Laval offers ‘another level of competition’ for commits

Laval welcomes a local commit and a Québec commit to their 2019 class.

Always one of the top teams in Canada, the Laval Rouge et Or promise to push commits Jean-Philippe Cordero, a quarterback from Collège d’Alma and Olivier Bamrounsavath, a receiver from Cégep Limoilou, to be their best.

Jean-Philippe Cordero

Always seeking to improve, Jean-Philippe Cordero is ready for the challenge of being a Rouge et Or. “I chose this school because I think Laval can bring me to another level of competition,” he said. “The coaching staff is awesome.”

Cordero spent five years with Les Lynx du Pavillon Wilbrod-Dufour (RSEQ) and three with Les Jeannois du Collège d’Alma (RSEQ Division 3). The 6’2, 225lbs athlete helped his high school team with a Bol d’Or in 2015. In cégep, he was named as the best quarterback in the league and was on the 2018 all-star team. Cordero, who is from Alma, Québec, is interested in physical education.

At a young age, Olivier Bamrounsavath played with the “Mini Rouge et Or,” and now it’s time to upgrade to the real thing. The product of Quebec City, Québec, said he chose Laval for a few reasons: “Staying in my hometown, the coaching staff is amazing, their winning records and, most of all, they are willing to form me as a receiver, which is interesting.”

Bamrounsavath, who has been playing for ten years, said that he has known the Rouge et Or coaches for years. He spent his entire career playing as a quarterback and has played for L’Arsenal Académie Saint-Louis (RSEQ) and Les Titans du Cégep Limoilou (RSEQ Division 1). He was Limoilou’s rookie of the year in 2016 and recognized as a RSEQ student-athlete in 2017 and 2018. Standing at 5’10, 190lbs, he is interested in architecture.
