Vert & Or’s team grows by 1

Sherbrooke welcomes Triade to their Class of 2017.

Zénon Richard-Archambault, an offensive lineman from Cégep régional de Lanaudière, is ready to soak in the atmosphere that his new team, the Sherbrooke Vert & Or, has to offer.

Outside the realm of football, not many people may now of Sherbrooke, Québec. But, add football into the mix, and the city speaks for itself. “I really like the city and the way that football is seen and framed by people over there,” Richard-Archambault said. “The facilities and accessibility of the sports complex is perfect.”

The Vert & Or have recently undergone some housecleaning with their coaching staff. But, as a new commit, it can be seen as a chance to grow and learn with the coaches who are in a similar situation as you. “The coaching staff is new in Sherbrooke and I really enjoy it,” Richard-Archambault said. “There is already a familiar link since everyone feels included in this team.”

The 5’11, 255lbs centre, who also long snaps, is interested in kinesiology because he is passionate about sports and training. In his 16-year career, he has suited up for the Les Drakkar de St-Félix-de-Valois (RSEQ) in junior high, Les Pirates de Joliette (RSEQ) in high school and Les Triades du Cégep régional de Lanaudière (RSEQ Division 2). He is from Sainte-Mélanie, Lanaudière, Québec.

When he was 11 and a fullback at the time, he won a “Ballon d’Argent” with Les Pirates in his first season. In 2013, he was named as the best long snapper in the Wilbert Scott division in the Québec Midget Football League.

Football, in every aspect, is a team sport. Richard-Archambault appreciates this and said he would like to thank everyone who has been with him during his career in football.
