Sherbrooke brings in 3 like-minded commits

Vert & Or bring in three commits from Québec.

The Sherbrooke Vert & Or are in a transition period and they’re looking for similar-minded individuals to help their cause. Enter their new commits, Julien Le Guéhennec, a linebacker from Cégep du Vieux-Montréal, Charles Davidson-Parent, a linebacker from Champlain College Saint-Lambert and William Garceau, a tight end from Cégep de Trois-Rivières

Julien Le Guéhennec is all about the mental side of football. “I chose this school because the new way of doing things and the new mentality with the change at coaching really corresponds to what drives me, which are audacity, intensity and the desire to win,” he said.

It’s not surprising then that the 5’9, 190lbs hybrid linebacker and defensive back wants to be a psychologist. “Its also a very good school for what I’m trying to do (in my future). They have a very good program and the opportunity to do co-ops,” he said.

It was the coaching staff, however, that first drew Le Guéhennec’s eye. “The coaching staff is excellent and it’s what got me interested in the first place. They’re young and highly motivated to take this program to new heights and they’re very talented,” he said.

“I look forward to working with Kevin Regimbald as my position coach and Quillaume Boucher as my defensive coordinator because I know they will develop me to the max of my abilities,” he added.

Originally from Noisy-le-Grand, France, Le Guéhennec mainly grew up in Montréal, Québec. He spent four years with Les Cactus du Collége Notre-Dame (RSEQ), winning a Bol D’Or in 2013. He also won defensive MVP in this year. He then proceeded onto cégep where be played with Les Spartiates du Cégep du Vieux-Montréal (RSEQ Division 1), winning a Bol D’Or in 2014.

“I’ll do everything that is in my power to bring one (a championship) to Sherbrooke too,” Le Guéhennec. “This has been a really tough choice but I know I won’t regret it. I want to thank all the people that recruited me for the time they put in that.”

Much like his fellow linebacker Le Guéhennec, Charles Davidson-Parent was also drawn to the mindset of the University of Sherbrooke. “What led me to commit to Sherbrooke was the values that they supported. Values such as respect, academic success and the feeling of being part of a family are all very important values I support, and Sherbrooke’s coaches and players all have the same mentality,” he said.

“Just to top it off, the facilities and the campus itself are amazing. It’s everything you need for a student-athlete to be able to perform at the highest level possible,” he added.

Davidson-Parent, who spent his cégep years with the Champlain Cavaliers (RSEQ Division 3), said Sherbrooke support the same values that made him choose Champlain over other cégeps three years ago. He added that he is interested in the Bachelor of Administration program.

“With the nomination of Coach Mathieu Lecompte as head coach, I think the program is going in the right direction. Plus, I met with Coach Guillaume Boucher, the defensive coordinator, a couple times in the past few months and I feel like we are really on the same page. The energy that the whole coach staff provides is really a key that I think will help the team be successful for years to come,” he said.

The 6’1, 200lbs linebacker and defensive end grew up in Varennes, Québec, a small, south-shore town near Montréal. He played six years with Les Aigles du Varennes (Ligue de Football Montréal-Métro) and one with Les Grizzlis de Boucherville (QMFL AAA). He has been named as an RSEQ all-star and was named Defensive Lineman of the Year in his final year with Champlain.

“I owe a lot to the coaching staff back in Saint-Lambert who helped me become the player I am today. Without Coach Robert Payne, Sebastien Deschamps and many others, I would never be where I am today. I am forever thankful,” Davidson-Parent said.

Team mentality is a theme among Sherbrooke’s most recent commits. William Garceau said “I choose Sherbrooke because I like the team’s values and I think that it’s the best place for me to perform when you’re a tight end like me,” he said.

The future history student is excited for the new prospects on the horizon. “The new head coach wants to bring the program on a new level and I want to be part of this project,” he said.

Standing at 6’5, 230lbs, the towering football player spent five years with Les Estacades de l’Académie les Estacades (RSEQ). He then played two years with Les Faucons du Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon (RSEQ Division 1) before moving back to his home, Trois-Rivières, Québec. There, he spent a year with Les Diables du Cégep de Trois-Rivières (RSEQ Division 2).
