Lunn was discovered by Saskatchewan Roughriders coach Frank Filchock in 1954 playing for the Hamilton Panthers of the ORFU Intermediate league.[1] He paid immediate dividends for his new team, winning the 1955 Dr. Beattie Martin Trophy for best Canadian rookie in the west on the strength of his 175 rushing yards and his league leading punt and kick off returns.[2] His best season was 1957, with 326 rushing yards, and he intercepted 12 passes during his career. He also represented the West in the 1958 Shrine Game.
