Carabins return to the field this Sunday

Montreal – After months of waiting filled with resistance training, speed and agility, the Montreal Carabins are finally ready to put on the shoulder pads.

After the last season’s euphoria marked by the historic conquest of the Vanier Cup, the team now has a new face and two weeks of training camp that begins Sunday atCEPSUM which be crucial for the rest of the campaign.

“We have to use every day of our trainng camp for our training to create an identity,” said Carabins Head Coach Danny Maciocia. “This is the start of a new season with a new team and new challenges.”

“There are particularly many new players and several of them have a chance to get a job and make an impact in the coming weeks. ”

Among the recruits, #CFC100 receiver Louis-Mathieu Normandin was among the college stars in the last two seasons with the Vieux-Montreal Spartiates. #CFC100 running back Gabriel Parent has dominated the circuit with 1,116 rushing yards last year with the Montmorency Nomades. on defense, #CFC100 and former Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy (CNDF) Jean-Sébastien Bélisle also will debut with the Carabins.

“We have to work on different aspects for a short time,” said Maciocia. “Players must achieve a level of understanding of the game and high fitness.”

“Players who can quickly combine the two will have the most success.”

The timeline for establishing the Carabins game system will actually be short including the holding of a preseason game in a little more than a week as the Ottawa Gee-Gees will visit CEPSUM Sunday August 23rd.  Kickoff is 2:00pm.

The public is also invited to see the Carabins in action during training camp. The Carabins take the field on Sunday at 2:00pm and at 6:30pm from Monday to Friday.
