McLoughlin, Mark

Card: Jogo 1992
Acquired: TTM 1993, CFL Blitz

Another England born kicker in the CFL, Mark McLoughlin left North Dakota as the Coyotes leading kicker in many categories before heading  over to Canada.  In Calgary, McLoughlin would redefine the kicker category and holds the record for the most games played for the franchise at 244 from 1988- 2003. (He’d play one final season for the BC Lions in an emergency stint before retiring in 2005.) Mark is second all time in scoring with 2848 points and in career field goals with 673.  Mark would hit 80 extra points in 1994, a CFL record and in 1996 tie the league record for most field goals in a game (with Dave Ridgway) at 8. A 6 time All-Star McLoughlin has won the Grey Cup 3 times and made the game winning kick for the championship against the Tiger Cats in 1998.  He’d score over 200 points 7 times in his career and received 3 All Star selections for his achievements.

After his playing days ended McLoughlin was inducted into the Stampeders Wall of Honor and had his number retired.  A voracious community volunteer, Mark currently resides in Alberta, Canada and has worked for Olds College and in 2007 was named into the University of South Dakota’s Sports Hall of Fame.
