Perry Tuttle was a national champion with the Clemson Tigers in 1982 – his game-winning catch in the Orange Bowl landed him on the cover of Sports Illustrated – an All-American receiver and a first-round draft pick of the Buffalo Bills by the time he ventured north to the Bombers in 1986.
He had 41 touchdowns in six seasons with the Bombers, with back-to-back 1,300-yard receiving campaigns in 1986 and 1987 while being a part of two Grey-Cup championship teams in 1988 and 1990.
His career after football has been just as prolific. Tuttle is an author, the founder of the Perry Tuttle Company – a Sports Marketing firm – and a gifted public speaker who has worked with Fortune 500 Companies. Tuttle, who is battling macular degeneration – a medical condition which can lead to blindness – now also serves as the team chaplain of the NBA’s Charlotte Hornets.
