MTA invested in their commits

Mounties add two New Brunswick commits and one out-of-province commit to their 2019 class.

Linebacker Deegan Farrell from St. Stephen High School knows he has found a place on the Mount Allison Mounties.

Receiver Talon Horst from St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School and defensive lineman Christopher Setchell from Saint John High School will also be joining the Mounties.

Deegan Farrell

The Mounties wasted no time making sure Deegan Farrell understood he was wanted. “The main reason I chose Mount Allison was (that) the coaches took interest and talked to me a lot more than other schools,” he said. “It seems like more of a family dynamic in the team where as to other schools I seem to be more of a number to them.”

He added that, “I already like the coaches. They seem very invested in what they’re doing and come across as a great group to play under.”

Standing at 6’2, 200lbs, Farrell is interested in taking chemistry. He said, “That has always been my favourite subject in school and I am very interested in it.”

Farrell spent five years with the St. Stephen Silverados (NBHSFL) in his hometown of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. He also spent three seasons with the St. Stephen Spartans. He is a three-time NBHSFL all-star. He was a league defensive MVP and league MVP. In 2018 he helped his team to a championship win off an undefeated season.

Talon Horst

Talon Horst is from Tottenham, Ontario, where he played with the St. Thomas Aquinas Stingers (GBSAA). He was named to the 2018 Nissan all-Canadian TITAN team where he was described as, “an intelligent ‘old school’ two-way player; on offense as the Aquinas Football starting quarterback and on defense as the starting cornerback.” The 5’11, 165lbs athlete also played with the York Region Lions (OVFL).

Christopher Setchell

Christopher Setchell is from Saint John, New Brunswick. He played with Saint John Greyhounds (NBHSFL) and was an all-star. He stands at 6’3, 270lbs.
