Wetenhall held an instrumental role in the rebirth of the Montreal Alouettes, the franchise’s business administrations, football operations, and community involvement.
His desire to return CFL football to Montreal coupled with his drive to develop a winning culture are the reasons the team has enjoyed success both on and off the field since the team’s move from Baltimore.
At the turn of the century, the Alouettes dynasty was in full force, on the strength of eight Grey Cup appearances and three championship wins. In his 18 seasons as the club’s steward, the Alouettes have finished in first place in the East Division on ten separate occasions while never missing the playoffs.
He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2015.
