Hal Patterson, #75


Without a doubt the most outstanding player to have worn the Alouettes uniform, “Prince Hal” Patterson dominated his opponents in every play. An incredible receiver, impressive cornerback and electrifying kick returner, Patterson is famous for being one of the best players to have set foot on a Canadian football field. Also nicknamed “the Rocket” of football in reference to Maurice Richard, Patterson was named eight times to the Eastern All-Star offensive line and five times to the defensive line.

He was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
