Brent Kellington was commended for his work in the football community.
Kellington, the vice-president of the Fort Sask Minor Football board, was given recognition at the Eskimos' game on Friday night (Jun.22). He was congratulated during a break in front of over 30,000 fans.
"You don't do these things for that (recognition). You do it for the kids, future generations and to have a good program," he said.
Kellington was nominated for his contributions as a coach, his time on the board and efforts to bring Taurus Field to Fort Saskatchewan.
"To be there up on the screen, to be honoured was really neat. It's the launch of their (Eskimos) 70th season, there was legends literally in the stands and on the field as well."
For his work, the Fort Saskatchewan resident scored a couple tickets to the game and an Eskimos hat.
His name was submitted by a fellow board member.
"I know this represents a lot of people, not just me. So, for me to be the one who gets the credit was extra special."
The honour is part of a season-long commitment to other football community builders from the CFL organization.
