Evans, who is of Wichita descent, says he wants to inspire and empower Indigenous youth.

“My parents instilled in me the importance of paying it forward and it’s something I’ve always tried to prioritize, specifically with the youth,” said Evans prior to the event. “I hope the kids come out, have a great time and they too can realize the importance of paying it forward, regardless of who you are or how successful you may be.”

The initiative was created by Evans and the Ticats in partnership with Liuna.

Play it Forward also provides 20 tickets for Indigenous youth to attend each of the Ticats’ nine home games with sideline access during pre-game to watch warm-up.
