An All-American at Lafayette, Saint Germain made his collegiate coaching debut in 2009 after two years on the sideline at Morristown (N.J.) High School. At Morristown, Saint Germain worked with the Colonials’ offensive and defensive lines, as well as tight ends, helping the 2007 team to a 9-2 record and postseason appearance.
Working with the Diplomats' defensive line in 2009, Saint Germain guided Mark Surma to the All-Centennial Second Team and helped the unit to 15 sacks, nine more than the 2008 unit turned in.
Success on the gridiron is a pattern in Saint Germain’s involvement with the game. He earned three varsity letters at Lafayette, breaking into the starting lineup as a sophomore. That season, he helped clear the way to let the Leopards’ amass over 200 yards per game on the ground. As a junior, Saint Germain was the only Leopard to start all 12 games on the offensive line. He earned All-Patriot League First Team honors protecting his quarterbacks for a league best 244.3 yards per game through the air.
As a senior, Saint Germain started all 12 of Lafayette’s games en route to a Patriot League Championship and NCAA playoff berth. He repeated as an All-Patriot First Team choice, but that was only the beginning of his postseason accolades. In the wake of the championship, Saint Germain was named an All-ECAC First Team choice and a first team all-American by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) and CollegeSportingNews.com. The Associated Press and Football Gazette named him a third-team all-American.
Off of the field, Saint Germain was active in Read Across America, in which he read to elementary school students during his college years. He has participated in the Lauren’s First and Goal Camps.
“Saint has been a part of winning football throughout his association with the game,” said head coach, John Troxell. “He will prove to be a tremendous asset in the resurrection of F&M’s football tradition.”
