Tackle Damien Constantin visits coach Pat Donovan at Concordia.

Stingers hit jackpot with football recruit Damien Constantin

Patrick Donovan, interim head coach of the Concordia Stingers football team, is pleased to officially announce offensive tackle Damien Constantin has committed to his program.

“A team is only as good as its front line, and with the addition of Damien we definitely got a lot better,” said Donovan. “A player of his size and athletic ability enables us to do a lot more.

“We’re excited to have him join our program. He’s a quality person from a good family and he has a good head on his shoulders. I can’t wait for the new season.”

Constantin, who checks in at six foot seven and 325 pounds, played football at Saint-Stanislas high school before making the jump to Collège Montmorency where he played two seasons with the Nomades. He was also a member of the 2013 Quebec team that won the Canada Cup.

In 2016, he played football for the Saint Mary’s Huskies in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) conference. He elected to sit out the 2017 university season making him eligible to transfer to another school and compete in 2018.

“Coach Pat is awesome,” said Constantin, a native of St. Jérôme, Que. “I want to play for him and I want to be in Montreal where my family can see me play. I know I can develop at Concordia and I want to win.”
