Paul Wilson to be Inducted into U of T Sports Hall of Fame

On Wednesday, June 4th the University of Toronto's Faculty of Physical Education and Health and the T-Holders' Association celebrated and honoured five great athletes, an extraordinary group of U of T athletics, builders and a pair of outstanding national championship teams. Included in this group was inductee Paul S.B. Wilson (Trinity College, 6T4).

A competitive leader encompasses everything that Paul S. B. Wilson has represented all his life in sport, both on and off the playing field.

P.S.B. arrived at U of T in 1960 and personified U of T rugby throughout his four year career. During his time with the Varsity Blues, the men's rugby squad earned four-straight Ontario titles, with Paul, the U of T team captain, leading the league in scoring in all four of those seasons. He was also an important part of the U of T squash team during the 1963-64 academic year.

Paul graduated from Trinity College in 1964 and capped off his Varsity days at U of T by being named the recipient of the George M. Biggs Trophy, which is awarded to the male graduating student-athlete who contributed most to U of T in the areas of leadership, sportsmanship and performance.

In 1966, Paul moved to Peterborough, Ontario's Trent University where he served as the athletic director from 35 years. As well as volunteering countless hours organizing tournaments and serving as an official and administrator both at home and abroad, Paul was also a well-respected local politician and was elected as Town Ward from 1985 to 1997, while also serving on the Trent University Board of Directors.

Back on the competitive circuit, Paul was a six-time city squash champion and a two-time provincial champion. He was a finalist in world, Canadian and US masters championships, and for all his effort as an athlete and administrator, in 2001 he was inducted into the Peterborough and District Sports Hall of Fame.

This year's event took place at Trinity College's George Ignatieff Theatre (15 Devonshire Place) on the campus of the University of Toronto.
