By Maxime Bellmare.

When Jérémié Kankolongo heads to Montréal, Québec, it will be a homecoming of sorts. “I decided to commit to Montréal due to the fact that it just felt like the right place for me,” he said. “It had everything for me academically and athletically. As well, I love Montréal since I was actually born five minutes away from the CEPSUM Stadium (the team’s home field) at Hospital St-Justine.”

Kankolongo added that he also has a lot of family scattered around Montréal, which helped him with his decision.

Speaking of family, Kankolongo has found one amongst the Carabins’ coaches. “Montréal has an amazing coaching staff as you can tell from the success of this team,” he said. “I really connected with the coaches because they bring a family-type environment to the team. As well, I’m very excited to play for Coach Cousineau’s offence.”

Before moving back to Québec to play with the Champlain College Lennoxville Cougars (RSEQ Division 1), Kankolongo lived in Maple Ridge, British Columbia. There he played with the Terry Fox Secondary School Ravens (BCSSFA) from 2013 to 2017. He has won a provincial championship with the Ravens in 2016 and a Bol d’Or with the Cougars in 2017. Standing at 6’0, 205lbs, he is interested in taking business.

With a new career dawning, Kankolongo said, “I am very excited to see what’s to come in the next 4 years!”
