Queens welcomes a highly decorated quarterback to their Class of 2017.
It didn’t take long for FPC Ben Langlois, a quarterback from St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic High School, to jump on board with the mentality of the Queen’s University Gaels.
“Following my experience attending Queen’s football camp and my visit and tour of the campus, I instantly fell in love with the sense of community at Queen’s,” Langlois said. “All the coaches have made me feel welcome and have shown support for me.”
During last summer’s football camp, Langlois had the opportunity to work with the Queen’s bench bosses. He forged a closer relationship with Head Coach Pat Sheahan and quarterback coach Alex Vertullo.
“Coach Sheahan has a longstanding history with Queen’s and his experience will be invaluable during my development,” Langlois said. He added that he values Vertullo’s focus on quarterback fundaments.
Hailing from Aurora, Ontario, Langlois said, “I was drawn towards Queen’s over all my university options because of their high academic standards and their football program’s rich history and winning tradition.”
Langlois, who will be entering the school’s engineering program, added that he is confident that Queen’s has one of the best programs in the country. “It will help me succeed in the future,” he said.
Standing at 5’11, 200lbs, Langlois has been playing football since the age of ten. He has suited up with the York Region Bucs/Lions (OVFL) and the St. Maximilian Kolbe Mustangs (York Region Athletics Association). This past season, the three-time Mustang captain won the “Mustang Man” award for leadership in athletics, academics and community representation.
His 2016 season was far more eventful that just that. He was the Canada Top Prospects Combine MVP and a YRAA all-star. He also holds the Mustangs’ single season touchdown record with 14 (2016) and passion yards with 1547 yards (2015)
A year prior, he was a captain of the York Region Lions. He led Ontario in quarterback rating with 1840 passing yards and 21 touchdowns. He was also a OVFL and YRAA all-star.
Never content on settling, Langlois is always looking to improve. “I look forward to working with the coaches and improving my game as a member of the Queen’s football team,” he said. “I can’t wait to begin my journey!”
