Bill Ceretti (March 10, 1912 – May 5, 1974), was an offensive and defensive lineman who played thirteen seasons for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers franchise. He was a three-time Grey Cup champion, having won in 1935, 1939, and 1941. In 1975, sportswriter Vince Leah called Ceretti "one of the finest Canadian-born linemen in the history of the game."
