Recently, Guenard completed his career with Centennial Coyotes of the Calgary Senior High School Secondary School Athletic Association (CSHSAA). This past season, the quarterback completed 122 passes in 212 attempts for 2421 passing yards, 29 touchdowns (24 passing, five rushing) and only threw two interceptions.

In addition to the Coyotes, Guenard has previously suited up for the Calgary Colts of the Calgary Area Midget Football Association (CAMFA).

Last month, the Calgary pivot made his third consecutive appearance on the CFC 100. With his commitment to the Axemen, Guenard becomes the first CFC 100 2015 recruit to commit to an AUS team.

“We are very excited Hunter made his decision to come play for us at Acadia,” commented Axemen Head Coach Jeff Cummins.  “His skill set works very well within the schemes in which we use now.”

Not only does he have talent and experience, but he also possesses intangibles which makes him the right fit for the Axemen.

“Hunter’s arm strength and ability to pull the ball down and run make him a dual threat in the backfield and allows us to be very creative on offense,” assessed Cummins.  “We are getting a true competitor, a very smart football player, and a film junkie which bodes well for his future here at Acadia.”

“We are very fortunate to have such a talent and can’t wait to get on the field in August. We welcome Hunter to his new family on the East Coast.”

For his part, the CFC 100 quarterback found his home and family away from home at the Wolfville, Nova Scotia campus.

“I chose Acadia because it felt the most like home,” explained Guenard of his decision.  “It is a great small community and everyone seems to know each other walking down the street.”

“Another thing that stood out to me was how close the football team was. All of the guys would eat together and everyone was friends with each other and I can’t wait to be a part of that locker room.”

Moreover, he is looking forward to being instructed by the Axemen coaching staff as they will help him achieve further gridiron success at the CIS level and beyond.

“The coaching staff is second to none,” expressed Guenard.  “Coach [Jeff] Cummins is a great coach which every player only had positive things to say.”

“Also Coach [Chris] Judd (Axemen Offensive Coordinator) and I are on the same page. We both have the same goals and I know he is going to do all that he can to set me up to be the most successful I can be.”
