Alex Denman was an award winning, Grey Cup champion and all-star Canadian football player, playing from 1923 to 1933 with the Hamilton Tigers.[1]

A graduate of Woodstock College[2] Denman went on to have an all-star 11 year football career with the Tigers. Select 4 times as an all-star and the winner of 3 Grey Cups, his best season was 1932 when, in addition to his all-star, he won the Jeff Russel Memorial Trophy as outstanding player in the east.[3] Curiously, Denman was part of an inquiry by the Director of Dental Services for Ontario, and he reported having lost 3 teeth playing football.[4]
