Fontaine, Tacoma

Stampede Inaugural Magazine Austin Wranglers
Acquired: Gift 2004

My cousin got me a game program full of autographs back in 2004, that I found recently when digging through some boxes. I had completely forgotten about this group of autographs, as I had been out of touch with the hobby for a few years when I was given this magazine as a gift.

Tacoma Fontaine quickly established himself in the Wranglers starting lineup in 2004 after a successful career with the Tulsa Talons as a receiver, returner and defensive back. With his second start under his belt, Fontaine won AFL player of the week honors after recording 7 catches for 205 yards and 3 touchdowns against the Detroit Fury. Fontaine finished the 2004 season with 72 receptions for 1076 yards and 21 touchdowns. In 2005 Tacoma saw time as both a receiver and kick returner recording over 1500 yards from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns. He’d retire after the season.
