Gord Mackie Scholarship

Gordon Mackie was a fixture with the Blue Bombers from 1959-70 as their long-time physical therapist, working with three Grey Cup Championship teams in 1959, 1961 and 1962.

Mackie’s involvement on the local sports scene went far beyond the Bombers. A gifted athlete himself, Mackie begin his career in physical therapy at the West Point Military Academy and worked with the original Winnipeg Goldeyes as well as the Winnipeg Warriors and St. Paul’s Saints while also operating the Madison Boxing and Wrestling Club in St. Boniface for a decade.

The Gord Mackie Scholarship was created in his honour and will be presented each year to an eligible athletic therapy student.
