Remarkable Ricky: Tributes pour in following Ray retirement

Legendary quarterback Ricky Ray announced his retirement on a conference call Wednesday, sparking an outpouring of admiration, well wishes and memories on social media.

Before we scroll through, we’ll let former Ray understudy Logan Kilgore remind you that Ray is not a big social media guy.

Commissioner Randy Ambrosie and various CFL teams sent their congratulations shortly after the announcement, with Hamilton’s sticking to the (friendly) rivalry script.

Toronto mayor John Tory went into the archives for some 2017 Grey Cup parade goodness.

One of the few players in CFL history with a resume to rival that of Ray, Damon Allen chimed in.

Then, of course, there were his teammates and competitors: Those he shared the field with.

 

 

Simply put, Ricky Ray was one of the best to ever do it on a Canadian football field.
