Queen's football has advanced to the semifinals of the Ontario University Athletics playoffs with a win over the Carleton Ravens this past weekend. As fans wait for the team to continue their playoff push, they can tune into a new docuseries that highlights several stories in the team’s long history.

"We Are Golden” is a five-part series that follows Queen’s University football from 1915-1934. It was produced by local company VIVA Productions and is airing now on Bell Fibe TV.

“A testament to the incredible history of our university and our football program, we continue to set standards for university football in Canada,” says Steve Snyder, Head Coach of Queen’s football. “A must-see for the Queen’s and Kingston community and football fans nationwide.”

Viewers can learn about the team’s three-straight Grey Cup championships from 1922-1924, just a few years after the First World War and the Spanish Flu pandemic, as well as the story of Carl Voss, one of only three people to have their names etched on both the Grey Cup and the Stanley Cup.

"The men who were part of our docuseries have amazing stories that deserve to be brought to life once again. We want their legacies to live on, so their stories are not forgotten,” says Anthony Agostino, President and CEO of Agostino Media Group, which operates Viva Productions. “These moments may have happened a very long time ago, but a great story is a great story and these ones certainly have stood the test of time. We are honoured to have had the privilege to tell their tales and we hope viewers are entertained by each episode.”

The two-part series finale takes its audience through the story of the Fearless 14, about the 1934 season and the 14 players who remained and played after a quarter of the team was suspended.

‘We Are Golden’ is available on Bell Fibe TV, channel 1, and the Bell Fibe TV app.
