UofT commit believes team is best place for him

Toronto welcomes an Ontario commit to their 2019 class.

Liam Cousineau, an athlete from St. Charles College, is ready to give it his all with the University of Toronto Varsity Blues.

“I chose to commit to the University of Toronto because I believe it is the best place for me to be both athletically and academically,” he said. “The Varsity Blues football team is a well funded program with plans to achieve greater goals in these next few years and I wholeheartedly believe I can help their strive toward success.”

When Cousineau went on his unofficial visit, he said that the coaching staff was very welcoming and hospitable. “The recruiting coordinator gave me a thorough tour and was able to positively sway my decision on commitment,” he added. “I was able to have a conversation with the other coaches, who conversed with me cheerfully and seemed genuinely content on my interest in commitment. I could tell they were very knowledgeable and respectful men.”

On the academic front, Cousineau will be taking political science. His goal is to enter law school after his undergrad. “The University of Toronto holds the title for the greatest academic reputation in our nation,” he said.

Cousineau, who is from Sudbury, Ontario, is no stranger to Toronto. “I am familiar with the city as I have family who live here,” he said. “(All these factors) just created the most ideal situation for my pursuit of a post-secondary education.”

In his career, Cousineau, who is 5’10, 175lbs, has played for the Joe MacDonald Youth Football League, the Sudbury Gladiators (OFC) and the St. Charles College Cardinals (SDSSAA). He also participated in three Fox 40 Prospect Challenges in grade 10, 11 and 12. In 2017, he was an offensive MVP and “junior athlete of the year.” He was also the team MVP for the JV Sudbury Gladiators. He is a two-time 1st-team all-pro punt returner and running back in 2017 and 2018.
