Beaconsfield’s Alexander Hutchinson has won a Montreal Alouettes bursary worth $1,500 from the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence.
Hutchinson, a 6-foot-3, 232-pound defensive lineman, is a fifth-year physical education major at McGill.
He won the award based on his stellar performance last season in which he tied for the team lead with 40.5 tackles, including 32 solos and 3.5 quarterback sacks. He also had a 41-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown against Sherbrooke.
Hutchinson, 24, joined the Redmen in 2008. He has also attended John Abbott College and LCC.
In the eight years since the Alouettes bursaries were implemented, $280,000 has been awarded to football players at the high school, collegial and university levels.
The program is co-directed by the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence and Football Quebec, in partnership with the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec.
