Olivier-Job named All-Canadian
Fourth year sweeper Tevin Olivier-Job of the Sea-Hawks soccer team has
been named to the Canadian Interuniversity Sport second Team All-Canadian
for the second year in a row. Last year Mr. Olivier-Job was named to the
All-Canadian team marking the first time a Memorial Mens soccer
player received the honour. Last week Mr. Olivier-Job was also named to
the AUS first Team All-Stars.
From Winnipeg, Mr. Olivier-Job came to Memorial four years ago and has
been the highlight of the Sea-Hawks defence. This year, with such a young
team suiting up for the Sea-Hawks, Mr. Olivier-Job became the backbone
of the team.
Mr. Olivier-Job played 90 minutes in all 11 games for the Sea-Hawks and
received player of the game honours three times. Along with his defensive
play, Mr. Olivier-Job was to contribute offensively, distributing the
ball to his teammates as well as adding two goals.
During the 2002-2003 season Mr. Olivier-Job also represented his home
province of Manitoba in the 2002 Challenge Cup Nationals. His play on
the backline during this tournament caused trouble for the opponents and
helped his team win the National Title handing an overtime loss to Newfoundland
and his Sea-Hawk teammate Richard Kelly. Coach Scott Betts is extremely
pleased with Mr. Olivier-Jobs play and the award.
It's great that Tevin is given this recognition, he is a team leader
and well respected for his talents amongst his teammates and throughout
the league. Next year will be Mr. Olivier-jobs last year of
