The six-time Pro Bowl selection who will enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this year, enjoyed eight incredible years with the San Francisco 49’ers before standout seasons in Philadelphia, Dallas and Cincinnati, brings his unique perspective to what will surely be another sold-out event.

“Terrell is one of the most colourful personalities the game of football has ever known and he has a great story to tell,” said Jamie Taras, the club’s director of community relations. “This is going to be a one-of-a-kind event that fans of football will not want to miss.”

Celebrating its 15th year and having raised more than $900,000, the Orange Helmet Awards is a marquee event on the BC Lions calendar. Proceeds from the night support amateur football in the province of British Columbia and honour champions at all levels from last season.

Created by Lions late president and CEO Bob Ackles, the awards also recognize pioneers of the sport in our province, outstanding coaches and those who have spent years in support of grassroots football development.
