Former CFL kicker to help Grizzlies

Former B.C. Lions and Calgary Stampeders kicker Duncan O'Mahoney will help the G.W. Graham Grizzlies in their inaugural season.

Former Canadian Football League all-star and Grey Cup champion Duncan O’Mahony is joining the G.W. Graham coaching staff as a guest coach, helping the kickers in the new program.

O’Mahony, a former B.C. Lion and Calgary Stampeder, agreed to help the Grizzlies with their spring and fall camps, focusing on the highly specialized area of young kickers.

“We are so fortunate to have a former all-star kicker right in our own back yard in Chilliwack,” noted special teams coordinator Jeff Whitehead. “Duncan will be an incredible asset to our program, and be able to get things out of these young kickers that we may not see otherwise.”

The Grizzlies junior varsity team kicks off their season in Portland (Oregon) on Sep. 1, with exhibition games in Surrey and Nanaimo the following two weeks. Spring camp opens May 21 with an exhibition game in Langley June 1.
