Herb Trawick is one of the three first African American players signed by the Alouettes. His moment of glory comes during the Grey Cup final in Toronto, when he forces a fumble from the Calgary Stampeders quarterback, Keith Spaith.
THE END OF A 41-YEAR FOOTBALL TRADITION
On June 1987, the eve of their first game of the season, the Alouettes organize a press conference announcing that they will be ceasing their activities. Many explanations are given, namely the fans' disenchantment for the team and the decrease in tickets sales. The players are dumbfounded.
Over 250,000 fans celebrate this glorious victory alongside our Alouettes during the parade in Montreal.
On September 21, the team achieves its biggest comeback in history against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers by erasing a 24-point deficit and taking down their opponents 38-37!
On November 10, 2019, the Alouettes play their first playoff game in 5 years as they go head to head with the Edmonton Eskimos for the Eastern Semi-Final in front of over 20,000 fans at Percival Molson Stadium.
