Frank Tindall (1909- 5 October 1993) was a native of Solvay, New York and was one of the few great Canadian University coaches of the twentieth century. A former football and basketball star at Syracuse University, he was a football All-Eastern guard, All-America honourable and team MVP at Syracuse in 1932. Frank was recruited by the Toronto Argonaughts and named a Canadian Football League (CFL) 1933 All-Star in his rookie season and he was a member of their 1934 Grey Cup Championship team. Later, the Argos selected him toe the All-Time All-Star Squad (1921-1941) and he was inducted into the CFL Hall of Fame in 1985. Frank came to Queen's in 1939 to coach football, but WWII interrupted interuniversity sports. Frank returned to Queen's in 1948 to coach both football and basketball and established what became known as the 'Tindall Era'. As a signal of his status in the Canadian Interuniversity Athletic Union, the football coach-of-the-year trophy has borne his name since 1969, six years before he retired in 1975.
