Limoilou Titan commits to University of Montréal

Carabins bring in thirteenth commit.

Sometimes all the pieces just fall into place. Ask Olivier Paquet-Brisson, a defensive end from Cégep Limoilou, and he will probably say the same thing after committing to the Montréal Carabins.

Paquet-Brisson will be travelling down the St. Lawrence River from his hometown of Québec City to reach Montréal. He was drawn to the Carabins because he felt the team, and the school, were the right fits for him.

“For a football perspective, Montréal is one of the best teams in the country and I will have the chance to compete at my first year,” he said.

“For a scholar perspective, the administration program at Montréal is one of the greatest in Canada too. Between each university who I talked to, Montréal was the only one who were able to offer me this level of football and studies at the same time,” Paquet-Brisson added.

The University of Montréal has so much to offer a young football player. But, it’s appeal also steams a little bit deeper than competitiveness and academics. “I think that Montréal is a big family. That’s what the coaching staff is based on I think. Every coach is familiar to every player in the team. I think its a big part of their success. That is what I was looking for,” Paquet-Brisson said.

Standing at 6’3, 230lbs, Paquet-Brisson spent his high school career with the Laser de l’école des Sentier (Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec). In his five years at the school, he was named to the RSEQ all-star team in 2011, 2012 and 2013. This year, while with the Titans du Cégep Limoilou (RSEQ Division 1), he was given another all-star recognition.
