Gerry James, aka Kid Dynamite, was not only the youngest player ever to play in the CFL at 17, but he was one of the toughest athletes of his time. James led the league in scoring in 1957 and held the record for most rushing touchdowns in one season for forty-three years. He was on four Grey Cup winning teams. Along with his father, he holds the honour of being a member of the CFL Hall of Fame, the Manitoba Hall of Fame and the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame. Not only did James achieve greatness in football, but he went on to play hockey for the Toronto Maple Leafs for four seasons. James is the only person to play in a Grey Cup and a Stanley Cup final in the same season. In the 1970s, after coaching in Davos, Switzerland, he embarked on a twenty-year career as one of the most successful coaches in Canadian junior hockey history. Kid Dynamite captures a rare glimpse into the sporting and personal life of one of Canada’s most outstanding athletes.
