Who says you can’t go home again.

Rossignol scored over 2,200 points for the Crusaders. He went on to play at UMaine where he scored over 1,200 points for the Black Bears.
His daughter, Parise, also scored 2,000 points at Van Buren. She went on to play at UMaine and is currently an assistant coach for the Black Bears women’s team.
One of Rossignol’s sons, Andre, recently was named varsity boys soccer coach at Caribou.
Matt started his coaching career at Houlton High School. For the past two decades he has coached and taught at Madawaska High School.
