This inductee firmly believes “the whole is more important than the individual.” Not surprisingly, Chris' sporting career is a testament to team success—beginning with his experience on Ridley’s champion cricket and hockey teams. He went on to play cricket as a member of both the Toronto District League and the Ontario Provincial team, earning numerous championship titles throughout the late '70s and '80s.
Chris' cricket career expanded to include international competitions as a member of the World Cup team in 1979, where, in the first game, he recalls opening the batting for Canada and facing the legendary Imran Khan—who has since gone on to become Pakistan’s Prime Minister. Throughout the years, Chris has remained committed to building the sport of cricket for future generations as both a coach and a member of the International Cricket Council.
“While individualism is always welcome as a part of a team, the importance of everyone pulling together trumps all else.”
