Here we honour and celebrate those who have made outstanding contributions to the Glasgow Tigers and Strathclyde Sheriffs as well as American Football in Scotland as a whole.

Players and coaches who will live long in the memory of all involved with the Tigers will be immortalised in the team’s Hall of Fame in recognition of their time and effort given over the sport.

Alan Wilson

Known to many in Scotland as Mr Football, Wilson was a former running back with the Strathclyde Sheriffs who went on to coach the Tigers for one season.

It was his time spent with the junior and youth tiger teams that would go on to be his true legacy, helping bring many young players into the game and into the team.

He went on to become an excellent referee before passing away in 2015 following a heart attack at the age of 58.

The QB was one of the main reasons the Tigers won their division and made it all the way to the semi-finals in 2009.

Derek Taylor

Taylor played for the Tigers for ten seasons, spending time as both a linebacker and a defensive back before going on to coach the team for 10 years.

As a player, he set a team record for most tackles in a game – 20 – which stood until Jobe Traywick broke the record in 2018.

During his time as Head Coach, Taylor led the Tigers to the playoffs three times.
