Default CFL Legend Stegall retires

Milt Stegall, arguably the most popular and most accomplished Blue Bomber in team history, has announced his retirement today from playing professional football in the CFL.

"Milt’s career has set so many new standards on and off the field. His professionalism and contribution to the Blue Bombers and the CFL will be very difficult to replace," said Lyle Bauer, President and CEO of the Winnipeg Football Club.

Widely considered the best receiver to play the Canadian game, Stegall holds numerous team and league records, simply dominating at his position for a nearly a decade and a half.

"It is challenging to describe a career such as that of Milt Stegall. He will be in our record books for years to come," Bauer said.

The CFL’s all-time touchdown leader spent 14 seasons with the Blue Bombers, playing in 199 regular season games, 10 playoff games, and two Grey Cups.

He is an eight-time division all-star, a six-time league all-star, and in 2002 Stegall was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player, when he scored a league record 23 touchdowns.

Stegall retires as the third-highest scorer in team history behind kickers Troy Westwood and Trevor Kennerd.

Adored by many Manitobans and Blue Bomber fans league-wide, Stegall was given a key to the city in 2007, and had a street named after him when Arena Road was re-named Milt Stegall Drive in 2008.

"On a personal note I can't express how appreciative we all are to Milt and his family for what they have contributed to the Blue Bombers, the CFL, and the Province of Manitoba,” Bauer said.

In a way he reminds me of Hines with all the praise he is getting and the love from the town and fans.
