When Michael Rochon looks at the future of the Varsity Blues, he likes what he sees.

“I chose to commit to the University of Toronto because of the school’s reputation and great education, plus the team is so young. The program has lots of winning seasons ahead,” Rochon says. “U of T also has amazing facilities that got me sold on the program.”

Rochon is no stranger to his positional coach either. He said that coach Joe Cappiello, the team’s defensive line coach, has coached him before. “I felt comfortable being under his wing for the next four to five years,” he explains. “The U of T coaching staff has been very welcoming, and ever since Greg Marshall took over as head coach, the team has been on the rise.”

From 2014 to 2016, Rochon played with the Mississauga Warriors (OPFL). Since 2017, he has played for West Toronto Prep. “Being apart of West Toronto Prep the last three years playing against top American competition has turned me into a better player,” he says. “I can’t wait to bring that back to the north side of the border.”

The 6’2″, 230lbs defensive end has played for the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge as a member of Team Central. In 2017, he was named as the defensive MVP. He is interested in studying either criminology and sociology or political science.

Alongside his praise for West Toronto Prep, Rochon has some other factors in his life he would like to attribute to his success. “If it weren’t for my mom, dad, brother and CFC100 Tyrell Lawrence being by my side throughout my football career, I wouldn’t be where I am today.”

For Jordan Robison-Wright, the University of Toronto felt like home. “I chose U of T because I love the school. I’ve taken multiple visits there and it was amazing. Also, it is an excellent school for education,” Robinson-Wright proclaims. “I also feel I’ll be a great fit for the offence.”

He added that, “The coaches and players were also awesome when I went there, and made me feel very welcome.”

Standing at 6’1″, 190lbs, the potential kinesiology student has played for the Sault Sabercats (OFC), and the Korah Colts (NOSSA). He also participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. In 2018 and 2019, he helped his team win an OFSAA bowl. He was also a city all-star from 2015 to 2019. In 2018, he was the Sault Ste Marie ‘high school athlete of the year.’
