Queen’s commit comfortable with team’s coaches

Queen’s welcomes a local commit to their 2019 class.

There isn’t any other place that Tommy Pendergast, a wide receiver from Holy Cross Catholic School, would rather be than with the Queen’s Gaels.

“I chose to commit to Queen’s because of its great academic reputation and the welcoming social environment on campus,” Pendergast said. He added that he plans on studying engineering at Queen’s.

In terms of football, Pendergast said, “I am very comfortable with, and have tremendous respect for, Bechmanis, D’Andrea and the rest of the returning staff.” He added that while he has yet to meet with Coach Snyder, he was able to watch Western’s offence over the past few years. “I’m excited to work with him and learn from him,” he said.

At a towering 6’6, 205lbs, Pendergast hails from Kingston, Ontario. He was a member of both the Holy Cross Crusaders (KASSAA) and the Kingston Grenadiers (OPFL). He spent three years with the Grenadiers. While with the Crusaders, Pendergast helped his team win four KASSAA championships and the 2018 OFSAA Eastern Bowl. “I was fortunate to be a part of some great teams at Holy Cross,” he said.
