Art West

Art West played for Toronto Balmy Beach of the ORFU in 1951.  This is not the Art West who was a halfback for the Toronto Argonauts in the late 1930s.  In one of those "truth is stranger than fiction" situations, the coach of the Balmy Beach team in 1951 was the "other' Art West.  The player Art West was released at some point during the season, and when coach Art West was fired and seven players quit in support of him, the player Art West was one of those sought to replace them.  Confused?  See the picture below for proof there were two Art Wests on the same team. Note the caption refers to two photos, of which only the bottom one is show.
