The head coach of the Grey Cup Champion Ottawa RedBlacks, Rick Campbell, will be the keynote speaker at the 2017 Gee-Gees Football Touchdown Dinner. 

The event, hosted at the Fairmont Château Laurier on April 29, will honour the accomplishments of three new Gee-Gees Hall of Fame inductees: Gord Weber, Lukas Shaver, and Kevin Kelly. Tickets are on sale online for $175 each with tables of 10 available. Registration is open to all alumni, family, and friends of the Gee-Gees football program. The registration deadline is April 21.

Campbell was in attendance at the 2016 Touchdown Dinner when RedBlacks receiver Brad Sinopoli was inducted. This year he will take to the podium himself, sharing stories from this year’s triumphant championship as well as his impressive background in football. Campbell is a three-time Grey Cup champion and he has been coaching professionally since 1996.
