Ontario commits heading east, join Mounties

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

In less than a year, defensive backs Liam Paquette from Nepean High School and Dylan Jones from King City High School will be added depth to the Mount Allison Mounties defensive core.

FPC Liam Paquette

When the 2019 season rolls around, Liam Paquette will be leaving the big city behind and moving to the east coast. “I chose Mount Allison because of the coaches and small class sizes,” he said. “I like the coaching staff and how we communicated during the process.”

Standing at 5’8, 165lbs, Paquette is from Ottawa, Ontario, where he has played out his entire 12-year career. He has suited up for the Ottawa Myers Riders (OPFL/NCAFA), the Bel-Air Lions (NCAFA) and the Ottawa Sooners (OFC). In 2017, Paquette participated in the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge game.

Paquette has accumulated his fair share of accolades in his career. He is a three-time city champion in 2014, 2015 and 2016. He also captured two OVFL championships in 2013 and 2015. He won a defensive MVP award in 2015 and was special teams player of the year in 2017. In 2017, he helped his team to a championship win and was the team’s MVP.

Paquette is interested in taking either English or Sociology.

Dylan Jones

In high school Dylan Jones played with the King City Lions (YRAA). The 6’1, 175lbs defensive back and wide receiver also played York Region Lions (OVFL). Jones is from King City, Ontario, which is north of Toronto.
