SASKATCHEWAN INDIAN      APRIL 1976      v06 n04 p49  
Saskatoon - Malcolm Constant, 22, was awarded a Tom Longboat Medal recently in this city.

The James Smith individual is no stranger to the field of sports. An avid sports performer, Malcolm, led his reserve fast ball team winning various championships.

Malcolm is currently involved with the youth on the James Smith Indian reserve. Being the recreation director he is preparing the youth for participation at the Indian Summer Games.

On the ice he leads the reserve's senior hockey team in play and in leadership. He led the team in scoring this past hockey season.

Off the ice, Malcolm's presence is probably well known in fast ball. He lead the Rx Redman to the FSI provincial fast ball title.

His pitching feats are well known by those who play against him. Out of 15 fast ball tournaments, 13 of them were won, largely due to his pitching.

He has won pitching awards, the Canadian National and the North American pitching titles.

Alex Bellegarde, FSI Executive member, made the presentation. In attendance during the presentation were Malcolm's parents and family.

The Tom Longboat medal is awarded annually to an Indian individual who excels in sports and has made valuable contributions. Each province elects a medal winner and the Tom Longboat award winner is selected from them.
