Luc Tousignant

A native of Trois Rivieres, Luc Tousignant was one of the last Canadian quarterbacks to get some signifiant playing time in the CFL.  Tousignant had an outstanding college career at Fairmont State and the Montreal Concordes badly wanted to secure the rights to a Quebec born pivot.  To get his rights, the Concordes gave Ottawa their territorial pick in the 1983 CFL College Draft and then outbid the Buffalo Bills who had drafted Tousignalt in the eighth round for his services.  After the Vince Ferragamo fiasco in 1981, Montreal was expecting Ken Johnson to be their starter in 1982 with Tousignant as the understudy.  When Johnson didn't show up, Tousignant was suddenly vaulted into the starting positin in his rookie season.  It was not an outstanding season, but it did have its high points.  Montreal was still a very bad team and went 2-14 on the sason.  Tousignant lost the starting job to import Johnny Evans later in August, but the only two wins Montreal got were with Tousignant as the starter.  Tousignant's best individual game of the year came in a lost to Hamilton where he completed 24 of 36 passes for 308 yards and a touchdown.  Tousignant went to training camp with Montreal in 1983, but was released and so only played the one season.  In 2008, Tousignalt was named to the Fairmont State Athletic Hall of Fame.
