Stingers’ environment attracts 3

Concordia adds a local commit and two out-of-province commits to their team.

Jahmensky Lubin, a defensive lineman from the Westshore Rebels (CJFL) and Mateo Romano, a wide receiver from Western Canada High School, each have their own reasons for joining the Concordia Stingers, but they both have one thing in common, they want to succeed with the team.

Marko Kolarevic, a defensive lineman from Western Canada High School, will also be joining the Stingers.

Jahmensky Lubin

Originally from Montréal, Québec, Jahmensky Lubin is ready to return. “I wanted to make it to the next level. I spoke to a few schools but only Concordia really showed interest and consistently kept tabs with me over the phone, so that alone shows that a coach wants you other than just being a number on the team,” he said.

“Plus, the option of going back home was also a big reason why I felt comfortable making the decision.”

While Lubin has not met the entire coaching staff yet, he said that Brad Collison, the team’s head coach, seems like a genuine guy. “As well as their defensive line coach, Ed Philion, who is a defensive lineman CFL all-star,” he added. “Definitely could use some pointers from a pro.”

Lubin has been playing with the Westshore Rebels (CJFL) for the past year. Before that he won an MVP award with the LaSalle Warriors (RSEQ) in their championship game. Standing at 6’2, 335lbs, Lubin is interested in child and youth care education.

“I’m pretty happy with the decision I’ve made,” he said. “Eager to see what the season holds for us. Honestly feel like Concordia can help improve my game. I just want to be able to make an impact on and off the field.”

Mateo Romano

Mateo Romano is ready to experience all that Concordia University has to offer. “I chose to commit to the school because it fits my academic interests,” said Romano. He added that he also committed because of “the philosophies of the coaches and the environment the players, coaches and students create.”

The product of Calgary, Alberta, added that, “They are all very passionate and motivated to succeed and put players in the right positions to become successful”

Romano, who is interested in taking a Bachelor of Arts, played with the Calgary Falcons community football team for seven years before joining the Western Canada Redhawks (CHSAA) for three. Standing at 6’3, 185lbs, he was the 2013 ‘most outstanding defensive player’ with the pee-wee Falcons. He was also a 2018 Division 3 champion with Redhawks. The same year he was named as the team’s MVP and the school’s ‘athlete of the month’ in October.

Marko Kolarevic

Marko Kolarevic is a fellow member of the Western Redhawks. The 6’3, 223lbs defensive tackle and end is from Calgary as well.
