Video Transcript comments

Gavin wanted everybody who played Ultimate to have fun, enjoy and learn.

"He touched by so many and so many know you as a pillar of the community. You exude what the sport is about, the spirit, and the kindness, the fun."

"As he was on Big Fish, you know you’re going to be playing against a good player. I recall him inviting both teams back to his place to have ribs, and explained what Ultimate in Ottawa was to him. He said to focus on meeting new people and having a good time. He's a community builder at its finest."

"Gavin, it’s because of you I made many friends. You taught me all about the game."

"He's always been a builder of relationships, communities and teams. You’re the best Gavin!"

Congrats on this well-earned award!
