Montreal Carabins’ linebacker Jean-Philippe Lévesque had an outstanding performance in his team’s 25-10 victory over the Laval Rouge et Or Saturday in the RSEQ Final by blocking a punt in the second quarter.

Lévesque exploded over the line of scrimmage and blocked the punt. The ball was later recovered by his teammate Benoit Marion and the Carabins never looked back from there, defeating their archrivals and picking up their first Dunsmore Cup victory in four years.
