Keith English was a Grey Cup champion and award winning Canadian Football League player. He was primarily an offensive end but also played on defence.

A graduate of both Loyola High School and Loyola College, English joined his hometown Montreal Alouettes in 1948. Playing 12 regular season games he scored 2 touchdowns and a safety, good enough to win the Gruen Trophy for best rookie in the eastern Big Four (at a time when only Canadians could win the award.) In 1949 he was an integral part of the Larks first Grey Cup championship. He retired after only 4 seasons with Montreal, playing 39 games.[1]

He later became an avid curler and golfer, and was a Vice-President with McFarlane Son and Hodgson Ltd. In 1972 he was elected into the Loyola College Sports Hall of Fame (now Concordia University). He died on January 21, 1989.
