David Sidoo

On December 7, 2016, David Sidoo learned that he will join a list of distinguished and wildly accomplished individuals who have the honour to receive the prestigious WAC Bennet Award from the BC Sports Hall of Fame.

David was selected based on his numerous and widely varied contributions to sport in the province of BC and across Canada, not the least of which is his deep passion and undying support for the UBC Thunderbirds football team.

Roughly 3 years ago, David directed his passion for his alma mater into the 13th Man Foundation, a group of almuni spearheaded by David who raise and direct substantial funds and energy to support the football team. The 13th Man Foundation has had an incredible impact on the team, including claiming the title of 2015 Vanier Cup Champions.

David and the other 2017 inductees comprise the 51st induction class for the BC Sports Hall of Fame.
