What is your name?

  • Samuel Piché-Luneau           

What college do you attend?

  • Sherbrooke University

What is your Height/Weight?

  • I’m 6’3” and 280 lbs.

What is your position?

  • Nose tackle

Where are you from?

  • Victoriaville, Qc

What legacy do you want to leave when you are done playing college football?

  • I want to leave a model of hard work and dedication to all the kids playing football in Quebec. I want to let the younger player on my team know that when you do everything you possibly can the very best you can; you will become great at everything you want to do and you will never be unsatisfied of yourself.

What are you looking to get out of your collegiate football experience?

  • I want to become a very good football player of course. Plus, I want to apply the work ethic I acquired into my personal life.

Who is the best player you competed against in college?

  • Definitely Charles Vaillancourt (OL, Laval University). Maybe it’s because I were younger when I faced Vaillancourt, but he was fast, mean and really tough to move.

What separates you from other players at your position?

  • I can combine speed and power so OLs can’t cheat on me. My bullrush is good so my opponent has to respect that and I got good counter moves so they cannot lean on me.

List 3 things you feel you need in order to be successful in football?

  • Heart, speed and mental skills.

Which pro football player would you compare yourself to? And why?

  • Damon Harrison, DT, Detroit Lions. Because he is a great run stopper. He’s physical and very athletic.

What is your biggest strength?

  • My physical strength. It gives me the ability to crush the pocket so OLs have to double or even triple me in pass protection. Furthermore, I can play more easily in the double team when I defend the run game.

What do you feel you need to improve in the most?

  • Hands work.

Outside of football, what has been your most memorable college experience?

  • The clinic research on the X fragile syndrome I did with the doctor in biochemistry François Corbin. Being able to help (in a microscopic way) people with a disease to get a better life quality is pretty satisfying.

If you can play alongside any athlete in the NFL, past or present, who would it be and why?

  • Ray Lewis of course. I just love playing alongside a very intense player. Especially when it’s my Mack linebacker.

Who is your biggest inspiration? And why?

  • My mother. Because she gives everything she got to make people around her happy since I was born. She had me at 18 years old, struggled a lot, my father wasn’t there and she is now a wealthy women because of hard work and dedication.

What is your definition of success?

  • Be able to be happy every morning life gives you.

What interesting fact would you want the world to know about you?

I have only one 100% real brother since my parents split when I was 3 or 4. He’s name is Max. He is 5’ 10”, weights 125 lbs. and he is a circus artist. We are two very different person, physically and mentally. Still, I am really proud of him and impressed by what he does. He will leave in a month for China for about 2 years because he got a contract with the Cirque du Soleil.
