The Mount Allison Mounties Men’s Varsity Soccer program is pleased to introduce Tristan Russell MacLean, Brogan Skinner and Michael Cormier who will be joining the Mounties for the 2017 AUS Season. Tristan, Brogan and Michael have gained tremendous experience playing with their respective Clubs, Provincial and National programs. We are excited about the technical qualities and character strengths that these players will bring to the Varsity Soccer Program.
Growing up in Stratford PEI, Tristan has seen success competing at U13 and U16. Tristan's dedication and ability as a Keeper was noticed during his youth career as he was given the opportunity to play both Regionally, Provincially 2012 and Nationally 2014 in Atlantic Canada.
Tristan’s service to the Community has him volunteering at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Farmers Helping Farmers. Aviation, Mathematics and Physics are programs that Tristan is looking forward in perusing.
Brogan comes to the Mounties from Bridgewater Nova Scotia and has been a member of both the Regional and Provincial Soccer Programs. Through high school, Brogan participated in the 2014/2015 Division 1 provincial title while going 22-0 on the season and a silver at the
Division 1 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 Provincials.
Brogan’s presence will be noticed immediately at defensive midfield due to his physical toughness and strength in controlling the centre.
An accomplished Youth Soccer Coach with the Lunenburg United/West Nova Fuels Soccer Club, Brogan was named the BMO's coach of the year for the Atlantic Region. Brogan will be perusing Commerce at Mount A.
Michael joins the Mounties from Margaree Valley, Nova Scotia. An accomplished Keeper, Michael was awarded the Ron O’Flaherty Scholar-Athlete Award, was a contributing member of the Cape Breton FC Tier 1 club in Sydney NS from 2013 to 2016 and the (NSSAF) Provincial Champions 2016-17.
Michael’s Community Involvement has him involved in Healthy Relationships for Youth program facilitator (in-class violence prevention), grades 10-12 and a Volunteer for the Margaree Area Development Association, grades 11-12.
Having been awarded the Lieutenant Governor’s Education Medal, Highest Academic Average (99.54%) and the Loran Scholarship Award, national semi-finalist, Michael’s academic talents will surely escalate at Mount Allison.
