Laval Rouge et Or wins in battle for commit

Laval adds a Québec commit to their Class of 2018.

Alec Poirier, a linebacker from Champlain College Lennoxville, was debating between schools for quite some time, but in the end, the University of Laval Rouge et Or won.

He told Le Journal de Québec that he was hesitating between Laval and the University of Montréal. He also visited the University of Sherbrooke and Guelph University.

Poirier is finishing up his final season with the Champlain College Lennoxiville Cougars (RSEQ Division 1). Kevin Mackey, the Cougars’ head coach, considered him a key returnee to the team for the 2017 season. Poirier has been playing football for 13 years. He spent seven years with Les Wildcats de Laurentides-Lanaudière in the Québec Bantam Football League. While in the QBFL, he was named as the most valuable defensive player. He was also a member of Team Québec in 2015 and Team Canada in 2016.

Poirier, who calls Montréal, Québec, home, is 6’3, 230lbs. He won a Bol d’Or with the Cougars in 2015.
