When Alexandre Prévost when for his visit, he probably didn’t know what to expect. “I chose Bishops because I was very surprised by my experience when I visited. I’m also confident with the progress of the team for the future,” he said. “These coaches can really help me develop to be the best player I can be.”

Prévost, who is from Gatineau, Québec, is interested in sports studies.

Standing at 5’8, 180lbs, Prévost spent five years with his high school team, Les Tigres d’Hormisdas-Gamelin (RSEQ) and two with Les Cheminots du Cégep de Saint-Jérôme (RSEQ Division 3). He won four regional championships in high school. In his final year, he was player of the year. Last season, while with Les Cheminots, he was named as a defensive MVP. He was also a 2018 all-star.

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, Knight spent his youth growing up in Valance, France. He then made the decision to purse his education, and his football career, in Canada. “I’ve heard great things from people who have been there and from articles. The school is supposed to be awesome and it’s in English,” he said. He is interested in environmental studies.

“The new defensive coordinator, Fabrice, has a lot of experience (and he has) coached the Carabins and played in the States,” added Knight, who is 6’1, 175lbs. “The head coach also has a lot of good history.”

Knight, who was born to a Swedish mother and English father, spent five years with Les Sharks de Valence (FFFA). He then joined Les Filons de Thetford (RSEQ Division 2). After a year there, he went to another cégep team, Les Vulkins du Cégep de Victoriaville (RSEQ Division 3).

With a new adventure waiting for him, Knight said, “Can’t wait to compete in Canadian university football.”

First and foremost, Kousaie was looking at school. He is interested in doing a double major in secondary education and physics. He said he chose Bishops because it had the program he was looking for. “It is also a small community that is very close and a beautiful place (that) made me feel comfortable,” he added.

The 6’2, 285lbs centre also said that the coaches have a lot of experience and “knowledge about the game and (they) know what it takes to win.”

Kousaie started his career at the tender age of eight. He played with Les Cougars de St-Léonard from 2007 to 2015. He then joined the Vanier Cheetahs (RSEQ Division 1) in 2016 and has played with them ever since. The product of Montréal, Québec, has attended multiple football camps in his career, including the Bruno Huppell camp, the Junior Alouette camp and the OD Football Camp. He was also a part of Team Québec at the 2015 Spaulding Cup. He won a silver medal with the team and has received several MVP awards.
