Gorrell will fill Hall of Fame with heart, laughter
Miles Gorrell says the Hall of Fame had better have plenty of clay for a bust of his big head. Truth is they should put in a big heart.
Gorrell was traded to Montreal in 1982 when the glory years under Marv Levy were forgotten and the Alouettes changed their name to the Concordes.
Wins and fans were few and far between, but the Ironman of CFL linemen struck up a friendship with defensive lineman Doug Scott, a friendship that endures to this day.
Gorrell worked with CJAD 800 for 2 seasons as analyst for the Montreal Machine of the WLAF (owned by the NFL and known as the NFL Europe when our team and US clubs were folded).
Listen to Miles reflect on the Canadian game, the tough but fun times in Montreal and his pride in being selected for induction into the 2013 Canadian Football Hall of Fame class.
