Hamilton, Ontario – Football Ontario announced that the organization has been able to bestow the 2023 Tyler Tsui Greatness Scholarship to one of our U18 Male Tackle athletes. The organization is pleased to announce that the recipient of this year’s scholarship is Andre Thompson.

This scholarship was created in 2022 by the organization’s Director of Sport, JT Tsui, to reward those young athletes who exemplify an ‘ALL IN’ mindset and embody the core values of Football Ontario. The recipient has had their 2023 Team Ontario fees paid for as a reward for their mindset and hard work.

Andre has demonstrated an ‘ALL IN’ mentality throughout the entire 2023 High-Performance process by staying engaged and truly giving it his all both for his own benefit as well as his teammates. He has continuously displayed a true passion for the game and an ability to inspire others through his actions.

“Congratulations to Andre for being awarded the 2023 Tyler Tsui Greatness Scholarship. The Tsui Greatness scholarships were created so that we could acknowledge, praise and celebrate Team Ontario student-athletes who exemplify what it means to be ALL IN. These scholarships allow our family to support Football Ontario’s mission of providing football for all. We are enthused to see how Andre’s journey to greatness continues to unfold.” says JT Tsui, Director of Sport for Football Ontario.

Andre has time and again demonstrated a mindset and passion that will not only help these young athletes in their future both on and off the field but also the many players he will play alongside.

Andre Thompson and the rest of the U18 Team Ontario Male Tackle team will be participating in the 2023 Canada Cup in Edmonton, AB. Their first game is on Sunday, July 10 at 8am ET so make sure to tune in to support the team.
