Reed, Carteri co-winners of CFL Alumni Man of the Year Award
The CFL Alumni Association would like to congratulate George Reed and Carm Carteri on their selection as co-winners of the CFL Alumni Association Man of the Year Award.
“Both of these guys are deserving of this honour,” said Leo Ezerins and Hec Pothier on behalf of the CFLAA. “They have both been a big part of the CFL as well as their communities for many years and we cannot think of a more appropriate selection.”
Reed and Carteri made their mark not only on the playing field but off the field as well.
Reed has been active in Saskatchewan in community service for many years and is a past president of the CFL Player’s Association. He is a Member of the Order of Canada and is currently Director of Guest and Community Relations at SaskGaming. He was one of the league’s premiere running backs during his 13 year career (1963-75) with the Roughriders and one of the CFL’s best of all time. The nine-time all-star owns virtually every Saskatchewan club rushing record, including most rushing yards in a career (16,116), most carries (3,243) and most rushing touchdowns in a career (134).
Carteri has had a life-long association with Saskatchewan and was president of the Roughrider Alumni for 15 years. He is in his 25th season as colour commentator for 620 CKRM Rider Radio. Carteri was born and raised in Regina and has been a successful businessman and community contributor since his playing days in the CFL. He is a six year veteran of the CFL and played for Saskatchewan, Hamilton and Montreal. He was an Eastern all-star linebacker with Hamilton in 1981.
