NC’s own associate vice president of Research and Innovation could be found playing touch football on April 22 with Pinball Clemons, Damon Allen, Jordan Younger and a few other past and current Argonauts.
The event was the fifth Annual OCHO Bowl, a 4-team mini-tournament his league holds each year in honour of Peter “OCHO” Singh, one of his former comrades who was died of a heart attack at age 40. All proceeds from the event went to the Pinball Clemons Fondation. Nantel’s team has contributed $23,000 in the first four years, building a school or two in Kenya. Good fun and good cause.

“The ones where he’s lifting me in celebration are because I’d just made a diving pass break-up on 4th down near the goal line, thereby saving a touchdown,” says Nantel. “On the other where we are both jumping in the endzone, we combined for the PBU, both touching the ball (his vertical leap is better than mine, I must say).”
