MISSISSAUGA, Ont. Nissan Canada recently announced the second annual Nissan All-Canadian TITAN team, comprised of 70 notable high school football athletes from 49 communities and nine provinces across Canada. 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 their experience, the high school student-athletes will meet and train with peers from across Canada, attend the 2019 CFL Awards, play in an exhibition game on November 23 at Shouldice Athletic Park, and watch the 107th Grey Cup Championship game live at McMahon Stadium.
“Nissan Canada recognizes the invaluable influence sports have on athletes from a young age, and how football can nurture leadership qualities that athletes then take off the field and into their classrooms and communities,” said Steve Rhind, director of marketing, Nissan Canada Inc. “The Nissan All-Canadian TITAN team celebrates individual football athletes who were nominated by members of their own community for exemplifying admirable ‘TITAN’ values, and we’re excited to welcome these players from across Canada and reward them with a memorable Grey Cup experience.”
The 2019 Nissan All-Canadian TITAN team were nominated by players, coaches, family and friends for demonstrating the following TITAN values on their team, in the classroom, and throughout their community. After reviewing the nomination submissions, the players were elected to join the 2019 Nissan All-Canadian TITAN team. The team was chosen by a four-person celebrity judging panel that included: Brodie Lawson, CFL Host; Bryan Baeumler, HGTV Host; Jesse Lumsden, former CFL player and three-time Olympian; and Travis Lulay, former CFL player and BC Lions Business Operations.
