A final farewell for former OL Jean-Michel Sylvain #61

(Halifax, NS) Jean-Michel Sylvain, an offensive lineman on the championship Huskies football team from 2001, has died from osteosarcoma, a rare form of cancer on Saturday, May 21st.  Yesterday family and friends gathered in the Courtside Lounge, overlooking Huskies Stadium, to remember their friend and teammate.  Sylvain, a member of the powerful SMU team was named the AUS most outstanding lineman and was a candidate for the J.P. Metras Trophy, awarded to the best lineman in the country.  The Huskies' family extend their sincere sympathy to his family and thank all those who joined together yesterday.   Photo courtesy of Mona Ghiz, Sylvain #61 and teammates.
