Jonathan Sénécal named Canadian player of the year

November 24, 2023

After winning the Jeff Russell Trophy in recognition of the RSEQ's most outstanding player of the year, Montréal Carabins quarterback Jonathan Sénécal made history by becoming its first player to receive the Hec Crighton Trophy, which is presented annually to Canadian university football's most outstanding player.

The Bachelor of Business Administration student from HEC Montréal received the highest award of the evening yesterday, during the annual individual honours’ ceremony organized by U SPORTS.


“This is an honour that I absolutely want to share with all my teammates,” declared the number 12. “While it’s true that I had a good season, none of this would have been possible without them. Everyone upped their game, and this was reflected in our results. I am very happy to win this award, but I’ll only be able to appreciate it 100% when our work is completely finished.”
