Product of Cal State-Fullerton, Allen Pitts joined the Calgary Stampeders in 1990. He spent his entire career with the Stampeders, with whom he appeared in five Grey Cup games, winning two. Tall and powerful, Pitts was a deep threat who rarely dropped a pass.

       Through 176 regular season games, Pitts averaged 15.4 yards per reception. On September 10, 1999 Pitts caught a 13 yard pass that made him the CFL’s all-time receiving leader at that time. When he retired after the 2000 season, Pitts had caught 966 passes for 14,891 yards and 117 touchdowns.

       Four times during his career, Pitts was voted the team’s outstanding player by Stampeder fans and twice his teammates chose him as the President’s Ring recipient for his inspirational and motivational skills. He was selected All-Western six times, a North Division All-Star once and All-Canadian six times. He was the Western Division nominee for most Outstanding Player in 1999.

       In 2004, Pitts had his jersey number 18 retired by Calgary.
