John Lordon (2012)

A high scorer on the ice, John is also remembered as one of the best football players St. Thomas has ever seen.  A versatile player, he played quarterback, halfback, linebacker and defensive back.  He was a strong passer, a fast and elusive ball-carrier, a better-than average kicker and a solid defensive player.  For his achievement on the football field, he was named team MVP in 1961.

He is also a member of the Chatham Sports Wall of Fame and the Moncton Sports Wall of Fame.
