Cory Philpot (born May 15, 1970) is a former running back for the B.C. Lions of the Canadian Football League. He played college football at The University of Mississippi. He was two-time winner of the Eddie James Memorial Trophy for top rusher (Western Division) in 1994 and 1995.[1] He played on the Lions' winning Grey Cup team in 1994.[2]

In 1995, Philpot set the CFL record for most touchdowns in a season with 22, a record that was broken by Milt Stegall in the 2003 CFL season.[3] Philpot's nickname while playing for the Lions was "Quick Six" which alluded to the number 6 jersey that he wore, and even more so his ankle breaking moves that were sure to put up a quick 6 on the scoreboard.

Today[edit]

Philpot currently serves as BCFC Game Commissioner of the Canadian Junior Football League.[4]
