Fullback, linebacker, punter: 1959-64
Jack Delveaux came north to Winnipeg in 1959 after serving as captain of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A versatile fullback and linebacker, Delveaux joined the Blue Bombers in the middle of their ‘Glory Days’ that saw them win four Grey Cups in a five-year span from 1958-62.
In 1961, he showed his vast array of skills by stepping up to replace an injured Charlie Shepard to handle the punting chores and a year later took over the duties full time, averaging 42.1 yards per kick over five seasons. Delveaux also intercepted nine passes in his career.
