Xavier Ouellet is coming home, and he couldn’t be happier. “I grew up watching them play; I grew up a fan of the Vert & Or. I also wanted to go back home. I always felt comfortable there and the new staff brought in a new philosophy in which I totally buy into,” he said.

“The new staff is dedicated, professional and very competent. Coach Boucher impressed me when I sat down with him because of his knowledge and his transparency. Coach Regimbald played in the pros and he is very dedicated to the team and to the linebackers.”

And the head coach? “Head Coach Lecompte brought in a sense of pride within the university and the city of Sherbrooke that was lost over the last couple of years,” Ouellet said. “All of this put together is the recipe for a health and winning football program.”

The 6’0, 235lbs middle linebacker has been living in Montréal, Québec, where he has played with the Vanier Cheetahs (RSEQ Division 1). Before moving, he played with Les Bulldogs de Sherbrooke and Les Harfangs de l’école secondaire du Triolet (RSEQ).

The 13-year veteran will be taking a bachelor’s in communications and marketing. His goal is to attend law school after football.
