CFC100, Montréal Royals, DB joins hometown Carabins

Carabins bring in local recruit to their team.

CFC100 Hugo Hurtubise, a defensive back from the Montréal Royals (Québec Junior Football League), is on a mission when he joins the Montréal Carabins.

Hurtubise is coming into the Montréal locker room with one goal on his mind. “In the six years playing football, I’ve never won a championship. I’ll do whatever I need to do to bring back the Vanier Cup at l’Université de Montréal,” he said.

The 5’11, 210lbs athlete considers the Carabins to be one of the best teams in the country. “Being there for the next three years will absolutely upgrade my game physically and mentally,” he said. While he doesn’t know the coaches on a personal level, he said he knows he is in good hands with Head Coach Danny Maciocia and all the coaches after what they have done with the team in the past six years.

“Now, to be successful, we just need to follow their footsteps and work hard every single day,” the product of Lachine, Montréal, said.

Going into his seventh year of football, Hurtubise has found another passion alongside his sport of choice. “When I was 17 years old, I was introduced to educational books, such as personal growth, and I’ve been amazed to see how the human brain works and learn how to be a better human being. This is why I am going in psychology at university,” he said.

At the start of his journey, his career began with the high school team, Les Dragons du Collège Sainte-Anne (RSEQ). He played for two different cégep teams, Les Lynx du Cégep Édouard-Montpetit (RSEQ Division 2) in 2012 and Les Indiens du Collège Ahuntsic (RSEQ Division 3) in 2015 after a two-year break from school and football.

Hurtubise will have the chance to stay close to his family, friends and girlfriend, which he said was a great advantage of committing to the Carabins. “I would like to thank the Carabins for this opportunity,” he said. “I’m ready to go 100% with them and work hard.”
