Longfields Davidson Heights is excited to have Mark Hatfield as a motivational speaker for our grade 8 students on the first day of school!
Mark is a member of Motivate Canada’s Self Esteem Team and he delivers a powerful message on resiliency, his road to success, and how he got there.
Mark’s extraordinary story is well documented. After graduating from Bishop’s University, Mark earned a spot with the National Football League’s Miami Dolphins and later played for the Houston Oilers and Detroit Lions…
In 1997, he moved back to Canada, and joined the B.C. Lions football club of the Canadian Football League. Beyond football, Mark created and starred in short segments entitled, “the retired CFL guy”, for the comedy network’s “game face” series.
He also hosted the “big bad sports show” on Rogers cable for two seasons and has been a frequent guest on TSN’s “Off the record with Michael Landsberg.” Mark is also the founder and head trainer for Hatfield’s athletic development centre and a professional firefighter with the city of Ottawa. In his spare time, he sleeps.
