MVP - Sebastien Dorzilme

Being one of the only veterans on the team, it was clear from day one that Sebastian was going to be the team leader. Sebastian led by both his character and his skill on the field. Sebastian was one of the leading scorers on the team and brought fear to the eyes of his opponents. Sebastian is our MVP.

Most Improved - Jérémie Palmier

Having never played rugby before, Jérémy started the season with no knowledge of the sport, but with his ability to learn quickly and his natural athleticism, Jérémy soon became one of the Hurricanes stand out players. Jérémy went from not knowing what rugby is to becoming one of the team’s leading tacklers. We hope that Jérémy will continue to play rugby and improve his skills.

male rugby rookie of the year

Rookie of the Year - Cameron Chartrand

In his 3rd year at Heritage, Cameron finally decided to come out to the rugby team for the first time. Starting at training camp you could see that Cameron's quickness was going to be a threat on the field. Cameron's best game came late in the season were he helped control the game while also showing us his extreme flexibility. We hope Cameron continues to play rugby and excel at the scrum half position.

male rugby coach award

Coach's Award - Oscar Périard

If there was one guy on the team that was willing to do whatever it takes for the coaches and his team it is Oscar. Having never player rugby before, Oscar was eager to learn and improved quickly through hard work. By the end of the season Oscar could be seen making bone crunching tackles and laying it all out on the field for his team. We hope Oscar will bring the same attitude to a university rugby team next year.
