The head coach of the Mount Doug Rams Mark Townsend was named the Scholastic Coach of the Year at the annual B.C. Lions Orange Helmet Awards on April 14 at the Westin Bayshore in Vancouver. Townsend was both humbled and grateful to receive such an award, but one of the biggest highlights of the evening is that the keynote speaker was none other than the former CFL and NFL quarterback Jeff Garcia who gave an encouraging and uplifting talk to all of those who came to honor their local sports hero, Townsend.
The four-time Pro Bowl player and CFL four-time West Division All-Star played for the Calgary Stamperders for four years before switching over to the NFL. During his time playing American football, Garcia was a part of a number of teams such as the San Francisco 49s, Cleveland Browns, Detroit Lions, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Philadelphia Eagles and the Houston Texans. With such a colorful background in the sport, the California native had a lot to offer his listeners in talking about his experiences on and off the field.
Garcia was chosen to be the keynote speaker for this year’s Coach of the Year in Vancouver, Mark Townsend, who could definitely relate to the player both through sport and their adversity applied to it.
