Are there any changes we should make?
Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!Suggest a Change

Date of Birth: 1923
Harry Hood helped Kelvin win the 1943 Football Provincial Championship. After serving in the Second World War, he played with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers for two years, leading them to two Grey Cup Finals (in 1946 and 1947). In 1948, he won the Grey Cup with the Calgary Stampeders, the only team to go undefeated in C.F.L history. Hood would return to the Grey Cup in 1949 and 1950. At the age of 29, he retired from professional football. Two years later, he tragically died from cancer. Since his death, the Winnipeg High School Football League has annually awarded the Harry Hood Memorial Trophy to players who best exemplify "a standard in playing ability, school citizenship, fair play and scholastic standing."
