Windsor Lancers enlist help of two talented commits

Windsor adds a local commit and a commit from the nation’s capital to their Class of 2018.

The Windsor Lancers are in a bit of a rebuild right now, and they are excited to announce the addition of CJ Wallace, a defensive tackle from St. Francis Xavier High School, and Tavien French-Robert, an athlete from W.F. Herman Academy, to their roster.

CJ Wallace’s career is relatively young, only spanning over four years. Regardless, he will have the chance to make his mark on the Lancers, and the team couldn’t be happier.

“I chose to commit to Windsor because I felt like they had my best interests at mind and were intent on helping me get my degree as well as help turn their team around,” Wallace said. “Coach Fraser made me feel like family and he was very polite and friendly in welcoming me and my mom into the Windsor family.”

Vince Flamia, the Lancers’ special teams coordinator, described Wallace as athletic, active and strong.

Wallace, who is 6’2, 290lbs, played with the Gloucester Raiders (NCAFA), Cumberland Panthers (OPFL), the St. Francis Xavier Coyotes (National Capital Secondary School Athletics Association) and Football North St. Joes. In 2015, he was the Raiders defensive rookie of the year and the Panthers’ defensive MVP. While with the Coyotes, he was the team’s co-MVP and a finalist for athlete of the year.

Tavien French-Robert is a hometown product. Originally from Windsor, Ontario, he played with the Herman Academy Griffins (Windsor Essex County Secondary School Athletic Association). Standing at 6’3, 195lbs, Flamia said he is ranked as one of the top players in Windsor.

“He will join the Lancers in the fall and play in the secondary,” Flamia said. “He is a player that could play on both sides of the football.”
