Cornwall recruit makes Mount Allison new gridiron home (VIDEO)

Cornwall quarterback joins AUS team’s 2016 class.

Jakob Loucks will be commencing his CIS career in New Brunswick.

This past week, the 5’10, 187 pound quarterback from Cornwall, Ontario committed to the Mount Allison Mounties. Loucks will join the team for the 2016 AUS season.

For his part, it was simple choice to opt for the Mounties.  It also didn’t hurt that the Mounties pursued the pivot for quite some time as well.

“Mount Allison made my decision very easy with their renowned academics, athletics, and fan base, commented Loucks.  “Their interest and recruitment in me showed me how interested they were.”

Once the Ontario pivot took in his official visit, his experience at the Sackville, New Brunswick campus solidified his commitment to the Mounties.

“During their season I hopped on a plane and flew out to New Brunswick,” recalled Loucks.  “The moment I got off the plane, I felt welcomed by the Mountie family.”

“I stayed over for one night, but that’s all it took. In my one day there, I met the most tight knit football family, experienced the Mounties in action against St. Mary’s, and was overwhelmed by their fan base. For a very small town, they have the greatest fan base supporting them.”

Loucks was even more impressed by what unfolded soon after his official visit.

“About three weeks after my trip, the new Head Coach, Scott Brady and Offensive Coordinator Gaetan Richard, were at the Vanier meeting in Quebec City,” continued the Cornwall quarterback.  “On their drive home they stopped in my hometown, Cornwall, Ontario and presented me with a scholarship.”

“The scholarship definitely grabbed my attention, but I think the opening at the quarterback position grabbed my attention the most. Quarterback Brandon Leyh is in his fifth year and has been a five year starter, so it’s anyone position to win come camp.”

Among the teams Loucks has played for in his career include Cornwall Wildcats of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), St. Joseph’s Panthers of the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (EOSSAA), OVFL’s Cumberland Panthers, Niagara Football Academy Spartans and Canisius High School Crusaders in Buffalo, New York.

During his time with the Crusaders, he guided the team to a Catholic State Championship.
