The Stingers football program is pleased to announce talented Vanier College receiver Vince Alessandrini has decided to pursue his football career and studies at Concordia University.
“Vince is a natural,” said Mike Harrington, the Stingers’ receiver coach. “He has a good frame, he runs well and runs good routes. What I like most is that he blocks well and it’s hard to find receivers who do that. He also has a great attitude and a little swagger. I’m excited about working with him.”
With the Vanier Cheetahs in 2015, Alessandrini had 25 receptions for 408 yards and three touchdowns. He was an RSEQ all-star at Laval Liberty High School in 2012 and won a gold medal at the Canada Cup as a member of Team Québec in 2013.
“I play with a lot of pride and I hate to lose,” Alessandrini said. “I like to set an example for my teammates.
“I decided to attend Concordia because there are a lot of Vanier teammates here and I know it’s going to good to be back on the field these guys,” he said. “Of course, as a receiver I want to play with a great quarterback. I want to play with Trenton Miller.”
The Stingers report to training camp in mid-August and kick off the season on the road at McGill on Friday, Sept. 2.
