A familiar face in the athletics department of Sault College is on the road to a new position elsewhere.
Scott Gray, who served as manager of athletics at Sault College, is set to join Saint Mary’s University in Halifax as director, athletics and recreation. He is set to begin his new position on Nov. 6.
Gray had been involved in the athletics department at Sault College since 2006 where his responsibilities included overseeing the various athletic programs at the school. He also served as Ontario Collegiate Athletic Association president from 2014-17.
“My primary focus is on student engagement and student involvement in athletics and recreation on campus,” Gray said in a prepared statement on his new position. “I want to build on the proud traditions of the Huskies and also continue to promote our facilities as a place for recreation, wellness and community connection.”
A graduate of Queen’s University, Gray was an academic All-Canadian in football and won a Vanier Cup title while earning a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Physical Education.
In a statement, Saint Mary’s University President Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray called Gray “a seasoned athletics and recreation administrator who brings a holistic approach to athletics and recreation to our campus.”
“He understands the important role that sport, recreation, health and wellness play in student life at Saint Mary’s, and he will be an excellent support for our students, student-athletes, coaches, faculty and staff,” Summerby-Murray added.
Gray was a founding member of the Sault Minor Football League and had been heavily involved in the league since its inception.
