This year, Nissan Canada enters their third season with their popular youth program, the Nissan Kickoff Project. The program, supported by the CFL, maintains the goal of providing necessities to teams that they are lacking, including coaching, a place to play, training material, and equipment. The program runs across Canada in over 25 cities, covering 8 provinces and assisting 26 teams.
Crocus Plains was selected to receive a donation of new shoulder pads and shirts. Birchwood Nissan Brandon on behalf of Nissan Canada delivered the equipment on September 8th, 2016.
The evening was filled with emotion, as the Crocus Plains Plainsmen were honouring their longtime mentor and coach Kevin Boyd, who passed away suddenly on February 29th, 2016. Boyd, a seasoned CFL player touched many lives over his life through his football career, vast knowledge and smile.
A big thank you to those who attended and made this special evening a reality.
