Terry Vaughn, who spent six seasons in Green and Gold between 1999 and 2004, was announced Thursday as the 2023 Wall of Honour inductee, becoming the 42nd player to earn the Club’s highest honour.
Vaughn’s name will take its rightful place at Commonwealth Stadium on Sunday, August 27 when the Edmonton Elks take on the Ottawa Redblacks. His induction coincides with the 20th anniversary of Edmonton’s 2003 Grey Cup victory over the Montreal Alouettes in Regina.
“I love the Green and Gold. I enjoyed my time there, enjoyed my teammates, the fans and the people that I got a chance to work with as well. A great organization and a great community,” said Vaughn.
Among the greatest receivers in CFL history, Vaughn was a 1,000-yard receiver in all six of his seasons with the Double E. He holds or shares four franchise receiving records: most 1,000-yard receiving seasons (6), most consecutive 1,000-yard seasons (6), most receptions in a season (106), and most receiving yards in a game (275).
The Arizona product was a five-time CFL West All-Star during his stay in Edmonton, including during Edmonton’s run to the 2003 Grey Cup. Five years after completing his CFL career in 2006, Vaughn was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
