#CFCOPC QB Langlois a general on the field

The young #CFCOPC quarterback is open to all considerations.

In the game of football, a quarterback must be a general on and off the field, but they must also rely on their teammates to protect and help them. You don’t need to teach Ben Langlois, a quarterback for the St. Maximillian Kolbe Mustangs (York Regional Athletics Association), any of this.

In Langlois’s seven-year career, he has played with the York Simcoe Bucs, which are the current York Region Lions (Ontario Varsity Football League), the Mustangs and was the starting quarterback for Team Central at the #CFCOPC Ontario Prospects All-star game that was held at TD Place in Ottawa. In 2013, he was named the Mustangs junior team MVP. The following year, he was the Mustangs senior team Offensive MVP and the team’s overall MVP.

The young quarterback is a proven leader on the field, having been a team captain on the Mustangs in 2013, 2014 and 2015. He was also a team captain of the Bucs in 2015. In the spring of 2016, he was named the starting quarterback for the OVFL JV all-star game.

Last season, the Mustangs found themselves playing in the York Region senior football Tier 1 championship game versus the Huron Heights Warriors. Although the Mustangs lost, Langlois cites the game as a highlight of last season. “To see all my family and friends and all the people there watching, it was truly an amazing feeling. Playing in a game like that is indescribable and I was so happy to share that with my teammates,” he said.

Langlois added that with the Bucs, his highlight was throwing over 300 yards and four touchdowns in each game versus the Cumberland Panthers (OVFL) and the Myers Riders (OVFL), which are two of Ontario’s top teams. He said that he was fortunate to finish the season with the leading statistics in the OVFL. He led all quarterbacks with 1840 yards passing and 21 passing touchdowns in 8 games.

Currently set to graduate next year, Langlois said he is open to all opportunities to play as a quarterback in either a CIS or NCAA school. He attended a high school football camp at the University of Western and he plans on attending more camps when they become available. He said that he really enjoyed his experience at Western’s training camp with the great players and coaches.

“School is very important to me and my grades are a high priority. I plan to attend university and I am currently considering to study engineering or business. I would love to play football at the professional level some day,” Langlois said of his future plans. As far as recruitment goes, he said he has had a few preliminary discussions and he looks forward to further communications in the near future.

As far as his leading OVFL statistics and on-field success goes, Langlois knows none of it would be possible without the hard work of his coaches and teammates. “I believe that family, coaches and teammates are most influential in both football and life. Coaches and teammates are influential in both because football teaches you lots of life lessons throughout the game and it’s like you are apart of a second family with your team,” he said.

“Family is influential in both football and life because they support you no matter what and provide you with guidance and confidence,” Langlois added.

Currently, the young football player belongs to a community gym and during the summer, he trains through a program given to him by his high school coach, Joe Gaudio. He said he also uses his school gym and trains both during the football season and offseason. His regimens surround working on strength, conditioning and agility.

“I plan to continue to train, play high school football, rep football and attend quarterback specific camps such as QB Nation. I also plan to learn from a mentor who is a former quarterback at my school,” Langlois said.
