Steve Alatorre

Born in Long Beach, California, Steve Alatorre played two years at Cerritos Junior College in Norwalk, California before going on to play two years for Tennessee.  Alatorre led the Volunteers to a victory over Wisconsin in the Garden Bowl, throwing for 317 yards.  Alatorre signed with the Saskatchewan Roughriders as a free agent for 1982, but was traded to the Concordes along with running back Lester Brown for future considerations before the season started.  The Montreal franchise was coming off a horrible 1981 season and the failed Vince Ferragamo experiment at quarterback.  Trying to get a fresh start, Montreal changed their name from the Alouettes to the Concordes.  Ken Johnson was tabbed as the #1 quarterback for 1982, but when Johnson went down with an injury, the Concordes signed Alatorre.  Alatorre started the season opener against Winnipeg and only lasterd the first half as the Bombers went on to win 36-0 at the Olympic Stadium, with Luc Tousignant replacingf Alatorre for the second half.  After Johnson returned from his injury, the Concordes promptly traded him to Toronto, but it was Tousignant that Monreal went with instead of Alatorre as the starter. In August, Montreal obtained former NFL quarterback Johnny Evans from Edmonton and released Alatorre. In total, Alatorre's CFL career lasted just three games and 22 pass attempts.
