According to Drew Edward on his scratching post...
[b]"The team has annouced that former Ticat Al Brenner has died.
Brenner spent seven seasons in the CFL with the Ticats (1971-74), Winnipeg Blue Bombers (1975) and Ottawa Rough Riders (1975-77). Brenner's 15 interceptions in 1972 still stand as a single-season CFL record, while his 37 interceptions and 485 interception return yards with the Ticats rank as the second-highest totals in team history.
But many will likely remember Brenner as the guy that left his family in Burlington and didn't contact them for 12 years. It was detailed in this Fifth Estate story."[/b]
A great Tiger Cat.
Rest in peace Al.
