Remembering former T-Birds
running back Kory Nagata
July 18, 2020
Kory’s young life was cut short in a tragic accident at the age of 24. He was an extraordinary young man with an incredibly promising future, beloved and respected by his teammates, coaches, and friends. He made his family immeasurably proud. His loss will be felt deeply by all members of the football community.
Kory had recently graduated with a 3.7 GPA from the University of British Columbia’s Sauder School of Business, where he was a Thunderbirds running back. He was recognized in 2019 for academic and athletic excellence by the Governor General’s U Sports Academic All-Canadian Commendation, given to exceptional student-athletes.
The 13th Man Foundation and it's Board of Directors offer our deepest condolences to the Nagata family as well as Kory's friends, teammates, and coaches. In honor of Kory the 13th Man Foundation has made a $1000 donation to the Kory Nagata Memorial Fund
