I believe in the power of mentorship and positive influence in their lives. It’s my way of making a real difference and creating a positive legacy for future generations. »

Several activities will be offered during the weekend, such as a running and agility workshop led by Olympic sprinter Bruny Surin, as well as development workshops and a football clinic.

Back to basics

The cornerback and former Wolves of Curé-Antoine-Labelle is proud to hold this event where it all began.

It creates a special connection with young players and inspires them to pursue their dreams no matter where they come from. I am grateful to have had this opportunity to celebrate and inspire the next generation in my hometown.”

Asked about his most beautiful memories with the formation of Sainte-Rose, he does not hesitate for a second.

“My best moments with the Wolves are of course all the great victories we had in 2012-2013, but above all the friendships I created with my teammates and coaches. My best friends played with me at Curé Antoine Labelle.”

He also underlines the involvement of his former coach Martin Sénéchal who allows him to use the secondary school ground for his football camp.


Selected in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, St-Juste will enter his third season with the Washington Commanders. He says he wants to continue to progress.

« I am determined to succeed and I will give my all to improve my skills and my performance on the pitch, » he said. My goals for 2023 are to push my limits as a player, contribute to the success of my team and make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Last year, Washington finished the regular season with an 8-8-1 record in the highly competitive NFC East Division.
