Peterson, Greg

Card: Jogo 1992
Acquired: TTM 1993, CFL Blitz

After finishing college at Brigham Young in 1984, Greg Peterson would return to Canada and be signed by the Calgary Stampeders. By his second season, Greg would be a starter for Calgary, anchoring an increasingly stingy secondary. He’d be a mainstay in the Stamps secondary, playing for them from 1984 through 1992. Going largely unheralded, Peterson would receive CFL All-Star honors for his 1990 season, making 5 interceptions , for 140 yards, a touchdown, 58 tackles, and a fumble recovery. He’d follow his 1990 up with an equally impressive 1991 making 48 tackles, 4 picks and returning one 45 yards for a score.  After winning the Grey Cup in 1992, Greg would announce his retirement from the sport. Among his accomplishments is that he holds the CFL record for the longest interception return in a playoff game- 106 yards against Edmonton in 1987.

Since retirement Greg became a successful lawyer, president of the Calgary Amateur Football Association,  football coach, a commentator on the Calgary Football Radio Network, and speaks regularly on the issue concussion safety.
