Montréal commit feels he belongs with team

Montréal adds a local recruit to their 2018 class.

Ryth-Jean Giraud, an athlete from Vanier College, won’t be alone when the joins the University of Montréal Carabins.

“I decided to commit to Montréal because this is where I felt I really belong since I know a couple of guys I played with over there,” Giraud said. “But, I think the major thing that really played into my decision is the fact I could develop myself into a better football player and have an impact on the team.”

Indeed, it will be the Carabins’ coaches who will be directing Giraud onto the right path. “The coaches in Montréal are good coaches and I really felt like I could go towards them for any kind of situation outside of football where they could help, which you don’t find this anywhere at this level,” he said.

Giraud, who is 5’1, 200lbs, is interested in taking health education in relation to sport. He spent three years playing with the Vanier Cheetahs (RSEQ Division 1) as a running back and slotback in his hometown of Montréal, Québec.
