Boies named Team Quebec under-18 head coach

Pat Boies

Patrick Boies, the offensive coordinator of the McGill University Redmen, will lead Team Quebec’s under-18 provincial team at 2014 Football Canada Cup to be held at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon in July.

Boies will be in familiar territory as he led Team Quebec’s offensive unit  during their successful defense of the gold medal for the third straight year at the 2013 Football Canada Cup which was held in Moncton, New Brunswick.

Boies is currently the Offensive Coordinator of the McGill Redmen and served in the same role with the Canadian Junior under-20 National Team that won the Gold Medal in Texas.  Moreover, he spent six seasons coaching CEGEP’s Division 1 squad, FX Garneau Elans (including four seasons as head coach).  During his tenure with the Elans, the team won a Bol D’Or championship title in 2011 as well as another one in 2008 at the collegiate AAA level. Other coaching stints include defensive coordinator for Beauce-Appalaches in 2002 and Cannes Iron Masks (France).

Boies had a successful playing career in the CIS as a member of the Laval Rouge et Or.  During his time there, he captained the Rouge et Or to their first Vanier Cup in 1999 and was selected as a second team All-Canadian defensive back.

Pat Boies becomes the third Head Coach of “Team Quebec” since the introduction of the new under-18 category. He succeeds Brad Collison (2012-2013) and Marc Loranger (2010-2011).
