Lou de Boe is already familiar with football in Canada, but now he will get a taste of it at a higher level. “I’m going to Sherbrooke because it’s one of the best universities for school and also for sport,” he said. “The town is beautiful with the little mountain and it’s not far from Montréal.”

For Benjamin Rhéaume, he said going to Sherbrooke is the best decision for him financially. But there is much more to his commitment than that. “I like the energy of the coaching staff, the guys and what they are building. I always liked being the underdog and proving people wrong and I felt that Sherbrooke would be the best fit in order for me to do so,” he said.

“The coaches care for their players and I appreciated that a lot also. I’ve been coached before by Coach Chapdelaine and I really enjoy his type and methods. Head Coach Lecompte is very motivated and on a mission and I like his vision,” Rhéaume added.


Standing at 6’0, 185lbs, Rhéaume is interested in either business and administration or psychology.

Despite being from Montréal, Québec, Rhéaume has spent most of his live living Sherbrooke, Québec. In high school he played with Les Harfangs de l’école secondaire du Triolet (RSEQ). He then joined the Champlain College Lennoxville Cougars (RESQ Division 1). In 2017 he helped the Cougars win a Bol d’Or. During his final year with Les Harfangs, he was offensive player of the year and was all the Division 1 all-star team.
