TORONTO – Former University of Hawai’i receiver Chad Owens was among the seven new inductees of the Canadian Football League Hall of Fame Class of 2024.
Owens is the third former Rainbow Warrior in the CFL Hall of Fame joining offensive lineman Jim Mills (2009) and linebacker Solomon Elimimian (2023).
The class will be officially enshrined on Friday, Sept. 13.

Owens spent nine seasons in the CFL with Montreal, Toronto, Hamilton and Saskatchewan. In his historic 2012 season, he held the distinction of being the third player in CFL history to lead the league in both receiving yards and combined yards. Owens set the CFL record for combined yards in a single season en route to winning the Most Outstanding Player Award and helping the Toronto Argonauts capture the 100th Grey Cup.
In addition, he was named Divisional All-Star five times, CFL All-Star four times, and was the league’s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player in 2010 and 2011. He still ranks No. 8 in league history in kick return yards (10,309) and No. 10 in combined yards (16,698). Owens was also the first CFL player to tally at least 3,000 combined yards in three consecutive seasons.
