Vert & Or commits have opportunity at school

Sherbrooke adds to provincial commits to their 2019 class.

Running backs Zacharie Dionne from Cégep de La Pocatière and Cédric Deusma from Collège Ahuntsic will be looking to make some noise with the Sherbrooke Vert & Or.

When Zacharie Dionne thinks about the future of Vert & Or football, he likes what he sees. “At Sherbrooke, we have the chance to accomplish big things, such as being the first to win a title. I think it’s going to be a great place to perform as a football player,” he said.

“The installations look great,” Dionne added. “Coaching staff looks great. They want to improve their players. They seem to have experiences and they want their players to perform well. They want to win and have a good way to see things.”

Dionne, who is from La Pocatière, Québec, will be taking a Bachelor of Business Administration with a co-op option.

Dionne spent five years with Les Wisigoths du Collège de Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pocatière (RSEQ) and four with Les Gaulois du Cégep de La Pocatière (RSEQ Division 3). The 5’10, 205lbs athlete won a regional championship with Les Wisigoths in 2014.

When Cédric Deusma joins his new team, he will be looking to make the most of it. “I chose the Vert & Or because I felt that I could make a positive impact on the team and I will have the opportunity to grow as a better student-athlete and a better person,” Deusma said. “I really liked the services they offered to students and athletes and the installations.”

Deusma, who is 5’9, 210lbs, is interested in taking administration in university.

During his recruitment, Deusma said he was well-received by the coaches. “I have a feeling (that) they really trust me,” he added. “I like the fact that the coaches are there for their athletes and that they take their time to help you be better and give you the tools that are needed to succeed academically.”

Hailing from Montréal, Québec, Deusma spent three seasons with Les Indiens du Collège Ahuntsic (RSEQ Division 3). He is a two-time all-star in 2016 and 2017. He also won ‘best male athlete’ in 2017. In 2018, the team made a bit of history when they went to their first Bol d’Or. Unfortunately, they lost the contest.
