Former Tribe football star to be inducted into Canada Sports Hall of Fame

Michael "Pinball" Clemons, who starred as a running back for William and Mary in the mid-1980s and then for the Toronto Argonauts, will be inducted Nov. 1 to Canada's Sports Hall of Fame.

He helped the Argonauts win three Grey Cups (1991, 1996, 1997) as a player en route to becoming pro football's all-time record holder for all-purpose yards (25,483). He coached Toronto to the Grey Cup in 2004 and is the second-winningest coach in Argos history.
