MTA intelligent coaches attract 3

MTA adds two local commits and one out-of-province commit to their 2019 class.

Hayden Tripp, a running back from Arnprior High School, and CFC100 free safety Lucas Cormier and quarterback Justin Vogels from Tantramar High School know they are in good hands with the Mount Allison Mounties.

Hayden Tripp

Hailing from Arnprior, Ontario, Hayden Tripp is drawn to close-knit communities. “I’m from a small town in Arnprior and Mount Allison made me feel like home away from home,” he said. “(They have) great, smart coaches, can’t wait to work with them.”

Tripp, who 5’11, 200lbs, is interested in psychology.

Tripp’s career has spanned 12 seasons. He has played with the Ottawa Myers Riders (OPFL), the West Carleton Wolverines (NCAFA), the Arnprior Rapids (CSHSFL) and the Ottawa Sooners (OFC). He played in the 2015 Fox 40 Prospect Challenge as well. He is a four-time provincial champion and he also won an OFSAA Bowl in 2017.

CFC100 Lucas Cormier

For Lucas Cormier, there is no place like home. “I felt that what is going on at MTA right now sets the team up very well for the years to come and I felt there was a lot of opportunity there,” he said. “That, paired with the fact that it’s a short five-minute drive away from my house, made it feel like an easy choice in the end!”


Cormier added that each day he is getting to know more of the coaching staff. “Every day I get even more confident in all of them,” he said. “They all know a lot about football and are all very dedicated to do what needs to be done to win this year.”

The 6’2, 195lbs defensive back and safety is planning on taking psychology.

A member of the Tantramar Titans (NBIAA), he is a four-time provincial champion. He was also the NBIAA league MVP in 2018.

Justin Vogels

A local boy, Justin Vogels is already familiar with his new team. “(It’s a) good fit for both football and academics. Also, it’s in my hometown, so it works really well,” the product of Sackville, New Brunswick, said.

He added that the coaches are “a smart group who seem to genuinely care about their players and want to help me be the best football player I can be.”

Vogels, who is interested in commerce, has been a member of the Titans since 2015. Standing at 5’9, 165lbs, he is a four-time provincial champion and two-time all-star in 2017 and 2018.

Quick to redirect the attention Vogels said, “I would like to thank all the coaches I’ve had in my career to make it to this point.”
