Laval’s McGee sus­pended

Waterloo Region Record - - SPORTS - News ser­vices

MON­TREAL — A Laval Univer­sity foot­ball player who in­jured an op­po­nent with a hit to the head has been sus­pended. But it was not the one who hit Con­cor­dia Stingers quar­ter­back Tren­ton Miller. De­fen­sive back Kevin McGee was sus­pended one game for a hit that flat­tened re­ceiver James Tyrrell late in Laval’s 12-8 home vic­tory last week. A hit by de­fen­sive back Gabriel Ouel­let that rat­tled Miller was left un­pun­ished. Laval is­sued a state­ment say­ing it would not ap­peal the de­ci­sion made by the FSEQ, the body that over­sees high school, col­lege and univer­sity foot­ball in Que­bec. A video plead­ing for ac­tion to be taken on hits to the head was posted on so­cial me­dia by Miller this week and has had more than 55,000 view­ers. Miller asked the RSEQ to make elim­i­nat­ing head hits a pri­or­ity.
