Scott Gilroy: the captain

For two seasons now, Scott has served as captain of the Bears soccer team, one of Canada’s most dominant amateur soccer clubs. A centerback, Scott commands one of Western Canada’s toughest defensive lines, and he does so with grace. What’s most impressive, however, is that this ease translates into other aspects of his life. It is very rare to meet a person that checks-off every box as well as Scott. On the pitch, Scott is an all-star player in the Canada West Conference, quick on his feet, a stoic penalty-taker and able tackler. He has also been known to play through pain, simply for the good of his team and university community.

Scott is a talented academic, set for an impressive career in kinesiology. What really sets Scott apart, however, is his personality: it is rare that one meets a person as charismatic, kind, athletic, intelligent and engaging. When you meet Scott, you meet  him, which is not something that can be said about most people one encounters.

In four years, Scott has packed an impressive amount into his undergraduate, and his fifth-year, a final chance at CIS Championships, indicates that much of the same will take place in 2013.
