MTA puts faith in three commits

Mounties add three out-of-province commits to their 2019 class.

The 2019 season couldn’t come fast enough for athlete Dejuan Jackson Williams from St. Marguerite d’Youville Secondary School, who is itching to show the Mount Allison Mounties what he can do.

Chris Costigan, an offensive lineman from Nantyr Shores Secondary School, and athlete Andrew Warner from King City High School will also be joining the Mounties.

Dejuan Jackson Williams

Dejuan Jackson Williams is on a mission, to show the league just how good he is. “It will be a great, new experience being far away from home,” Williams said. “(There are) two coaches (there) who truly believe in my abilities and want to see me become the best student and football player I could be.”

He added that the coaching staff is “absolutely outstanding. I love what they have going with their team, great group of guys with some real talent on their hands. Simply put, they never overlooked me.”

Williams is also keen on taking advantage of the school’s educational aspects. He said the school has a solid academic program. He is interested in sociology and psychology.

Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Williams played two seasons with the St. Marguerite d’Youville Panthers (ROPSSAA) and four with the Etobicoke Eagles (OVFL). The 5’9, 160lbs free safety won an OVFL championship in 2017 and was a team MVP in 2015.

“Mount Allison believed in me when a lot of other teams didn’t,” Williams said. “A lot of those teams are gonna regret that.”

Chris Costigan

Chris Costigan has played for Huronia Stallions and the Nantyr Shore Tritons (SCAA). While with the Tritons, Costigan won a SCAA and GBSSA championship in 2017. The 6’0, 275lbs lineman has played as a guard.

Andrew Warner

Andrew Warner currently calls King City, Ontario, home. There he was a member of the King City Lions (YRAA) and the York Region Lions (OVFL). Standing at 5’10, 170lbs, he has also played as a long snapper.
