It didn’t take long for William Moses to feel the love from his future team. “When I visited Montréal, the players I met were really cool with my parents and me and really made us feel welcomed. It’s almost like I was already a part of the team,” he said. “(Family) was an aspect of the teams I visited that I was really looking for.”

He added that, “I never felt like I was just another random guy visiting for fun, not at all. I felt like the coaches really wanted to work with me and develop me as a football player but also as a human being. The Carabins, it’s a big family and that is exactly what I was looking for!”

Speaking of family, Moses, who is from Repentigny, Québec, won’t be straying too far from his. “Having the opportunity to continue my passion with my family near me, it’s the best,” he said.

When it comes to the coaches, the 6’5, 280lbs left tackle said that he thinks the staff is amazing. “No wonder why throughout the years the team keeps having success. Of course, the players are good, but that is because they are trained by an excellent group of coaches,” he said. “I can’t wait to work with these guys!”

Currently studying business and administration, Moses has his sights set on the University of Montréal’s HEC School of Business. He said that HEC is one of the top business schools in Canada. He plans on taking administration in university.

Moses spent five years with Les Aigles de l’école secondaire de l’Amitié (RSEQ) before spending four with Les Triades du Cégep regional de Lanaudière (RSEQ Division 3). In 2015, he won the ‘cinq étoiles’ trophy with Les Aigles, which is given to the student-athlete who performed the most both in class and on the field during their five years of high school. Last season he was named as a Division 3 all-star and this year he was renamed to the all-star team. He was also named offensive lineman of the year.

With the Carabins in his sights, Moses said, “I’m super excited to join one of the best football teams in the country!”

When you’ve been playing football for ten years, you are bound to meet some former teammates in university. “I know several players with whom I played (with) in the past years (on the Carabins) and I have already been coached by some of the coaches,” Paul-Antoine Ouellette said. “I know they are amazing coaches and I know they will succeed in developing the best of my abilities.”

Ouellette, who is interested in security and police studies, added that Montréal was the only school that offered the program he wants to take.

In high school, Ouellette played with Les Sphinx de Jacques-Rousseau (RSEQ). His cégep team is Les Nomades du Collège Montmorency (RSEQ Division 1). In his last year of high school, back in 2014, he was an RSEQ all-star. Standing at 6’2, 215lbs, he is from Longueuil, Québec.
