Thanks for that Steve!
Glad to hear about the 40th reunion for the 1967 TiCats!
Something to look very much forward to....

A very good article indeed.

You gotta love the Henley helmet. :smiley:

Oski Wee Wee,

Garney Henley..Is the reason I have been
a TICAT FAN for fifty years...He was a
thrill to watch!!!!!!!!!

At age 36, after 13 years in the CFL Garney Henley
converted from defensive back to wide receiver [flanker]
[Mind you he still played a lot of defense.]

He was named the CFL’s Most Valuable Player that year, 1972.

So much for age being such a detriment to an elite athlete.

In reality the critical factor determining
an elite athlete's performance is injuries.

For example, Roger Clemens and Randy Johnson.

Nice find Steve......super article
