The David Mantel
Memorial Athletic
Scholarship

This scholarship has been established in memory of David Mantel ‘99 who served as Redeemer's Athletic Director from 2005-2021. As a Redeemer student, David played both indoor and outdoor soccer during which time he took home the MVP of indoor soccer (1997-1998) and was awarded the Scholar-Athlete award for athletic and academic success. While serving in the role of Athletic Director, David was the head coach of the men's soccer team for 11 years, won OCAA Coach of the year in 2003-2004 and coached the 2007-2008 men's indoor soccer team to a Provincial Championship.

A Legacy of Christian Character

David had a passion for athletes who competed at the top of their game while honouring Jesus Christ in all things. He was a strong advocate for using lessons in sport as a springboard for meaningful discussions about faith and life.

“Dave was an example of Christian character to the entire Redeemer community both on and off the field. He dedicated himself to developing Redeemer student athletes, preparing them to follow Christ as they pursued excellence in sport and in their careers. We are honoured to celebrate his life and share his legacy through the scholarship."

David Zietsma, interim president
