The Cornwall Wildcats, which play in the province’s top junior football league, will have a new head coach for the 2020 spring gridiron season.
Bainsville’s Alex Labonte has been named to the post.
The 28-year-old played his junior football in Quebec’s CEGEP league, before moving on to suit up at the university level for the Ottawa Gee-Gees.
Labonte was named to the top job earlier this month and tells me he has already started working, particularly on the recruitment front. On his role as head coach, he says, “It’s gonna be a good challenge.” He had served over the past few years as an assistant coach.
