News | Redmen football player suspended two years for ‘doping’

Defensive lineman Darcy Pelosse has waived his right to appeal

McGill football player Darcy Pelosse will be suspended from university sports for two years after testing positive for a pair of performance-enhancing drugs in tests conducted in June by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sports (CCES).

Pelosse, who played as a defensive lineman for the Redmen for two years, waived his right to a hearing after receiving his positive test result, according to a December 2 CCES press release, and accepted his two-year suspension from any sport that has signed on to the Canadian Anti-Doping Program. Pelosse is also prohibited from training with his teammates for the duration of the ban.

Taylor Kuprowski, U2 Engineering and one of the team captains, said he was “disappointed” in Pelosse, but emphasized that his former teammate was an anomaly on the McGill squad.
