KBS Note: “Mills, 47, a Vancouver native, played his college football at the University of Hawaii before being drafted in the ninth round of the 1983 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts. The offensive tackle spent two seasons with Indy before joining the B.C. Lions in 1986 before signing with Ottawa as a free agent 1994. But he returned to Vancouver to finish his career with the Lions in 1995. He was named the CFL’s outstanding lineman in 1990 and 1991 and earned league all-star nominations in 1988, 1990, 1991.”

About his surprise when learning about his induction into the Hall of Fame, Jim Mills said:
“I haven’t played in 14 years so I was quite shocked when I got the call. As a kid you grow up dreaming about playing in the CFL or winning championships or getting trophies. The Hall of Fame is beyond my dream so it’s a great day today.” (KBS)
