“Being a super fan for a team that truly values their fans is amazing. It’s such a great feeling to know how much the players appreciate the passion we have for them and that it helps fuel them on the field!” Dave Strobel
For many, the CFL season is a time to pull out your favourite team’s jersey, paint black warrior lines under your eyes and take in a game or two with friends.
A six-year season ticket holder, before each Lions’ home game, Dave spends three hours in preparation: one hour to paint his face in his pride’s colours and two more to get the drums together and head down to the unofficial tailgate party where he and the other “diehards” wait for the doors to open.
With this level of passion for his team, it only seemed fitting that we recognize Dave with our partners at the Lions and crown him our #AllHeartLions Super Fan. Along with the title, he was awarded the chance to bring his passion for the Lions on the road by embarking on the BC Lions Operation Orange fan experience. From flying alongside his gridiron heroes, to enjoying a VIP BC Lions away game, Operation Orange was the ultimate experience for this life-long football fan.
