Blue Bombers and Fans


« on: March 23, 2020, 04:28:28 AM »

During the COVID-19 pendemic, here is a thread to highlight some of the great Bomber players you have seen playing and some of your memborable moments of a game or players' performance.

Kicking it off with a brief bio on one of my favourite players in the history of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers:

FARRELL FUNSTON

After playing college football at Pacific University and being drafted by the National Football League without playing a down, Farrel Funston became a wide receiver for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 1959 to 1966.  For all those years, Ken Ploen was his quarterback. Together, they were major factors in Winnipeg's four Grey Cup appearances (1959, 1961, 1962, 1965), including three victories: 1959, 1961, 1962, and one loss: 1965. His highest totals as a receiver were the two years he was voted as a western conference all-star: 1961 (47 catches for 892 yards, 19.0 yards per catch, 8 touchdowns) and 1963 (60 catches for 835 yards, 13.9 yards per catch, 9 touchdowns).
