The 6′ 310 lbs giant, who just helped Canada bring back the Gold medal from China, committed to the Carabins on July 17th.

Pier-Olivier, born in St-Eustache, played hockey for most of his childhood. He then transferred to football under the influence of his coach, Jean Beaudet, who initiated him to the rigours of the sport. Frédéric Cousineau at la Polyvalente Deux-Montagnes, where he played his high-school football, was also a contributor to help number 66 keep his marks up and proceed to the CEGEP level.


A member of the all-star team of the Juvenile Division 1B his last year with the Centurions, Lestage was highly recruited. Winning the last two Bol D’Or’s with the Géants du Cégep de St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Pier-Olivier is excited to make the switch to CEGEP division 1 and help his team win.

Yes, winning is a must for this athlete who will do just about anything to finish with a W. Nominated for Rookie of the Year in his first season with the Géants, Pier-Olivier was also selected for the Quebec Team that won the 2014 Canada Cup in Saskatchewan.

He is well aware of the efforts needed in the weight room and has devoted many hours preparing his physique. Earning a spot on the Junior National team roster was a reward for his hard work and, most obviously, his attitude. He considers himself a physical player and likes the collision aspect of the game.

With a 72, 5 % GPA, this social sciences student athlete is aiming at the Phys. Ed program offered at l’université de Montréal and with the dream of playing pro someday. But for now, he wants to focus on his team’s first season in the top division in CEGEP football.
