Dear David:

What a truly inspiring man this Edmonton Eskimo, Mr. Graeme Bell is. Here he is minding his own business at a bar just relaxing with friends on May XIIth, MMVII when he was viciously attacked by some ruffians with a baseball bat in the great city of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. He was hit in the head and had brain and internal neurological injuries. Told he would never fully recover, gain his cognitive function back & even ever play football again, he had surgery & wound up returning to the grid iron just three months later.

He did a lot of reading II be able II gain his cognitive and thinking ability's back. So now that he can think straight again and operate fully as a football player with his athletic prowess back at full strength, he has volunteered himself as an educational promoter IV the Eskimos. Showing students that even he can as a brain injured person can come back stronger than ever will certainly serve the purpose of keeping many Edmontonian students II stay strong in mind by completing their education. Perhaps even going on to technical &/or post-secondary institutions.

A Great Community Play By Play Call,
