Laval commits ready to earn spot on team

Laval welcomes two commits from Montréal, Québec.

As fifth-year players move on from the team, CFC60 linebacker Darren Kyeremeh and CFC60 defensive lineman Arnold Mbembe from Vanier College are ready to fill in the gaps they will leave behind on the Laval Rouge et Or roster.

CFC60 Darren Kyeremeh

For Darren Kyeremeh, Laval was just what he was looking for. “The program fit me well and will get me ready for the next level in football and in academics,” the potential criminology student said. “The coaches (also) know how to prepare their players both physically and mentally.”

A product Montréal, Québec, Kyeremeh has played with the Vanier College Cheetahs (RSEQ Division 1), Les Faucons de Dorval Jean-XXIII (RSEQ) and the North Shore Lions (NSFL). The 6’0, 220lbs player is a two-time all-star in 2016 and 2017.

CFC60 Arnold Mbembe

For Arnold Mbembe, choosing Laval was pretty simple. “(They’re the) best team in Canada and veterans are leaving spots open,” he said. “The head coach is (also) the defensive line coach, so I have the opportunity to learn.”

The 6’6, 240lbs defensive end spent three years with the Cheetahs. Mbembe, who is from Montréal, also played with the Aces from 2006 to 2010 and the Sun Youth Hornets (QMFL) from 2011 to 2014. He is a back-to-back champion with the Hornets in 2013 and 2014. Although he missed one semester of football with the Cheetahs, he was a 2017 all-star and a Bol d’Or finalist.
