Alberta Sport Development Centre SE brings Grey Cup champion Nate Coehoorn to MHC
February 23, 2016
On Thursday, February 25, 2016, Nate Coehoorn, a Canadian football wide receiver for the Edmonton Eskimos, will be at Medicine Hat College (MHC) speaking about his path to the Canadian Football League (CFL) and ultimately winning the Grey Cup championship.
Entitled Leadership, Team and Sacrifice, the session is being hosted by the Alberta Sport Development Centre SE (ASCD-SE) from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in room S159. There is no cost to attend and everyone is welcome.
“Beyond the fact that Nate is my brother and I know he’s a great guy, I know that attendees will gain some valuable advice from him. He’s local, inspirational, hardworking and humble,” says Cory Coehoorn, coordinator. “I think that hearing from a professional who has gone through the steps, trials and tribulations to become an elite athlete is of value to our community.”
Nate was selected in the first round (5th overall) by the Eskimos in the 2011 CFL draft and re-signed both in 2013 and 2015. Prior to that he played for the University of Calgary’s Dinos where he earned Canadian West All-Star honours for three consecutive seasons. Coehoorn also played junior football with the Calgary Colts and Okanagan Sun. In his early years he attended Medicine Hat High School where he was a provincial champ.
“This event is part of our Winning Edge Seminars series,” says Cory. “Throughout the year, ASDC-SE hosts a number of events that help educate athletes, coaches and parents in our community. It’s one of many ways that we enhance the services available for these individuals. Really one of our main goals is to help our emerging athletes reach the next level of competition. We feel this presentation supports that.”
