As Brock’s 50th Anniversary quickly approaches, Brock Alumni Relations continues to celebrate the upcoming milestone by delving into the University’s archives and sharing photos housed in Special Collections at the James A. Gibson Library at Brock. Photos were also obtained from the book: 40 Years Brock University Athletics A Pictorial History and Brock Athletics.

Do you recognize any of these athletes?
