Postill comes to the Mounties after playing for both the St. Roch Ravens of the Region of Peel Secondary School Athletic Association (ROPSSAA) and Brampton Bulldogs of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL).

During his career, the offensive lineman has received several honours.  This past season alone (2014), those honors included Ravens Senior Team MVP, Ravens Senior Linemen of the Year and Bulldogs Varsity Linemen of the Year.

Upon his commitment to the Mounties, Postill issued the following statement:

“Why Mount Allison? Simple – there was no other post-secondary educational institution that I considered which combined the high level of academics with the supportive, close-knit culture of Mount A.”

“I achieve my best results in a smaller atmosphere where individual strengths, interests and challenges are understood and met. With Mount A offering a small student-to-Professor ratio and being ranked the country’s number one undergraduate school, it was the frontrunner. I knew I’d thrive in a place that offers a significant level of academic support, combined with a community of people willing to assist.”

“Academic motivation aside, what clinched the deal was the great vibe I got from the football program and coaching staff. I felt an instant synergy meeting Coach Gaetan Richard (Mounties Offensive Coordinator), confident he will push me to become an amazing football player and even better student.”

“I visited several schools but none other could compare. It was clear that Mount Allison doesn’t just have a team; it has a large, close-knit family of players, coaches and academic staff.”

“I can clearly envision myself there for the next four years of my life and I look forward to the experience with great anticipation. #Mountie Pride”
