Dickie Harris, #18


The legendary defensive back played 134 games in 10 seasons in Montreal, starting in 1972 with the Alouettes.

A splendid punt returner, he remains the club’s all-time interception leader with 38 and holds the record for the longest interception return at 118 yards. Harris was a seven-time division All-Star from 1973 to 1979 and All-Canadian defensive back from 1974 to 1980. He won two Grey Cups (1974 and 1977).

He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
