A Winnipeg Blue Bombers legend is back in Manitoba for a few days meeting with fans.

He’s here as part of the Princess Auto Canadian Football Hall of Fame Roadshow, where Canadian football memorabilia will be on hand along with legends like Dieter Brock.

“It’s awesome to be able to meet the fans and be able to talk to them about games we played back in those days. Also giving them a chance to autograph a jersey, football or whatever they have,” Brock said.
