Working with Laval coaches a privilege says commit

Laval adds a Québec commit to their Class of 2018.

Maxym Lavallée, a defensive back from Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy, will be following in the footsteps of many of his predecessors after committing to the Laval Rouge et Or.

Last season, Laval stocked up on players from Campus Notre-Dame-de-Foy. Lavallée said that he knows many on the Rouge et Or roster because they were former teammates. “After much consideration, I knew it was the best fit for me,” he added. “When I went on my first visit, I was blown away by the installations and how professional the process was.”

On top of familiar faces, Lavallée is excited to work with the team’s coaches. “I really love the coaching staff, the way they work and how they are passionate about the game. It’s going to be a privilege to be coached by this staff. After meeting with Coach Constantin, Fortier, Nicholas and Bertrand, I could see the knowledge, the passion and the love they have for the game.”

Lavallée, who is interested in physical education, added that, “I know they are going to help me become a better player and a better person because they are the best at what they do.”
