Pete Gow

Pete Gow played varsity football at Central High School in Hamilton, graduating in 1941. He joined the air force and was sent to British Columbia for training. He was injured while parachuting and was not sent overseas. After the war, Gow joined the Hamilton Wildcats of the ORfU and saw action at halfback in 1946. He left the team following the 1946 season and became Central's coach. He later became a Hamilton businessman

Maybe the low point in Pete Gow's football career came when he cut a young quarterback from his Hamilton Central High School team in the early 1950s. Somehow, Pete didn't think that Russ Jackson could cut it as a football player.
