On July 22, Canada beat host Mexico 13-7 to win the world junior championship of American football in Mexico City’s Olympic Stadium, before almost 33,000 people.
Bowen Island, B.C. broadcaster Jim Mullin was there.
Mullin is the voice of university and amateur football in Canada and called the play-by-play for Krown Countdown U on CBCSports.ca.
Football is a game in flux, dealing with challenges like demographic shifts in major cities and brain injuries suffered by players past and present. The game does have a future on the international scene, where the International Federation of American Football oversees four-down and flag tournaments. In a feature interview with host Bob Mackin, Mullin talks about gridiron in Mexico.
