David Foucault

Montreal – Montreal Carabins offensive lineman David Foucault attended an NFL regional evaluation camp last Saturday in Tampa Bay.

Since January, Foucault has been in Florida and continues intensive training with the goal of being approached by professional teams. This evaluation camp that was held on the Buccaneers’ training camp site is one of 20 camps organized by the NFL this winter.

The selected players will be invited to a Super camp at Ford Field in Detroit on April 12th and 13th.

“When I arrived, I was nervous and I was not sure what to expect,” said Foucault, who is 6’8 and weighs 320 pounds. “Finally, I found it really enjoyable.”

“I think I did the right thing and many people came to talk to me. It was a very challenging day, but I was well prepared. ”

Since the beginning of 2014, the 24-year-old native of LaSalle, Quebec moved to Bradenton, Florida and works with renowned physical trainer Mike Gough who had many years of experience training professional and Olympic athletes in various disciplines.  Foucault workouts twice a day, six days a week at the Athletic Edge Sports Complex where he is supervised by a positioning coach.

“I am well supported,” said Foucault who has been with the Carabins for the past four seasons. “It prepared me well for tests and exercises these evaluation camps.”

“I also had to respond well during an interview with recruiters. I compared myself to other players who have played around me and I have learned a lot by watching them work.”

Foucault returns to Montreal on March 14 and will also participate in the National CFL Combine from March 21st to 23rd in Toronto camp. He is currently is ranked as the third top prospect by CFL’s Central Scouting Bureau.
