SCC Teacher Mike Fabiilli to be inducted into the University of Ottawa Football Hall of Fame
St. Charles College teacher Mike Fabiilli has one more reason to celebrate this year. In addition to winning a Senior Boys’ City Football Championship this past fall, he is also going to be inducted into the University of Ottawa Football Hall of Fame April 30th in Ottawa.
Fabiilli was a student at St. Charles College from 1977-1982. He played five years of football for the school winning three City Championships.
In 1982 he went to the University of Ottawa to play for the Gee Gees. As a freshman linebacker he won the Peter Gorman Trophy for outstanding CIS freshman football player in Canada. He was a conference all-star linebacker for two seasons.
After graduation, Fabiilli returned to Sudbury to start his teaching career at St. Charles College. He has been a math teacher and football coach at SCC for the past twenty-nine years. He has helped guide the Cards to ten City Championships in football.
Fabiilli has also served as a Defensive Co-ordinator for the Sudbury Spartans for eight seasons and the Sudbury Gladiators for five. He also co-founded the Joe MacDonald Youth Football League in Sudbury.
Mike continues to coach with passion and conviction and imparts in his players a love for the game and all of life’s lessons that can be gained from playing it.
