I'm looking to get an Eskimos retro jersey from the 60s. It's my favourite one out of the ones the CFL shop offers. I wanna get "Chief" and a number on the back. My favourite numbers are 2 and 3, so I'd like to use one of those, but at the same time, I want a number that hasn't really been used by an Eskimos QB. Unfortunately, I can't find a list of Edmonton QBs online, so I thought I'd ask here. Does anyone know if any Edmonton QBs have ever worn 2 or 3?
OK, I managed to put together a decent list. Maybe someone with more knowledge can correct any mistake and/or fill in any blanks.
1954: Bernie Faloney (10)
1954-1962: Jackie Parker (12)
1955-1965: Don Getty (27/87)
1965-1968: Randy Kerbow (18?)
1967-1968: Frank Cosentino (11)
1970-1971: Don Trull (9/10)
1971-1979: Bruce Lemmerman (7/10/18)
1972-1981: Tom Wilkonson (12/16/19)
1978-1983: Warren Moon (1)
1983-1987: Matt Dunigan (16)
1985-1988: Damon Allen (9)
1987-1992: Tracy Ham (1/8)
1993-1994: Damon Allen (9)
1993-1994: Rickie Foggie (14?)
1995: Kerwin Bell (12)
1996-1997: Danny McManus (4/14)
1997-1999: Marcus Crandell (8)
1997-1998: Jimmy Kemp (14/15)
1998: David Archer (15/16/18)
1999: Nealon Greene (15/17)
2000-2010: Ricky Ray/Jason Maas (15/12)
So far no Edmonton QBs have worn 2 or 3.
What # did Bruce Lemmerman wear?
He played for the Eskimos from 1971-1979, and he wore 7, 10, and 18.
Edit: Just added Don Getty from 1955-1965.
Bernie Falony played QB for Edmonton, but only for one season which was in 1954. However, he was not famous in an Eskimo's uniform but was for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He wore jersey #10.
Thanks, Backer. I'll add him to the list.
I found a few more guys. I don't know how famous they are; I'm just trying to round out the list. :lol:
Rickie Foggie - 14 (I believe)
Thanks, cfl! :thup:
So far it doesn't look like any QB has worn #3. I may get lucky. :lol:
Wow their are names I never knew of or didn't realize they played for the Esks . good luck with #3 but on the back you should get "STAMPSSUCK"
Charlie Fulton is another one from the forgettable 60s! Can't remember what number he wore...
I brought up Edmonton Eskimo's alltime roster and didn't see Charlie Fulton on the list.
I had thought of mentioning Randy Kerbow, but your title to the thread included the word "famous" so I didn't bother. . . but as memory serves me (poorly) I seem to recall that he wasn't the starter per se but shared the duties with another QB, whose name totally escapes me. . .
Yeah, after a while I kind of got loose with the word "famous." :lol: I pretty much started a list of every QB who started for Edmonton.
Unfortunately, I couldn't mind much for that Fulton guy. I'll have to dig a little deeper.
Charlie Fulton: In 1965 he played college football (Quarterback) with the Tennessee Volunteers in the 10 team SEC. However, he may have been invited to training camp with the Eskimo's back then. I found this article by typing in football player charlie fulton on google.
Can't go wrong with #2 (Gizmo's #) or #3 (Terry Vaughan's #)
Charles "Charlie" Fulton played with the Esks in 68 and 69 wearing #18. He's on the Esks all time Alumni Honour Roll (http://www.edmontoneskimoalumni.com/news_honor_roll.htm)
here's a list of QBs between Jackie Parker leaving in '62 and Bruce Lemmerman and Larry Lawrence getting here in 1971:
