Inducted: 2016

Guard, defensive line: 1986-92

A first-round draft pick of the Blue Bombers in 1985 (9th overall), Molle arrived in Winnipeg having already won a silver medal in wrestling in the XXIII Olympics in Los Angeles in 1984.

He used his scrappy toughness to be an important cog on the Bombers offensive line and was a member of Grey Cup championship teams in 1988 and 1990.

Molle’s accomplishments in sports have seen him inducted into the Simon Fraser University Hall of Fame (1990), the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Hall of Fame (1991), the Canadian Wrestling Hall of Fame (1992), the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame (1993) and the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame (1995).
