Hank Grenda

Hank Grenda was a Canadian quarterback who attended Washington State (1966-68).  Grenda was a pocket passer and the WSU offensive game plan was centered on a mobile quarterback, so Grenda languished on the bench for much of his career.  Also, an injury kept him out for his entire sophmore season  The highlight of Grenda's college career was in his final season when he had a tremendous game to lead the Cougars to a victory over their archrival Washington. After college, Grenda joined the BC Lions in 1969 for one season. Besides playing quarterback, Grenda was also a kicker and did some of the punting for the Lions in 1969 besides backing up at quarterback. Grenda was inducted into the Burnaby, BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2012.

Hank Grenda passed away on March 31, 2006.
