Vincent Carbonneau is confident that his place is with the Rouge et Or.

“I think they are the best team you can play for in Québec, and I really liked my visit there,” he says. “The coaching staff seems really sharp, and they really know football.”

Carbonneau spent five years playing at Séminaire Saint-François and three playing with CNDF. He won a Bol d’or while at Séminaire Saint-François, and was also a two-time all-star in high school. He made the all-star team while with CNDF as well. Standing at 6’2, 200lbs, he is interested in studying business.

Alexis Forest

Alexis Forest had plenty of reasons to like Laval. “I have a good relationship with the offensive coaches,” he says. “I am sure they are the coaches that are going to help me improve my five years at Laval. They really want you to succeed at school and on the football field. They are also one of the best coaching staffs in Canada.”

Forest, who is 6’1, 190lbs, is interested in civil engineering. He added that, “They have a good engineering program, and also I really liked my visits and their football facility.”

Before spending three years with CNDF, Forest played five years with the Laurentian Wildcats (QBFL). He won a Spaulding Cup in 2016 and was a QBFL all-star the same year. In 2019, he was a CNDF team captain.

Francis Bouchard

Originally from Québec City, Québec, Francis Bouchard is already familiar with the Rouge et Or. “Growing up in Québec, I’ve always watched Laval games since I was young. Year after year, Laval is still dominate in U Sports football, so it shows the quality of the football program built by good coaches,” he said.

“Laval was the best opportunity even if I had other good options like Concordia, Ottawa and Sherbrooke. The fact that I have one of the best football programs in my hometown is a big factor on my decision,” he added.

Singing praise of the team, Bouchard is confident in the team’s coaching staff as well. “Laval has great coaches with a lot of experience,” he said. “I’m sure they are going to help me a lot to improve my football game. I can’t wait to get on the field and step up my game at the next level.”

The 6’2, 205lb outside linebacker and defensive back will be taking administrative affairs this winter. He spent three seasons with Le Notre-Dame. In 2019, he was a RSEQ Division 1 all-star.

“I’m going to work hard all offseason to be ready if my name is called to play with Laval,” Bouchard said. “I know there’s a lot of good football players, and I want to learn from them.”
