Pete Regimbald (second from left) with the 1971 Loyola Warriors Football coaching staff.
Coach Reg started his university career in 1968, as a full-time assistant coach to the legendary Montreal Alouette star and Loyola Warrior coach George Dixon. He is best known as an authority on special teams play, and is credited with key support for the Concordia Stingers' record-setting 1998 campaign —when the team finished in first place in the regular season, won the Dunsmore Cup as Ontario-Quebec champions, and triumphed at the university's first-ever Atlantic Bowl.
With the support of his wife Diane, Coach Reg has coached and encouraged many student athletes over the years. Whether it was his famous warm-up drill (Crab, crab, crab, roll!) or his constant presence, Coach Reg has had a profound impact on the sport.
About the award
The life of a student athlete can be gruelling. It's a constant challenge to leave everything you have out on the field, only to head home, dig deep and find something more so you can study.
Under such intense pressure, varsity athletes need all the support they can get.
Coach Reg retired in 2019 after 50 years on the field. There has never been a better time to honour his contributions and give to a football award in his name.
His wish is to endow the award so that student athletes on the Stingers football team will be supported for years to come;
Proceeds will benefit a varsity football athlete, providing financial support and recognizing hard work and commitment to the team.
