Taylor, Simba named to football all-star team

Two highly accomplished members of the Concordia Stingers football program were named to the RSEQ all-star team announced by the Quebec conference this morning.

Wide receiver Jarryd Taylor of LaSalle, Que. makes his first appearance on the honour roll. The third-year athlete caught 24 passes for 527 yards and two touchdowns in eight games this season. He was first in the RSEQ for total yards and second in yards per game with an average of 65.9.

His career totals now stand at 71 receptions for 1265 yards and three touchdowns in 20 regular season games.

Taylor, who checks in at six-foot-three and 175 pounds, is studying Finance in the John Molson School of Business.

Fourth-year offensive tackle Maurice Simba earns his second all-star award. In 2017 he earned conference honours and was named a U SPORTS second team all-Canadian. Simba also participated in the 2018 East-West all-star showcase.

The six-foot-eight, 320-pound native of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of Congo has been on the CFL radar for a long time. He is a top rated prospect for the 2019 draft. His size is a big draw, but he’s also respected for his character.
