gbconnect

This Friday George Brown Athletics kicks off 50th Athletics Homecoming with #GBConnect: Beyond the Bench, featuring an impressive set of speakers in the Casa Loma Campus Athletic Centre.

Tessa Bonhomme won an Olympic Gold Medal with the Canadian women’s hockey team in the 2010 Games in Vancouver. The Sudbury native played her collegiate hockey at Ohio State, where she was the Buckeyes Most Valuable Freshmen and the first player from the program named both the WCHA Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year. Her broadcasting career includes a stint with Leafs TV, and she currently hosts TSN’s SportsCentre.

Jack Armstrong is a broadcaster for the Toronto Raptors, appearing on both TSN and NBA TV Canada. The Brooklyn native was the head coach of Niagara University from 1989 to 1998, and he was named the New York State Division I Coach of the Year in 1992-93. His signature “Hello!” has made him a trademark voice in the city, and he has hosted a sports talk show on the Fan 590.

Other speakers include Vice President and Managing Director of NBA Canada Dan Mackenzie, Justin Bobb of MLSE Launchpad, Mark Palmer of Blue Jays Corporate Partnerships, and Rebecca Michael, Director of Hockey Operations with the Canadian Women’s Hockey League. All are graduates of George Brown’s Sport and Event Marketing Program.
