Season 9 Episode 18- Chris Armstrong- 1994-95 Baltimore Stallions Wide Receiver, 1994 All-Star, All CFL, 1995 Grey Cup Champion!

NOW AVAILABLE ON FOWL PLAYERS RADIO- www.fowlplayersradio.com- https://www.buzzsprout.com/175423/11103813Please welcome Chris Armstrong!! Chris Armstrong was a Wide Receiver- Slotback who had a career that lasted nearly a decade in the Canadian Football League and spent two seasons playing in Baltimore with the Baltimore CFL Colts/Football Club/CFLs/Stallions.You can also follow us on YouTube! Please hit the SUBSCRIBE button and the LIKE button and tell all of your friends! You can also find the audio version of Fowl Players Radio on most Podcast Platforms- please follow us and give us a fair, honest review!In 1984 Robert Irsay tore the heart out of the City of Baltimore by taking our beloved Colts away in the middle of the night and relocating them to Indianapolis. In 1985 Baltimore briefly enjoyed a season of USFL Football with the Baltimore Stars franchise that relocated there from Philadelphia. In 1992 Baltimore hosted a pre season game between the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints to let the NFL know that they were still a football town. Then, in 1994, professional football returned to Baltimore, by way of the Canadian football league. The CFL was expanding and granting franchises in the United States, and a franchise was awarded to Baltimore. Though this franchise was short lived, (two seasons) it made two trips to the Grey Cup, winning the last one in 1995 and paving the way for the NFL to return. For those who followed the Stallions (the final name after several name changes) these two years were ones that will never be forgotten. Chris Armstrong, who was a star receiver on the Stallions (honored as an All-Star and All CFL player in 1994 and was a member of the Grey Cup Championship Team in 1995) joins us to reminisce about his teammates, his coaches, the journey to the Grey Cup, and much more! Chris Armstrong is currently coaching Varsity Football at Loch Raven High School in Baltimore County, Maryland. The Fowl Players of Perryville will be returning to the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad on September 10, October 8, and October 29. for more information, please see www.wmsr.com or www.fowlplayersofperryville.com.#chrisarmstrong #baltimorestallions #baltimorecflcolts #baltimorecfl #1995GreyCupChamps #baltimorefootballclub #cfl #canadianfootballleague #michaelspedden #fowlplayersradio #fowlplayersofperryvillewww.fowlplayersradio.comwww.thefowlplayersofperryville.com#michaelspedden#fowlplayersradio#fowlplayersofperryville@fowl_radio@SpeddenMichaelFor YouTube Channelhttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCy2kTPvrJRqwuYQDwDI64Sw
