WHAT A SEASON!

Every year the Quebec Midget Football League holds its award ceremony to honour its best players, this year was clearly the year of the Hornet. Sun Youth won 14 different player awards and coaching staff of the year. The awards included both MVP offense and defense, multiple all-stars across every position group and an academic bursary of $500 for achievement in the classroom (complete list below). In 2018 the Hornets midget team went undefeated; winning both the Provincial and Inter-provincial Championships.

The league also held a tribute to our late co-founder and coach Earl De La Perralle who was a pillar of the Quebec football community and a founding member of Football Quebec. The president of the league and close friend Renzo Fraraccio opened up his speech with a few kind words about Earl.

“On June 19th, 2018, we lost an iconic figure in Montreal. Earl De La Perralle made his life’s work to ensure everyone had a place to play the sport they loved. And I know first-hand that Earl truly loved football, it really was his favourite sport. Countless young men found their way to universities throughout the United States and Canada with Earl’s help. Although he founded Sun Youth he never looked at the colour of a uniform; if you had the talent and the heart to go play and study at a higher level, he helped you. One thing was for sure: you knew you were not going to get there and embarrass coach Earl. So if he brought you somewhere he knew you were someone that would make him proud. And a lot of young men did make him proud. And when you went there you were going to succeed in your school and your football.”

The Hornets have now shifted their focus to the 2019 season and will start off season training. If you’re interest in becoming a Hornet please contact Jesse Blizzard at 514-842-6822 or by email at football@sunyouthorg.com
