David Low named new Commissioner

By Press release , 01/06/22, 5:30PM CST


WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg High School Football League (WHSFL) is pleased to announce the appointment of David Low as its new commissioner. Low takes over for interim commissioner Rick Henkewich, who previously held the role for six years in the mid to late 2010s.

Low has plenty of experience within the football community. From 2015-17, he was the President of the Fort Garry Lions Football Club, and in 2017 he received the Brown-Ransby Award in recognition of inspirational contribution to the success of the program.

Beginning in 2017, Low shifted his talents to the Manitoba Minor Football Association (MMFA). He was on the MMFA’s executive that year, where he was the convenor for the cruncher and atom levels. The following year he expanded his role, becoming Vice President and Head Registrar, and over the last three seasons he’s served as the MMFA’s President. In 2019, Low served in a dual role, which included filling in for a vacant First Vice President while continuing as Head Registrar.

Professionally, for the past 21 years, Low has been the owner and operator of Sound Concepts Inc., which specializes in custom acoustical ceiling and wall panel manufacturing. The volunteer bug runs through his veins, in part because of watching his dad Reg give back as the Campaign Chairman of United Way, President of the Manitoba Club and executive for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (President from 1994-15, inducted into the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Hall of Fame in 2012).

“I felt I'd accomplished all I could in minor football with the MMFA and am extremely excited to enhance the partnership between the MMFA and WHSFL,” Low said. 

“I have a proven track record in my time at the MMFA of working closely with Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Football Manitoba and feel these successful relationships will go far in growing those organizations relationships with WHSFL moving forward.”
