Al Maki

For over 25 years, Allan (Al) Maki has covered the Canadian Football League in loving detail, with a keen eye for news punctuated with his wonderful turn of phrase.

First as a Calgary Stampeders beat writer and columnist with the Calgary Herald, then later as a columnist with the Globe and Mail.

Maki, a native of Thunder Bay, Ontario, rose through the ranks of football writers after graduating from Ryerson School of Journalism in 1977 to become president of the Football Reporters of Canada. He has chronicled every Grey Cup since 1980.
