Vert & Or atmosphere attracts 2

Sherbrooke adds one local and one Québec commit to their 2019 class.

Jacob Camiré, a kicker from Cégep de Sherbrooke, and Bruno Sénéchal, a running back from Cégep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, are about to become of one the family, the the University of Sherbrooke Vert & Or family that is.

This day has been a long time coming for Jacob Camiré. “I always wanted to play for the Vert & Or,” Camiré said. “When I was younger, I used to go see the games and now I have a chance to represent my city.”

During his visits, Camiré said he was able to meet with most of the team’s coaches. “My impressions were that they were all professionals and very qualified. I also felt welcomed by the coaches and by a few of the players that I met,” he said.

“I really felt that I wanted to work in that kind of atmosphere where the coaches and the players are close. So, I really only have positive things to say about the coaching staff from what I saw during my visit.”

He added that the sports facilities and academics are great. He is interested in taking the physical education program.

Camiré has spent eight years playing football in his hometown of Sherbrooke, Québec. The 5’9, 210lbs kicker and punter started with Les Barons du Séminaire de Sherbrooke (RSEQ) before joining Les Volontaires du cégep de Sherbrooke (RSEQ Division 2). He was named to the all-star team in 2013 in the Juvenile AAA D1-B division.

It is time for Bruno Sénéchal to leave the island of Montréal and head to southern Québec. “I committed to Sherbrooke because I felt at home. The players I met were really nice during my visits and it automatically felt like I was a part of the family,” he said. “Of course, the fact that my big brother is already playing there weighted in the balance.”

It’s the coaches who have helped build that family atmosphere. “The coaching staff is pretty young and seem much closer to their players for that reason,” said Sénéchal, who is interested in accounting and mathematics.

The 6’0, 195lbs product of Ile-Bizard, Montréal, has played for a wide variety of teams. He started at the age of six with the Ile-Bizard Vikings. “I fell in love with the game and haven’t stopped playing since,” he said. He also has played with the Lakeshore Cougars, the North Shore Mustangs and Les Géants du Cégep St-Jean-sur-Richelieu (RSEQ Division 1). He has won the Doug Britton Bowl with the Mustangs in 2015.
