Once that is done, we intend to look at how each team honor their past players, coaches and executives. As such, it is news to us that the Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced three new members into their franchise Hall of Fame.
Fred Reid, Running Back (2007-11). Reid played his college ball at Mississippi State, and he was a three-time East Division All-Star and one-time CFL All-Star. With the Blue Bombers, Reid rushed for 4,505 Yards, compiled another 810 in the air, and had 23 Touchdowns for the team.
