On September 24, 2014 David Sidoo learned that he would be inducted into the BC Football Hall of Fame as this year’s recipient of the prestigious CFL Bob Ackles Award. Sponsored by the CFL, the Bob Ackles Award is given annually for outstanding contribution to Canadian Football.
Bob Ackles was the founder of the BC Football Hall of Fame and had devoted more than 50 years of his life to football in British Columbia before he died in 2008. The highly revered and decorated champion for football in BC dreamt of creating the BC Football Hall of Fame as a legacy to honour football heroes past, present and future.
“The vision of the British Columbia Football Hall of Fame is to recognize individuals who positively influence the sport of football in British Columbia, and to honour football heroes past and present.”
David and the fifteen other inductees in categories including Athlete, Builder, Pioneer, Team, Media and Special Award will be officially inducted in a private ceremony on October 11, 2014. Fans will have a chance to salute the entire 2014 Class that same night as part of the Amateur Football halftime at the BC Lions vs. Ottawa Redblacks game at BC Place Stadium.
This is David’s second induction into the BC Football Hall of Fame. In 2012, David was inducted as part of the legendary 1982 UBC Thunderbirds Football team.
