Canadian Football League Hall of Famer joins old team as ambassador

- The Hamilton Tiger-Cats are excited to announce that former Ticats great and CFL Hall Of Famer Angelo Mosca has joined the team as a community ambassador.
"Having one the Ticats most popular icons officially onboard with our team is very exciting for all of us," said president Scott Mitchell. "Angelo's passion for the Ticats was always evident on the field and even after his playing days were over he stilled embraced the team and the community. His dedication never wavered and will of course continue in his new role with our team."
Mosca who was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1987, had a storied CFL career playing 15 seasons, 12 of which (1958-59, 1964-72) were with the Ticats. He played in an astonishing nine Grey Cup games, emerging victorious five times. He was selected as a CFL All-Star in 1963 and 1970 and was an Eastern All-Star defensive tackle five times.
"The year 2007 is probably one of the most positive I've seen in over 35 years with regards to the Ticats," said Mosca. "From Bob Young, to the new president Scott Mitchell to general manager Marcel Desjardins all the way to head coach Charlie Taaffe, the team looks like it is set up for long-term success. I am really looking forward to doing my part with the team and hope that I can be a positive role model in the Hamilton community."
