful for where the game of football has and continues to take him in life. Eskandar believes it provided him with the opportunity to study at a renowned school such as McMaster, and more specifically the school’s Justice Political Philosophy and Law program.

“(McMaster) has one of the few programs in the country that allow you to play an elite level of football and get a world-renown education at the same time,” said Eskandar. “That was definitely something that appealed me.”

The Montreal native won the 2017 Collegial Division I Bol d’Or Championship, Quebec’s Provincial Collegiate and School Football Championship, with Champlain College-Lennoxville.

When asked about his decision to attend McMaster, Eskandar said the Marauders coaching staff was very welcoming and down to earth. He also stated the coaches “made me feel very comfortable and confident in my decision.”
