OL Faucher enjoys making space for QBs, RBs

For some, sport is a passing interest, a thing done casually, a time killer. For others, sport is everything. It is the reason they wake up in the morning, and the thing that puts them to bed. It haunts their dreams and consumes their thoughts. Samuel Faucher would be the latter.

“Football means a lot to me because I am always doing football, even in the gym to become better. I started football because I love sports and that (sport is) mine,” Faucher said.

While he conducts his own battles on the field, Faucher is no stranger to being around strong people. He said that he draws inspiration from his father because “he had to fight all his life and he never gives up.”

Taking that to heart, Faucher is never short of work ethic. While attending combines, he noted that it was his work ethic that distinguished him from his fellow football players.

Hunkering down on the offensive line, Faucher plays for L’Embâcle de la Polyvalente Benoît-Vachon (RSEQ). Standing at 6’1, 240lbs, the seven-year veteran has already chosen a cégep team to call his own next season. The member of the Class of 2020 will be joining Les Condors du Cégep Beauce-Appalaches (RSEQ Division 2) next season.

Sébastien Pomerleau, the head coach of L’Embâcle, told L’Eclaireur Progrès that Les Condors are acquiring a leader and a hardworking and good student.

The head coach of Les Condors, Guillaume Blouin, also told L’Eclaireur Progrès that Faucher will be a main piece of the team’s offensive line for many seasons.

Although he has a bit of a wait before joining Les Condors, Faucher said that his goal is to “have a great first collegial season and to be dominate in my first year.” Beyond that, he wants to continue on in football as far into the future as possible.

“I need to become bigger and increase my vision on the field to compete in the next level,” he added.

While the offensive line does not often receive as much glory and recognition as say, the running backs or quarterbacks, Faucher takes pride in being a human barricade for them. “I like to see the guys (offensive teammates) in the newspaper and know that they wouldn’t be there if I wasn’t there,” he said.

Faucher was a member of the 2017 edition of Team Québec at the Football Canada Cup in Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The team captured their third straight gold medal in a 10-7 win versus Team Saskatchewan. Québec was entering the final stretch of the game, down by four, when receiver Jashia Lewis-Pennicooke scored a touchdown with only 19.2 seconds left on the clock.

Faucher is a two-time all-star. In his first season with L’Embâcle, he was named offensive player of the year.
