Mounties introduce first wave of 2018 commits

Mounties add 12 commits to their 2018 class.

While the Mount Allison Mounties were navigating the recruitment waters without a head coach for most of the year, they are ready to make a splash with their new head coach, Peter Fraser, and their first wave of commits.

“We are very excited to welcome these young men to the Mount Allison football family.  I would like to thank Coach Richard and Coach Hopkins for their hard work recruiting this talented group of players,” Fraser said. “I look forward to seeing them working hard both on the football field and in the class room for years to come.”
