Description: Slightly faded black and white photograph taken from inside a football helmet so it looks as if one is getting the perspective of a football player. Visible in the picture is the coach who is explaining his plan, drawn on the chalkboard, to the players. The name of the team could possibly be the "Colts" as this is indicated on the back of one of the jerseys.

The Colt's was a team involved with Mississauga Football League. The league was founded in the early 1970s by Peter Martin, a former player for the Toronto Argonauts. The league offers kids, aged 9 to 16, the opportunity to play football at a young age in preparation for high school or college football. Mr. Martin served as the league's president, coach and director. Martin moved to Mississauga in 1965 and ended his CFL career in 1972. (Source: The Toronto Star, May 23, 1991. Pg W.10)
