Montreal Alouettes News Release

Montreal, Apr. 7, 2009 - Former Montreal Alouettes' defensive tackle Glen Weir, one of the most durable players in team history, will be inducted to the Canadian Football Hall of Fame this September in Winnipeg. He will be joined by Tony Anselmo, Alondra Johnson, James Mills and Rudy Phillips.

"It's a great honour to be inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, and I have to say it was completely unexpected," said Weir. "I have two Grey Cup rings but three daughters, so now everybody will have a ring!"

Weir joined the Alouettes in 1972 following a trade with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and rarely missed a game over his career. He played 203 games over 13 seasons, including 10 with the Alouettes and three with the Concordes. He is still the Als' career leader for most career games played.

A six-time East Division All-Star he was also a three-time CFL All-Star and was chosen the East Division's Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 1977. He played in five Grey Cups, including championship wins in 1974 and 1977 and was named the Most Outstanding Defensive Player of the 1977 title game.
