McGill academics focal point for commits

McGill welcomes two Québec commits to their 2019 class.

Linebacker Thomas Bélanger from Collège André-Grasset and tight end Jean Bidaux Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon are set to add their skills to McGill.

Thomas Bélanger

Drawn in by the academics and staying for the football, Thomas Bélanger has found a place for himself at McGill. “I chose McGill because I can get a very good education in a school (that is) known worldwide,” he said. While he is interested in the arts, he is unsure as to what he will be majoring in.

As for football, “I had the chance to meet the coaches and I find (that) they have a great football knowledge and are very hard working, very good coaching staff,” he said.

Primarily a linebacker, this season the 6’1, 225lbs athlete played as a defensive end. He won two Bol d’Or championships in 2013 and 2015 with Les Cactus du Collège Notre-Dame (RSEQ) and one in 2018 with Les Phénix du Collège André-Grasset (RSEQ Division 1).

Itching to start the season, Bélanger, who is from Montréal, Québec, has a message to share: “I am very excited to play and hungry to prove myself at the next level.”

Jean Bidaux

Jean Bidaux is currently in Lévis, Québec, where he has played with Les Faucons du Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon (RSEQ Division 1) since 2016. In 2014 he played with EDF Junior (FFFA) in La Courneuve, Paris. He stands at 6’3, 215lbs.
