CFC100 2017 Christopher Fournier

The 6’4, 275 pound offensive lineman from Ottawa, Ontario received his first NCAA Division 1 offer way back in August.  It came courtesy of Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) team, . Making it official, Fournier is now a Mountain Hawk.

“Leading up to signing day I was getting more and more excited to finally make my dream become a reality. It will be a day of celebration because I’ll be officially committed to an excellent school and it will be a day of relief seeing that some of the hard work is starting to pay off after a long recruiting process.” he said when we asked how he was feeling leading up to signing day.

Fournier finished up playing his final season with Alexandra, Virginia high school team, Episcopal Maroon. He is a teammate of both #CFC100 second ranked Luiji Vilain (verbally committed to Michigan Wolverines) and third ranked Jonathan Sutherland (verbally committed to Penn State Nittany Lions).

When choosing Lehigh, Fournier said this, “I chose Lehigh University because it is a great fit for me athletically and academically. It was a very appealing offer to join a football program that is working hard to win another Patriot League Championship and is looking to work its way further into the playoffs. It was also very enticing to attend a respected school that is known for its engineering, especially since I intend to major in civil engineering.”

Previous to the Maroon, the offensive lineman suited up for the Cumberland Panthers of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL) as well as St. Peter Knights of the National Capital Secondary School Athletic Association (NCSSAA). He represented his home province as a member of Team Ontario at the 2014 Football Canada Cup in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, where the team won gold.

Fournier trains with Victor Tedondo at Gridiron Academy in Ottawa and has some expectations that he has already set for himself as a freshman for 2017.

“I’m looking forward to adjusting to my new life at Lehigh as a freshman. I am especially excited to get to campus in the summer to start working with my new teammates. I will be working to make an impact on the team as soon as I can knowing that there are potential spots on the offensive line that I can compete for. As far as school goes, I am excited to start my studies and become a member of the community at Lehigh.”

This past May, Fournier was included in the first edition of the CFC100 CLASS 2017 RANKINGS.
