VANIER CHEETAHS IN THE NEWS     
AMEET PALL HAS FITTING CONCLUSION TO A DREAM SEASON

February 5, 2007


PALL: MVP AT BOTH THE BOL D'OR AND GLOBAL CHAMPIONSHIPS
DEFENSIVE END HOLDS PROMISE FOR ANOTHER EXCITING YEAR IN 2007



AMEET FLASHES "THREE" FOR THREE-PEAT
Ameet Pall celebrates both Team Canada's
victory as well as his own Game MVP selection.

Vanier Cheetahs Defensive End Ameet Pall has had a season that could only be described as inspirational.

After being named game MVP an innumerable number of times during the regular season for his stellar play, Ameet's first of many major accolades came when he established a new league record for quarterback sacks. The record had stood for many years before Ameet smashed it this season.

It was no certainly surprise when he was picked for the league Defensive All Star Team at season's end. He was credited for 2 more sacks in the Cheetahs 14-0 win to take the Provincial Championship Bol d'Or and was named Defensive Player of the Game.

On November 29th, Pall was named Athlete of the Week by the Montreal Gazette and was featured in an extensive article by Arpon Basu. Finally, to cap it all off, he was named Defensive Game MVP for his contribution to Team Canada's victory at this year's NFL Junior Global Championship held February 3, 2007 in Florida.


The most promising aspect of this entire story for those of us who count ourselves as Vanier Cheetah supporters is that unlike many members of this year's Bol d'Or winning Vanier Football Cheetahs who are not returning due to their completion of CEGEP studies, our stalwart Ameet Pall is due to return for what we hope will be another record-breaking season starting in August 2007. Quarterbacks, beware!

A 19 year old native of Pierrefonds, Pall admitted that at the start of this year's regular season he was not even aware of the existence of the league quarterback sack record that he was destined to break. "At the beginning, I had no idea they even kept records like that," he said. He broke the long-standing record of 12 when he registered his 13th during a win over Lennoxville on October 28th and then, on the last game of the season on November 4th, added yet another sack to raise his own record to 14.


With typical intensity, Ameet zeroes in on his target,
in this case, Beauce quarterback James Goulet.

Certainly, two highlights of the year for Ameet have got to be his team's capture of the Bol d'Or, symbol of provincial CEGEP football supremacy and his selection at the championship game as the Defensive MVP. (see photo at left)

Ameet Pall has had a season that others can only dream of.

We, the fans of the Vanier Football Cheetahs can only dream of what he will do for the team next season. We look forward to whatever he will offer, which always seems to be his best!
