Camosun Chargers Hall of Fame

chargers 1On Friday night (Sept 27) I attended the Camosun Chargers tip-off dinner, auction and first ever Hall of Fame induction Ceremony.  Talk about a special night. As always the Chargers team members (students) were there dressed sharply and ready to help all their “guests” lighten their wallets just a bit. Athletes were stationed at every Silent Auction table offering wonderful encouragement and “coaching” as to how we should place our bids. As we sat down to Dinner the  MC for the evening , Mira from CTV Sports, turned over the mic to Chargers team members from all the represented sports. One of the students commented during his speech that they hope to be leaders in the future. Let me tell you, these student athletes achieve more than most people just in the two to 4 years they attend college. Their athletic ability is second to none but wait, there’s more, these “kids” are smart. Really smart. They achieve some incredible academic scores, scores that anyone without the rigorous training schedule of a Chargers team member would be proud to have.  Watching and listening to these students speak like professional presenters had me thinking to myself, “these young men and ladies and leaders now and we are so lucky to have them in our community.” Credit must also go to the incredible coaches and the support and administration staff that pull the Chargers program together. A true example of the statement, “anythings possible.”
