Frederic was selected by the BC Lions in the third round (24th overall) of the 2017 CFL Draft.
2013-2016: Frederic appeared in 26 games across four seasons with the University of Montreal, tallying 65 total tackles, 7.5 tackles for a loss and five sacks. He also forced two fumbles, recovered two fumbles and intercepted a pair of passes as a Carabin.
Frederic battled through injury in 2016, but still managed to record 28 stops, one sack, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception en route to being named a U Sports second team all-Canadian.
Frederic is currently working towards his degree in Business Management from the University of Montreal. Known as King Motte by his Carabin comrades, Frederic cites winning the 2014 Vanier Cup as his most memorable football moment.
Sports comedies are always a hit at the box office and he lists Happy Gilmore and The Replacements as his favourite flicks. The Montreal, PQ native enjoys popping in his earphones and hitting play on some Celine Dion prior to big games. Frederic can always count on his family to support him from the stands, as he says they are his biggest fans. When he isn’t tackling ball carriers on the football field, you will find Frederic in the kitchen cooking up a storm. It makes sense then that King Motte grew up dreaming of opening his own steak house.
