It is that time of year again to pay homage to some of the touch football greats that have played in Manitoba. We have another stellar group of players and contributors as part of the 2021 Hall of Fame class!

Our next inductee into the 2021 HOF class is Don Jonas whose touch football career spanned the NFL, CFL, College, and...PIT Football.

Congratulations to Don Jonas who was inducted into the 2021 Manitoba Touch Football Hall of Fame in the Builders category.
"To be considered for selection in the Contributor category, an individual must have contributed to the game significantly in areas outside of the competitive arena (i.e. administrator, league architect, innovator, instructor, coach etc.). Contributors have changed the game for the better and lay the groundwork for the future success of touch football in Manitoba.

A few highlights of Don Jonas' career:

Credit with changing the game of touch football in Manitoba from 9-man to 7-man and eliminating blocking (modernizing the game!)
Drafted into the NFL by the Philadelphia Eagles
CFL Most Outstanding Player (1971) Winnipeg Blue Bonbers
Two Continental Football League Championships
College Football Hall of Fame as coach of University of Central Florida

To view Don's complete HOF profile check out our Hall of Fame page here:

The PIT Crew would like to congratulate Don on his well deserved selection into the Manitoba Touch Football Hall of Fame!
