TORONTO ARGONAUTS MOURN THE PASSING OF ARNIE STOCKS

TORONTO - One of the last surviving members of the iconic “Mud Bowl” passed away in Toronto over the weekend.

Arnie Stocks, 91, was a defensive back for the Argos in their 13-0 win over Winnipeg on November 25, 1950 at Varsity Stadium in the 38th Grey Cup game. He had one interception in that legendary contest. Stocks also played running back in his tenure with the Argos.

Stocks, a Toronto native and product of the Toronto Junior Argonauts, played two seasons for the Double Blue, as well as one season with the Calgary Stampeders.

The Toronto Argonauts Football Club would like to express condolences to his family and friends.
