Congratulations to Coach Steve De Lazzari for being recognized as the Scholastic Coach of the Year at the 15th Annual Orange Helmet Awards. The Orange Helmet Awards, awarded by the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League, celebrate the achievements of individuals involved in amateur football in British Columbia.
The Orange Helmet Awards Committee chose Coach De Lazzari based on his commitment and dedication to coaching amateur football. With the passing of STMC head football coach Bernie Kully, Class of 1994, in September after a year-long battle with cancer, Coach De Lazzai guided the pre-season unranked Varsity football team to an undefeated season until a loss in the provincial semi-finals. The Orange Helmet Award Committee generously bestowed a gift in Coach De Lazzari's name to the St. Thomas Moore Knights Football program.
