It was an Ironman streak that captivated football fans, players and reporters in the 1950s.

Harry Langford, who played 135 straight games for the Calgary Stampeders over nine seasons (1950-58), was one of the franchise’s earliest stars and toughest athletes. He died on Monday morning at the age of 92.

Langford, a Winnipeg native, was a five-time CFL All-Star lineman and was added to the Stampeders’ Wall of Fame in 1992. He was inducted into the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2012. One of his thrills in the CFL was getting to be teammates with his brother, Jim.

Following his enduring playing career, Langford remained in Calgary and was named coach of the Colts junior football team in 1965. He eventually moved to Nanaimo, BC
