Ravens commits add size to lines

Carleton welcomes two Québec commits to their 2019 class.

Offensive lineman Karl-Cédrick Clairmenceau from Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy and defensive lineman Felix Gagné from Collège de Valleyfield will be shoring up the lines of the Carleton Ravens for the upcoming season and beyond.

By Angel Dorvil Gelika.

Having spent the last three years in Quebec City, Québec, Karl-Cédrick Clairmenceau is itching to return to familiar waters. “I wanted to come back home and be closer to my family,” he said. “Also, the Ravens’ program is amazing from what I saw and it’s stable. That’s what I need right now.”

Clairmenceau, who is interested in either business or a computer-based program, added that, “It’s a great coaching staff. I’m excited to play for them.”

The 6’1, 275lbs product of Gatineau, Québec, played with the Mont-Bleu Panthers in high school for five seasons before joining the Le Notre-Dame du CNDF (RSEQ Division 1) for three. He received a ROY award in 2011 and was defensive player of the year in 2012. He was a two-time MVP in 2013 and 2014. The following year he was lineman of the year. He also helped Le Notre-Dame win a Bol d’Or in 2016.

Currently a left guard, Clairmenceau knows he isn’t confined to one spot. “I have a skillset and a baggage that lets me play anywhere on the line,” he said, “and now I’m just looking forward to start working and playing again.”

Felix Gagné

Felix Gagné played with Le Noir et Or du Collège de Valleyfield (RSEQ Division 2) and Le Notre-Dame in cégep. In high school he played with Les Grenadiers de Louis-Philippe Paré (RSEQ). The 6’4, 240lbs defensive end is from Châteauguay, Québec.
