A little over 50 years ago, Lawson helped his “normal” school (what they called the Faculty of Education back in the day) touch football teammates win a championship game. He didn’t play football again until he was 67 years old. Now at 77 years old, he’s still going strong, which is evident by the below clip.
A little bit about the project
I started shooting what I’m currently calling “Why We Play”, a short documentary that features the PIT Football League in Winnipeg, Manitoba, this spring. The film is set to hit video on demand on MTS in Manitoba in 2016, and will be distributed internationally afterward.
