Mount Allison Mounties snatch three offensive recruits

The Mount Allison Mounties have shored up their offensive unit with the commitment of three recruits to their football program.

Rodreke Joseph, Jeremie Lebans and Treyvon Small have joined the Mounties for the 2013 AUS season.



The 6’2, 220 pound wide receiver from Toronto, Ontario comes to the Mounties after a successful career with the Calgary Colts of the Prairie Football Conference in the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL).

Rodreke’s style of play is something the Mounties will welcome to their offensive game plan in 2013.

“Rodreke is a very talented player who will be a great fit in our offensive scheme,” commented Mounties defensive coordinator Scott Brady  “He is a big, strong, athletic receiver who is extremely difficult to cover one on one.”

“We love the way he attacks the ball in the air and his combination of size and speed allows him to stretch the defense vertically and very difficult to tackle after the catch.  He catches the ball extremely well and he is a guy who will force defenses to make some decisions about how they choose to cover him which will only make our offense more explosive.”

The 5’11, 185 pound pivot from Moncton, New Brunswick joins the Mounties after completing his high school career with the Odyssee Olympiens of the New Brunswick High School Football League (NBHSFL).  In seven games during the 2012 season with the Olympiens, Jeremie amassed 975 passing yards and 12 passing touchdowns.  Moreover, he registered 950 rushing yards and nine touchdowns and two interceptions.  For his exceptional play on the field, he was named NBHSFL Offensive Player of the Year and Olympiens Offensive MVP.

This past July, Jeremie represented his home province at the 2012 Football Canada Cup as a member of Team New Brunswick.  His experience with the coaching staff at this tournament is partly why he committed to the Mounties.

“One of the reasons that I committed to Mount Allison is because I am very familiar with the coaching staff,” said Jeremie.  “I had the opportunity to learn from many coaches from Mount Allison this summer as some were part of the Team New-Brunswick under-18 football program that I was honored to be a part of.”

“I learned a lot over the summer and the coaches know what I am capable of. I am looking forward to being a part of the Mounties football program come this fall. As far as studies go, Mount Allison has the program I would like to study in and is an amazing undergraduate school. I am very excited to study at one of the best universities in Canada while still being very close to home.”

Mutually excited of Jeremie’s decision is the Mounties.

“Jeremie is a natural leader with a very good demeanor for a quarterback,” commented Mounties defensive coordinator Scott Brady.  “He understands the game very well and carries himself in a way that allows the entire offense to stay relaxed and play to their full potential.”

“Jeremie did a great job leading Team New Brunswick in last summer’s Football Canada Cup and we are excited about what he will bring to the Mountie family.”

The 6’2, 195 pound wide receiver from Milton, Ontario recently suited up for Bishop Reding Royals of the Halton Secondary School Athletic Association (HSSAA). Moreover, he’s previously played for the Halton Crimson Tide, where he scored five touchdowns and over 20 catches in the 2012 season.

Overall, Treyvon was impressed with the recruitment efforts of the AUS team as well as the small school size and the strength of the football program.

“The Mounties have shown great interest in me for quite some time now,” said Treyvon.  “They have demonstrated that they care about me on and off the field on many occasions.”

“While visiting the university, I was able to experience the closeness of the players and the coaches and instantly felt like I was a part of the family, something that was very important in deciding what team I wanted to play for. The student to professor ratio is 16 to 1, I don’t know if it gets any better then that. With the small school size I will be able to get more attention and direction from my teachers. As far as football goes. The Mounties are a young and very talented squad across the board from brilliant coaches to very athletic and determined players. I know that this is the team for me. They are going to get a really good receiver who’s looking to take his game to the next level and I am confident that they are going to mold me into an amazing CIS athlete.”

The Mounties are looking forward to the opportunity to work with Treyon for the next few years.

“Treyvon is another big bodied receiver who will present a difficult matchup for opposing defenses,” added Brady.   “He’s a very good athlete, is quick in and out of his breaks, and he catches the ball extremely well.”

“We are very excited to get him into our program to help him develop his game and feel that he has a very bright future as a Mountie.”
