Clipper Football Pride
It was a great week for Kelvin Clipper Football in the overall grand scheme of things. Junior Varsity Players Mohammed Irandost and Taye Frazier were named to the JV league All Star team. Varsity players Tristan Francis and Michael Raaflaub were named to the Potter Division league All Star team as well. Michael was awarded the Elite Performance Center Offensive Player of the year in the Potter Division. In addition Michael was awarded the prestigious Harry Hood award for the Winnipeg High school football league. This award is given out annually to the most outstanding player which includes performance on the field, scholastic achievement, school involvement and community involvement. This award is named after Harry Hood who is also a Kelvin Alumni. Harry himself upon graduation went to 5 straight Grey Cups with two teams before succumbing to Cancer at the age of 28. This award now comes with a 500 dollar scholarship awarded by the Winnipeg Blue Bomber Alumni Association chaired by Paul Robson another Kelvin Alumni.
The Kelvin Clippers will be represented not only in this year’s Vanier Cup final with Kelvin Clipper Alumni Liam Haime suiting up for the University of British Columbia Thunder Birds but also In the 103rd Grey Cup by Kelvin Clipper Alumni Eddie Steele and Donald Oramasionwu for the Edmonton Eskimos. Kelvin is proud to see Clipper Pride and tradition represented throughout the many generations of football in Canada.
