MTA coaches ‘welcoming and open’ in communication process

MTA adds one provincial commit and two out-of-province commits to their team.

Linebacker Spencer McLeod from Canmore Collegiate will be looking to follow his education and football goals after signing with the Mount Allison Mounties.

Defensive end Dennis Rossler from Holland College and receiver Jonathan Desrochers from l’École Saint Anne will also be joining the Mounties.

Spencer McLeod

For Spencer McLeod, going to Mount Allison allowed him to fulfil two of his dreams. “It is the only U Sports football school that had an aviation program,” he said, adding that, “All of the coaching staff at MTA have been welcoming and open in all of our communications (that) we’ve had.”

McLeod spent four seasons with the Canmore Wolverines (BSFL) in his hometown of Canmore, Alberta. The 6’2, 195lbs middle linebacker helped his team to an Alberta Bowl Tier 4 provincial championship in 2018. He had 10 tackles and set a record for tackles in that game. He also won a BSFL championship in 2017 and 2018.

Dennis Rossler

Dennis Rossler knows the value of a good education. “Mount Allison has a great student support team and also has a strong academic program,” Rossler said, who is interested in sociology.

“The coaching staff is really great and supportive,” he added. “They are also welcoming and push you to be the best athlete on the field and to be the best student in class.”

Rossler is a current member of the Holland College Hurricanes (AFL) in Charlottetown, PEI. Before that, he played four seasons with the Toronto Jr. Argonauts (OFC). He was a 2017 OFC champion. He has also participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge. Standing at 6’2, 215lbs, he is from Toronto, Ontario.

Jonathan Desrochers

Jonathan Desrochers, who is 5’10, is form Fredericton, New Brunswick. He played with Les Castors d’École Saint Anne (NBHSFL) in high school.
