Harry Batstone

Harry Batstone was an outstanding halfback and kicker for the Toronto Argonauts and Queen's university, though he played for the two teams in reverse sequence of what is normal today.  Batstone played for the Argos from 1919 to 1921 which included the first win in an East-West Grey Cup (beating Edmonton 23-0) when he was team captain.  Then from 1922 to 1928, Batstone played for Queen's and won Grey Cups again in 1922 and 1924 and five college titles in 1922, 1923, 1924, 1925 and 1927.  Queen's by the way was the last college team to win a Grey Cup.  Batstone moved into coaching after retiring and coached Queen's from 1929 to 1931, winning the college title in his first two seasons.

The only statistics available from this era for Batstone are from the Toronto Argos media guide which list him as having played 17 regular season games and 4 playoff games.

Batstone was elected to the Canadian Football Hall-of-Fame in 1963.
