John Hammond

Johnny Hammond was a Winnpeg boy who first played senior ball as it was called then with a Regina All Services All-Star team in 1943.  After the war, Hammond attended Washington University before returning home to play for the Blue Bombers for one season in 1946 as a guard.  Hammond and the Bombers went to the Grey Cup that year, losing to a powerful Argo team led by the gold-dust twins of Joe Krol and Royal Copeland.  Hammond's play, however, atttracted attention, and he went East in 1947 to play for the Montreal Alouettes.  While playing with the Alouettes, Hammond also attended McGill University.  Hammond remained in Montreal for five seasons (1947-51), and won a Grey Cup with them in 1949. John Hammond has passed away.*
