University of St. Michael's College
The Lex Byrd Award
The University of St. Michael's College has built a reputation as a sports college, thanks in large part to Lex Byrd's legendary 15 years of coaching. Under Lex's guidance, St. Mike's men's intramural football team emerged as a dominant force in the Mulock Cup League; St. Mike's was home to the Mulock Cup from '81 to '84 and '90 to '93.
Lex has also served as referee for the St. Mike's annual Boozer Brown Alumni Student Touch Football Game for over 20 years, where he continues to be much loved by all.
To honour Lex's contribution to St. Mike's, a fund is being set up to establish the Lex Byrd Award to benefit a deserving St. Mike's student. Our goal is to endow this award with a minimum of $25,000.
