CFL Player Alex Carroll Head Coach of the Victoria Renegades

We are excited to announce that CFL player Alex Carroll will be the New Head Coach of our Junior Bantam Victoria Renegades team for fall football! 

Alex played for GVMFA's Gordon Head Raiders from the age of 7. He continued to play year after year until eventually moving on to the Victoria Renegades and Mt. Doug Secondary School. Alex was part of the team that won the AA Provincial Championship at Mt Doug and was a Provincial All- Star.

Garnering national attention from scouts at Canadian Universities, Alex chose to accept a scholarship from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. Alex completed a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Political Science and was a sprinter on the Track and Field Team. He capped his time with the football program as the leader in all of Ontario University (OUA) football in receptions, yards, and touchdowns for the 2014 Season (2nd in the nation). He was an OUA All-Star Receiver and Kick-Returner. 

Subsequently, Alex was signed by the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League in the Spring of 2015 where he began his professional career. His first 2 receptions in the CFL were touchdowns, one coming in the preseason, and the next on August 22nd, against the Calgary Stampeders. In the spring of 2017, Alex was signed by the Montreal Alouettes, but suffered a season ending knee injury in the preseason.
