Ultimately, Mokenela said there were three main factors in his decision to pick the X-Men.

“I chose StFX because of the small community,” explained the defensive lineman.  “Everything is academic based and they are a killer football team.”

“A small warm community with an academic atmosphere and a team that aims for development were exactly what I’m looking for in a school and that’s exactly what StFX offers.”

While he may be relatively new to the game, Mokenela’s passion for the sport has enabled him to succeed.  It is the defensive lineman’s hope that this will extend in Antigonish.

“This is my second year playing football and I am very excited to see where my future takes me and who I will develop in to at StFX,” added Mokenela.
