ABOUT THE DIVISION

He was the president of the Sudbury Spartans and gave much of his time and financial resources to them for decades. When the group began to talk about organizing a youth football league to honor Joe, Phil Smith Sr was instrumental in financially backing the league and made the purchase of equipment possible.

Phil Smith Sr has been inducted into the NFC hall of fame and the Greater Sudbury sports Hall of fame for his contributions to football.
