    I had the pleasure of being taught Phys Ed by Tony Proudfoot between 1976-1979 at Dawson. Not only was he an inspiration & motivator - but he also gave me the extra confidence, compassion & support as well as being by my side when I was going through 15 extensive operations & physiotherapy treatments during this time when my left hand was mangled in an accident while I was attending Dawson.

    You are an unbelievable inspiration! I cheered for you in '77 from the highest row of the upper deck at the Big Owe...had no idea you had done what you'd done with the staples in your shoes...thanks for being you!
