Football Coach
    His college prospects were limited as a result of being married at the age of 17.
    He turned down a chance to play for the Giants for more money, cause his wife preferred Edmonton over New York City.
    His nickname with the Eskimos was 'Ol' Spaghetti Legs.'
    He came out of retirement with the Lions three years after playing his last game with the Argos.
    He guided the Eskimos to an embarrassing lopsided loss in the Grey Cup game (1986).
    He overcame both a ruptured appendix and a bout of necrotizing fasciitis (the flesh eating disease) which nearly cost him his leg.
    He excelled on both the offensive and defensive positions of the ball.
    He was a member of three consecutive Grey Cup championship teams (1954, 1955, 1956).
    He was considered a legend in Edmonton, and had a park in the city named in his honour.
    He was forced to resign from coaching, due to medical reasons two games into the 1987 season.
