Golden Hawks coaches ‘very friendly’ to commits

Laurier adds two Ontario commits to their 2019 class.

Colton Longboat, a defensive tackle from McKinnon Park High School, and Domenic Montalbano, a wide receiver from Holy Cross High School, will be taking flight with the Laurier Golden Hawks for the 2019 season and beyond.

Colton Longboat

A resident of Caledonia, Ontario, Colton Longboat is ready for a change of scenery. “I chose Laurier because it just felt like it suited me. It felt like home. The campus was absolutely amazing. I loved it,” he said.

“The coaching staff was very friendly towards me when I went on my visit,” he added. “I feel like I can get really good coaching there.”

A towering 6’6, 295lbs, Longboat primarily plays as an offensive and defensive tackle. He played for the McKinnon Park Blue Devils (HNFL), the Brantford Bisons (OFC) and the Hamilton Varsity Tiger-Cats (OFC). In 2015 and 2016 he helped the Blue Devils win a HNFL title. He is interested in sociology.

Domenic Montalbano

When it comes down to it, Domenic Montalbano’s goal is simple. “At the end of the day I have one goal, to play pro ball, and with the numbers Laurier puts into the draft each year, dying to live up, knew this was the spot” he said.

“I decided on Laurier because of the rich tradition established amongst the players and coaches, players putting in work and coaching staff not going anywhere, all want to win,” he added.

Interested in studying international education, Montalbano said that he chose the school because “is an academically sound school” as well.

Montalbano spent his high school career with the Holy Cross Crusaders (KASSAA) in his hometown of Kingston, Ontario. He was athlete of the year in grade 12. Standing at 6’0, 187lbs, he also played with the Kingston Grenadiers (OPFL).
