Dave Dickenson started his CFL career with the Calgary Stampeders. During his first five years with Calgary, Dickenson participated in two Grey Cups, winning his first in 1998.

To finish his career, Dickenson returned to Calgary.

What does it mean to you to be a member of the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum?

"The Hall of Fame is the ultimate way to finish my career as a quarterback. It reinforces that I played the game well, that I outcompeted my opponents, and I did so in a way that I earned respect from the football community. It is the highest honour an individual can achieve in this team game, and therefore, I am very humbled to part of such an exclusive club."--Dave Dickenson

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2015 as a player.
