Local football athletes will have a chance to hear from one of the greats this June; Anthony Calvillo set to visit GP

One of football’s greatest quarterback’s is making a trip to Grande Prairie later this spring. The Grande Prairie Alliance Church and the St. Joseph’s Celtics are hosting An Evening with Anthony Calvillo, who was a quarterback for the Las Vegas Posse, the Hamilton Tiger Cats, and of course, the Montreal Alouettes. Vince Rempel, who is a St Joe’s football parent, says a player of Calvillo’s stature visiting the city is extremely exciting for local athletes.

“He’s accomplished everything that can be accomplished in football. He’s won titles, he’s won MVP’s. I think it’s something that the boys here in Grande Prairie, whether it’s the Celtics or whether it’s other football teams, can learn from in the future.”

Celtics football Coach Trevor Prichard says he hopes thinks his athletes will be able to appreciate this opportunity for a long time.

“I think it’s going to sink in ten years from now when they ‘hey, you know, I was there, I saw him, I got his message and I understood what that was from. And I don’t think it’s just about football. I think Anthony Calvillo, from what I’ve read, has a very powerful message to give everybody, in life.”
