Dalhousie Tiger commits to SMU

Saint Mary’s welcomes AFLer to their 2017 class.

To reach his new team, all that receiver Louis Gauvin has to do is walk down the street. The former Dalhousie Tigers (Atlantic Football League) is now joining the dog-pack after committing to the Saint Mary’s University Huskies.

“There were a lot of contributing factors to me deciding to play for SMU. Following an undefeated championship season with Dal this fall I was driven to test my potential. SMU allows me to stay in Halifax and finish my degree at Dalhousie,” Gauvin said, who is currently completing a management and globalization degree.

“On the football side, I feel that Head Coach Colzie is building something special at SMU, and to be a part of it is an exciting opportunity. The Saint Mary’s Coaching staff has left a great impression on me. I believe they have a great vision for the program moving forward and are motivated to see it through,” he added.

Standing at 6’4, 225lbs, Gauvin’s main position is receiver, however, he has had reps as a tight end, slotback, and wide receiver. While he displays versatility on the field, he has had a history of athleticism off the gridiron. He played junior high school football in grade nine and ten before attending Trinity College in Port Hope, Ontario. After grade ten, he played cricket, soccer and captained the hockey team. Although he has moved all over Canada, he spent his high school years in Courtice, Ontario, which is outside Oshawa.

In his decorated, athletic history, Gauvin was the 2015 Dalhousie Football Club Most Improved Player. In 2016, he was a co-captain and the team won the AFL Moose Head Cup with an undefeated season.

“The Dalhousie football staff has done a tremendous job in helping me to get to where I am now,” Gauvin said. “I look forward to working and continuing to grow as an athlete under Coach Colzie and his excellent staff at the next level.”
