The untold story of Ken Whitlock, the first Black Argonaut

When a team has played for almost 150 seasons, it’s not surprising that many players have faded from memory, simply forgotten over time. Sadly, that’s happened to Ken Whitlock Sr., though it shouldn’t be the case as he played a significant role in the history of the team.

Most interesting story. Injuries have a way of changing things. Wish he had a full shot and things had worked out. The Argos tried!

Great story on Mr Whitlock .

Too bad he was injured so quickly as it shortened his stay .

One tends to forget the Rowing Club owned the franchise and it's great to see the Argos see this as a way to reconnect with stories and more unique themed logos centred on the rowing aspect .
