Carabins “most advantageous” for CEGEP recruit’s situation (VIDEO)

CEGEP defensive back joins RSEQ team’s 2016 class.

It’s a great time in Guillaume D’Anjou’s gridiron career.

This past week, the 5’11, 170 pound defensive back (cornerback) from Levis, Quebec committed to the Montreal Carabins.  D’Anjou will join the team for the 2016 RSEQ season.

While he is ecstatic about the final outcome, it wasn’t an easy decision.

“I am very pleased to join the Montreal Carabins this winter,” commented D’Anjou.  “After visiting all the other programs I was considering, it was clear in my mind that Montreal was where I wanted to go.”

“I wanted to give every team its chance to “sell” me their program. It was a big decision for me because it also means leaving my hometown and be further from my family and friends.”

However, it was extremely important for the defensive standout to make a decision before he heads into the postseason with CEGEP Division 1 team, Levis-Lauzon Faucons.

“With the Faucons, we are having our best season since our arrival in Division 1 four years ago,” explained D’Anjou.  “Personally, the season is also going well but my goal for this final year with the team is to win as a team.”

“We have everything and everything is in place to win the Bol D’Or.  I wanted to take my decision before we enter the playoffs to have nothing to concentrate and stress about other than winning a Bol D’Or with my CEGEP team.”

When he visited the Universite de Montrreal, D’Anjou was impressed with everything he encountered during his time there and is looking forward to his future with the Carabins.

“I really enjoyed my visits at Montreal University,” recalled the defensive back, who previously played for Levis College Commanders.  “The coaching staff is very professional, brought me a family feeling and showed me that they wanted to work with me and help me on the football and on the scholar aspect.”

“The team is also doing very well and the ambiance on the team is nice. I have some friends from the Faucons who are going there and my feeling was that I would be happy there too. On the scholar aspect, the university is also very great and it is the place where my chances of getting accepted in medicine were the highest.  School has always been one of the most important aspects in my life and Montreal University was the most advantageous one for my situation.”
