Chuck Ealey has always been a winner - ON and OFF the field.
The quarterback-turned-successful financial industry leader never lost a football game in high school or at the University of Toledo, where he graduated with a business economics degree. His teams won 53 straight games, including 35 at Toledo, which remains a NCAA record.  

 

Ealey brought his winnings ways to the CFL, leading the Hamilton Tiger Cats to an 11-3 record and a Grey Cup title in his first year.  

 

He paved the way for several African-American quarterbacks, who were rejected in their home country, to enjoy immense success north of the border.
