Coached by Hall of Famer Ralph Sazio, the ’67 Cats won the CFL club’s 12th Grey Cup Championship.

They finished Canada’s centennial year with a 10-4 record.

The Cats that season did not allow their opponents to score a single touchdown in their final six games including the Grey Cup which they won 24-1 at Ottawa’s Lansdowne Park over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Hamilton had advanced to the final with 11-3 and 26-0 wins over Ottawa in the Eastern Final.

The 1967 Ticat team was anchored by its defence led by perennial all stars John Barrow and Garney Henley. The defence surrendered just 195 points in the regular schedule and just four in three playoff starts.
