Warriors Shine Off The Field Too

The Ottawa REDBLACKS reached out yesterday afternoon to line-up volunteers to help at today’s 105th Grey Cup to manage snow and ice.  No pay.  No glory.  Definitely some inconvenience and a 10 hour shift outside where they would more than likely be half frozen when they are done.

We reached out to our Warriors alumni for 16-21 year old volunteers and we just want to say how proud we are (but not surprised) of the boys who stepped up to volunteer to help work at today’s Grey Cup.  These young men led by example on the field when they were with us and continue to now in their community as Warriors alumni.  THANK YOU to Ryan Pacholik, Nick Simms, Demian Gonzalez, Shayne Forsyth, and Kyle Waucaush.

 

Football is all about community; being selfless; acting on a need; pitching in; and resolve to lead by example.  These 5 Warriors Alumni clearly get that.  THANKS LADS!!! #Warriors4Life
