By: Bryce Smith, February 2, 2019
is your name?
college do you attend?
is your Height/Weight?
I’m 6’3” and 280 lbs.
is your position?
are you from?
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.
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.
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.
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.
3 things you feel you need in order to be successful in football?
Heart, speed and mental skills.
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.
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.
do you feel you need to improve in the most?
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.
you can play alongside any athlete in the NFL, past or present, who would it be
Ray Lewis of course. I just love
playing alongside a very intense player. Especially when it’s my Mack
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.
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.
