A fourth-year defensive tackle, Sanelli wreaked havoc on the McGill Redmen’s offence in the Concordia Stingers' 33-26 victory in the 50th annual Shaughnessy Cup last Saturday. He had two sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and three batted balls. Sanelli currently leads the RSEQ in sacks with four in three games.
