Laval Adds to their great class, Labour Day in St. Catharines

Adding to a second consecutive strong recruiting class, the Laval Rouge et Or have announced another impact recruit in 6'7" Kevin Crevant (pictured), an import from France who played for Olymipique Antibes in the French N1 league (France's third league). Crevant, still just 18 years old, has worked his way through the French junior leagues and adds to an already impressive Rouge et Or recruiting class that includes 6'4" Jerome Turcotte (CEGEP Sainte-Foy), 6'6" Pier-Luc Jacques (Montmorency) and 5'9" Xavier Baribeau (CEGEP Sainte-Foy). "We have added another player for next year who we think is ready physically and mentally to play at the CIS level", commented Laval Head Coach Jacques Paiement. "His skills and knowledge of the game are without a doubt at a very good level."

In one of the numerous CIS vs. NCAA events to be held over the course of the Labour Day weekend, Brock Badgers will host North Florida, Texas A&M Corpus-Christi and Liberty University, bringing in OUA East program RMC Paladins and a team of Southern Ontario All-Stars that is likely to include former CIS All-Canadian Kevin Steinstra and multiple OUA West all-star Ryan Dudley. Games on September 1st and 2nd will all be played at the Bob Davis Gymnasium at Brock University. On Labour Day Monday, a double-header will be played at Notre Dame High School in Welland.
