Bill Robinson ~ Football

As quarterback of the Saint Mary’s Huskies, Robinson led his team to the 1973 Vanier Cup, the first in the school’s history. The Toronto native played for SMU for four seasons (1970-1973), and was named league MVP in ’71, ’72, and ’73. In all four seasons, Robinson was named a league all-star and led the conference in every major passing category. After winning his second Vanier Cup in 1974 with Western, Robinson was a third-round draft pick of the Ottawa Rough Riders and was a member of the 1976 Grey Cup-champion team.
