Career Highlights

  • Played 198 games in the Canadian Football League (CFL).

Tony Pajaczkowski was widely recognized for his desire, strength and brute ability. Pajaczkowski was always in top physical condition and was a great motivator.

In Pajaczkowski's second year, he was moved over to guard by coach Jack Hennemier. Pajaczkowski was initially reluctant to make the change, but through hard work he became one of the all-time greats at that position.
