Herm Harrison

Class of 1993

erm (Ham Hands) Harrison started out as a linebacker, but when quarterback Eagle Day noticed he had good hands, he had him moved to tight end.

In 1969 and 1970, Harrison led the Western Conference in pass receptions, with 68 and 70 respectively, and tied for the lead in 1971, also with 70 catches. His 1,306 yards in receptions was the Canadian Football League’s highest in 1968.

Harrison had a career day on September 2, 1970, in a game versus the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, when he pulled in four touchdown passes, just one short of the league record.

In 1968, Herm Harrison was the Calgary Stampeders nominee for the Most Outstanding Player award.
