Bishop’s ‘new wave’ coaching attracts 3

Bishop’s adds one Québec commit and two out-of-province commits to their 2018 class.

Defensive back Felix Cossette from Collège André-Grasset and offensive lineman Aaron Sharma from Lorne Park Secondary School are excited to learn under the Bishop’s Gaiters coaching staff.

Jake Kelly, a defensive back from Bill Crothers Secondary School, will also be joining the Gaiters.

Felix Cossette

Looking to make an impact early, Felix Cossette found that the Gaiters offered him a chance to see field time quickly. “The main reason I chose to commit to Bishop’s was the new coaching staff and the ‘new wave’ they bring,” he said. “The coaches are winners and I believe they will bring that mentality to the team.”

Cossette, who is 6’1, 195lbs, added that studying in English was also important to him. He is interested in taking economics. Originally from Laval, Quebec, he spent three years with Les Phénix du Collège André-Grasset (RSEQ Division 1). In high school, he received a few MVP awards.

Aaron Sharma

When Aaron Sharma was five, he started playing rugby. When he moved to Canada, he translated his skills from the pitch to the gridiron. Five years later, the 6’5, 300lbs offensive tackle will be taking his talents to the next level.

“I loved the program choice of sports studies and the small-town vibe,” Sharma said of Bishop’s. “The coaches seemed to really want you to be able to grow as a player and be able to achieve your goals on and off the field.”

Seven years ago, Sharma and his family packed their bags and headed across the Atlantic from their home in London, England. Settling in Lorne Park, Mississauga, Sharma played with the Lorne Park Spartans (ROPSSAA) in high school. He won a ROPSSAA championship and an OFSAA Bowl this past season.

Jake Kelly

Standing at 5’10, 155lbs, Jake Kelly played with the Bill Crothers Colts (YRAA) in high school. He is from Markham, Ontario.
