Dionne has been playing the game since the age of 12 when he entered high school at Collège-St-Anne-de-la-Pocatière, where he suited up for the Wisigoths. In his fifth and final season, the Wisigoths took home the RSEQ inter-regional championship. In high school, he was awarded a team MVP award one one occasion.

During that time, he also played for the Rive-Sud de Quebec Spalding Cup team. In his first year, the squad one the gold medal, and followed that up by losing the bronze medal game in 2012.

Throughout his career, Dionne has seen time as a linebacker, offensive and defensive lineman, tailback, quarterback and wide receiver.


Dionne said his highlight from last season was getting the chance to face one of Levis-Lauzon’s fiercest rivals.

“My highlight was when I played vs CNDF beacause I have a brother who’s played at Lévis-Lauzon before me,” he said. “Because of my brother, I saw the rivalry between the two teams. So when I played against them, I was super excited.”

He credits his brother for fostering his love of the game.”

“The most influential person in my life is my brother because he gave me the passion I have for football,” Dionne mentioned. “I also look up to Ray Lewis because he is such a great, inspiring athlete.”


CEGEP recrutiment was a relatively stress-free process for the versatile Faucons stud.

“The recruitment process was pretty easy for me because my choice of CEGEP was already made in my head,” elaborated Dionne.

As for a training routine, he tends to hit the gym between three and four times a week, while also partaking in about two plyometric runs and a couple of equipment practices. To prepare for the 2016 season, Dionne says he is going to “continue to go to the gym, eat right, and doing all my stuff at school.”

The 2018 graduate is still undecided about a possible career path, and does not have any CIS visits lined up at this point.
