Football fame

Recognition: Wide receiver receives prestigious Courage to Casey Award.

Several awards: Jordan Grieve gets top honours for UBC Thunderbirds.

Salmon Arm’s Jordan Grieve was honoured at the UBC Thunderbirds Football Awards Gala in Vancouver on Nov 30.

Grieve, as voted by the players,  received honour for the player that inspired them the most – for the second year in a row.

He was also awarded his helmet as a fifth-year player and, in the words of Coach Shawn Olsen, “Jordan has inspired me to be a better person and coach.”

Lastly, Grieve received the Courage to Casey Award that is given annually to the football player who consistently demonstrates courage, discipline, commitment and dedication to UBC Thunderbirds Football.

Grieve played five years at UBC and holds a record for the longest catch/run touchdown in UBC, and is second overall in receptions and yards in football history at UBC.

Grieve is eighth all time in CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) West for receptions and yards and 30th all time in CIS.
