Viking REC ready to battle CEGEP

Viking REC training to become better as a player and as a leader.

Phil Morin first hit the gridiron at the age of eight with the Gatineau Vikings in the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA). When the receiver was 14, he started playing in the RSEQ (Quebec Student Sports Network) for the Nicolas Gatineau Phénix, and now at the age of 17, he plays midget with the Vikings de Quebec in the Quebec Midget Football League (QMFL).

“Last season was a really hard season for us (Nicolas Gatineau), but getting to the playoffs as a team was a good achievement,” said Phil. “That season helped me to become a better leader.”


Morin has also played two years for the Selection Outaouais and in 2015 he was on the Spalding Cup All-Star team.

This past summer, Phil trained with Ken Evaire at his camp Red Zone 7 for receivers and it helped him improve a lot as a football player.

For this upcoming season, the Viking wants to keep improving as football player, as well as a leader.

As far as recruitment goes, he had quite a few CEGEP offers, but was not ready to play due to the intense schedules and chose to get used to the academic lifestyle first, which is why he plays midget.

He has yet to visit or talked to any universities, but he is open to any possibility.

“I don’t really have anything figured out yet, but I plan to stay in school and focus on my grades [and] if football doesn’t work out, I’ll have a good education,” explained the 2019 graduate.

On the field, a few people, and the support of his family and friends influence Phil.

Coach Jonathan Noel of Nicolas Gatineau helped him through high school both on the field and in the classroom, but the Viking’s most influential person is his receiving coach and father, Michel Morin.
