Gaels coaches main plus for commits

Gaels welcome two Ontario commits and two out-of-province commits to their 2019 class.

CFC100s Erik Anderson, an offensive lineman from AB Lucas Secondary School, and Eddie Gonzalez, a defensive lineman from Trinity Pawling School, know they are right where they belong with the Queen’s Gaels.

CFC100 Sebastian Hansen, a linebacker from Mount Douglas Secondary School, and Oliver Kulik, an offensive lineman from Football North Clarkson, will also be joining the Gaels.

CFC100 Erik Anderson

For Erik Anderson, it was all about the coaches. “I chose Queen’s because of the combination of their strong academics and great football tradition and also because I really like the coaching staff they have now,” he said.

“The coaching staff is great. My relationships with many of the coaches were a big reason why I chose Queen’s and I’m really excited to have the change to work with them.”

The massive 6’6, 285lbs lineman is interested in concurrent education or arts.

Anderson, who is from London, Ontario, played with the Forest City Thunderbirds (OFC) from 2015 to 2017. He was also a member of the AB Lucas Vikings (TVRA) from 2015 to 2018. He is a two-time participant in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. He won the 2018 Dr. Jim Allen award for being London’s top lineman of the year. He was a two-time TVRA all-star in 2017 and 2018. He also helped the Vikings win two TVRA championships in 2016 and 2018.

CFC100 Eddie Gonzalez

During his recruitment, Eddie Gonzalez said he visited many great schools. But it was Queen’s that won him over. “Once I stepped foot on Queen’s (campus), I knew right away it was the school I wanted to go to,” he said. “My goal while playing prep football was to play in the States, but after weighing some pros and cons, and after some great conversations with the whole Gaels’ coaching staff, I felt comfortable making my commitment to Queen’s.”

He added that Head Coach Snyder and the staff welcomed him with open arms and that he felt the family-brotherhood feeling right away.

Before joining the Trinity Pawling Pride, Gonzalez was a member of the Vancouver College Fighting Irish (BCSSFA). He said he joined the Pride “to become a better athlete on the field and in the classroom.” He is interested in taking economics.

CFC100 Sebastian Hansen

Sebastian Hansen is from Victoria, BC. He played with the Mount Douglas Rams (BCSSAA) as an outside linebacker and wide receiver. Standing at 6’2, 175lbs, he has also played as a free safety, kicker and a punter.

Oliver Kulik

Oliver Kulik is from Football North Clarkson. Originally from Oakville, Ontario, he played with the Mississauga Warriors (OPFL) during the summer.
