Chris Flynn named Football Canada Director of Sponsorship
Former university standout and current business professional, Chris Flynn has joined Football Canada as its director of sponsorship.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to be working with Football Canada and am determined to help build a strong sponsorship program for amateur football across Canada,” said Flynn.
A Buckingham, Quebec native, Flynn is the only three time Hec Crighton winner, the trophy that is given to the most outstanding Canadian university football player. A dominant Saint Mary’s quarterback, he still holds Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) records for single-season passing touchdowns (30, 27) and career passing touchdowns (87), despite only playing four seasons (1987-90) with the Huskies. In his four years at Saint Mary’s University (SMU), Flynn led the Huskies to a 27-2 regular season record on his way to four consecutive national semi-final appearances. The feat marked a dramatic turnaround for a SMU team with only a single win to its name the previous three seasons.
In 2011, Flynn became the first amateur player to be inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame since Gordon Perry in 1970 and the first to be inducted based purely on his university accomplishments. In 2014, he was named the top player in CIS football history while earlier this year he entered the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame.
Flynn has previously served as the National Advertising Sales Director with the Real Estate News Exchange and also as a Territory Sales Representative with the Herjavec Group.
