Two recruits are added onto the Red and Gold of the University Laval in the past few days.

It is the wingers defensive Aymeric Adihou, the Cougars Champlain college, and Alexis Foley, Condors de Beauce-Appalaches.

Used as a blocker to the left, starting with the Cougars the past two seasons, Adihou will be back on the defensive line as at the time where he wore the colours of the Triplet in the ranks at school.

“I wanted to return on the defensive line, and it is also the wish of Laval, he told. At 248 pounds, it would have required that I take an over forty books to play on the offensive line and I wouldn’t have been at my healthy weight.

“A few teams from Ontario have approached me, but I don’t attempting to, pursue the people of Sherbrooke. I wanted to go back to study in French. The organization, the infrastructure, the coaches and the team spirit are sick. From the start, I knew that I wanted to go to Laval, where I could find a few teammates of Lennox. “

For his part, Foley has decided in a final between Laval and Montreal, and he has also considered Ottawa and Carleton.

“I chose Laval because it was a great opportunity both academically and sporting. I loved the atmosphere in the team. I also chose Laval because I like a lot Glen Constantin. There was a lot of talking during my visit, and it will be an honor for me to be coached by him. I also believe that the situation at the level of the charter of the depths on the defensive line is favorable. Regardless of the name in front of me, I’ll introduce myself and give my 120 % to every occasion. […] I’m still the guy who works the hardest, it is my trademark. “

Transfer profitable

After two seasons with the Griffons de l’outaouais, Foley has set sail on the Beauce.

“I transferred part to follow three of my instructors of the Griffins that went to the Beauce, including a coach very important to me. In addition, I was not really happy with the Griffons. However I had my captain, my starting job, but I was no longer good and I needed to change.

“Also, I knew that the program in the Beauce region was in difficulty and being an individual who demonstrates significant leadership, I gave myself the challenge to give them a second wind, and I helped the team win a first match in three years. This is one of my biggest prides. With the benefit of hindsight, it is definitely one of the best decisions of my life. “
