On Thursday night, the Ticats will retire Angelo Mosca's No. 68, making him only the second player in franchise history to receive the honour.
The other is legendary quarterback Bernie Faloney, whose No. 10 was retired in 1999.
Mosca was a defensive tackle with Hamilton in 1958-59 and from 1963 until retiring after leading the Ticats to the '72 Grey Cup title.
Mosca appeared in nine Grey Cup games, sharing the CFL record for most appearances, winning five.
Mosca says he admires the Ticats' rugged defence, which is regarded as one of the CFL's best this season.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats dominated the Edmonton Eskimos Friday night and now they're dominating the CFL Top Performer awards.
Defensive back Mike Daly, quarterback Zach Collaros and wide receiver Terrell Sinkfield Jr. were all honoured on Tuesday after Hamilton's 49-20 win over the Eskimos on Friday.
Daly had two interceptions, seven defensive tackles, a forced fumble, and a quarterback sack in the Ticats fifth straight victory.
Collaros threw three touchdown passes and scored another on a quarterback sneak. He completed 18 of his 30 pass attempts and converted that into 325 passing yards.
Sinkfield Jr. caught two of Collaros's TD passes and totalled 118 receiving yards.
