[b]The 1962 Fog Bowl, the greatest Grey Cup you never saw.
"It was one of my best," Henley recalled this week. "I played the whole game, both ways, scored two touchdowns and made an interception."[/b]
Coach Jim Trimble later recalled one of Henley's majors:
"We had a defensive tackle named Willie McClung of the Cleveland Browns who wasn't dressed but was on the bench and as blind as any of us. But I heard him saying to a teammate: 'What a spot to use the old Statue of Liberty play!'
Being the genius that I am, I promptly sent it in to my quarterback, Bernie Faloney. Bernie fades back to pass, handing the ball behind him to Garney Henley, and not even the officials knew what happened until Garney scored in the end zone."
Leading up to the '62 Cup, Henley said one of his most memorable games was when Joe Zuger, playing his first game for Hamilton, threw eight touchdown passes, including four to Henley to beat Saskatchewan.
Zuger said, "The only guy I know with a national non-booing record is Garney Henley. It doesn't matter where he goes — even the opposition fans don't boo him."
Tiger-Cat fans everywhere know that Ian Sunter kicked the game-winning field goal to win the 1972 Grey Cup 13-10 over the Saskatchewan Roughriders right here in Hamilton, but it was Garney Henley who helped make it all possible.[/b]
"With less than two minutes remaining, and the ball on the Hamilton 15, (Chuck) Ealey had gone to work. Not having used Tony Gabriel throughout the game, he now hit him three times in succession, moving the ball to midfield. Chuck then threw to Garney, streaking across the field. The ball arrived slightly behind him, but he stretched back and deftly caught it in the crook of his arm as he went down. This was the point, with 27 seconds left on the clock, where Garney took the snap from centre and held the ball for Sunter to wrap things up."
