The B.C. Catholic recently entered the Lions den to talk to offensive line coach Dan Dorazio:
Dan Dorazio truly loves his faith, his family, and his football. The B.C. Lions offensive line coach has coached for 40 years in college and pro ranks, 10 of those years in B.C. Along the way he has seen the highs and lows of the football business but has never lost sight of what matters.

"We live in a competitive environment, and the difference between success and failure is slim," Dorazio told The B.C. Catholic Nov. 2, one day before the Lions defeated the Saskatchewan Roughriders 17-6 in their final regular season game.

"It's a dog-eat-dog world we live in, but there is peace knowing that Jesus never moves and He is always there next to me."

Dorazio employs the motto of St. Ignatius of Loyola: "Pray as if everything depends on God. Work as if everything depends on you."
