Trohatos wants to ‘make noise’ with Vert & Or

Sherbrooke welcomes another Québec commit to their Class of 2017.

Tom Roadley Trohatos, a free safety from Champlain College Saint-Lambert, is ready to put the U Sports league on notice after singing with the University of Sherbrooke Vert & Or.

It is only about a two-hour drive from Trohatos’s hometown of Varennes, Québec to Sherbrooke. The relative proximity to home played on his choice to join the Vert & Or. “I chose Sherbrooke so my family, who as supported me for my whole career, can still be part of my career,” he said. “I (also) know this school will allow me to succeed academically and give me the opportunity to play pro.”

Trohatos, who will be studying physical education, is ready to buy into the new system the coaching staff will be instilling in the team. “Head Coach Mathieu Lecompte is brining in a new mentality,” he said. “The coaches are great people, really make you feel at home. They also know their football very well. They have a good mix of younger coaches and more experienced coaches.”

Standing at 5’9, 185lbs, he spent five years with Les Aigles de Varennes before joining Les Grizzlis de Boucherville (Québec Midget Football League). In cégep, he played three seasons with the Champlain Cavaliers (RSEQ Division 3). In 2012, he was named defensive player of the year on Varennes and was a defensive back all-star. In these past two seasons with the Cavaliers, he was a two-time defensive back all-star.

“My goal is to make some noise in U Sports right away,” Trohatos said. “And to help the Vert & Or succeed and make a run.”
