Canadian Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Tony Pajaczkowski has passed away, according to Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette.
The Montreal native played eleven seasons with the Calgary Stampeders (1955-65) and was named a West Division all-star in six consecutive seasons (1960-65). He finished his career with a two-year stint with the Montreal Alouettes (1966-67) and was named an East Division all-star in 1966.
The six-foot-three, 225-pound blocker was also named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian in 1961 and remains the only offensive lineman ever to win the award. He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1988.
Pajaczkowski passed away at his home in Port Hope, Ontario at the age of 86.
