Fresh off of a municipal and provincial championship, quarterback Eloa Latendresse-Regimbald and linebacker Liam Masley represented the Hornets for Team Quebec in the Canada Cup. While the team claimed the silver medal they earned major respect after a four overtime victory over Alberta in the semi finals. It was no surprise that Eloa brought home top honors as tournament MVP (offense) after the impressive performance. To top it off, the quarterback’s talents and hard work have earned him a spot on Team Canada for the 2020 IFAF World Junior Championship! Keep an eye on these two players as they take their talents to the CEGEP level for the 2019-20 season (Eloa: Vanier and Liam: Andre-Grasset). The tournament also featured former Hornet and Coach Anthony Di Francesco who made Sun Youth proud by coaching the U16 team to a 28-7 victory over Ontario to bring home the Gold medal.

At the U17 level, four of the Hornets Bantam players represented The Nestfor the QBFL elites in this years’ edition of the Nike Team XL Bowl. Oscar Escobar (WR), Luca Lapaix Lorenzo (RB), David Stefu (DL) and Andrew Lainis (LB) put forward a valiant effort to secure the bronze medal in a decisive 31-13 victory over EMS.
