West Ferris Trojan punches ticket to Grey Cup
James Piper of West Ferris Intermediate and Secondary School is among 70 Canadian high school football players named to the 2019 Nissan All-Canadian Titan team, which will travel to Calgary for a memorable 107th Grey Cup experience.
The 2019 Nissan All-Canadian Titan team, selected as part of the sixth-annual Nissan Kickoff Project, will travel to Calgary for a four-day sporting opportunity to experience the 107th Grey Cup festivities.
As part of the sporting experience, Piper will meet and train with peers from across Canada, attend the 2019 CFL Awards, play in an exhibition game on Nov. 23 at Shouldice Athletic Park, and watch Grey Cup live Nov. 24 at McMahon Stadium.
The honour last year was won by Mason McGriskin of the West Ferris Trojans.
The 2019 Nissan All-Canadian Titan team members were nominated by players, coaches, family and friends for demonstrating toughness, innovation, tenaciousness and ambition, as well as standing out for staying true to themselves and inspiring followers with their “authenticity, bravery and boldness.”
After reviewing the nomination submissions, the players selected to join the 2019 Nissan All-Canadian Titan team were chosen by a four-person celebrity judging panel that included CFL host Brodie Lawson, HGTV host Bryan Baeumler, and former CFL players Jesse Lumsden and Travis Lulay.
