Bill Frank was an outstanding offensive tackle. Frank won seven division and seven CFL (All-Canadian) All-Star honours (1966, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1973). The only year Frank missed in that period of eight years was 1969 when injuries limited him to just four games. The Outstanding Offensive Lineman award was not introduced until 1974, or Frank would likely have won a couple of those as well. After playing his college ball at Colorado, Frank joined the BC Lions in 1962. Frank lasted in BC until partway through 1964 when he ran into some prbblems with the law (drinking and driving) and breaking curfew which got him dumped from the team in the year that the Lions went on to win their first Grey Cup. Frank was traded by the Lions to the Dallas Cowboys of the NFL (Frank had been drafted by Dallas in the 18th round of the 1963 draft) for halfback Amon Bulloochs and a player to be named later. Frank played four games for Dallas in 1964. Frank returned to the CFL in 1965 and played four seasons for he Argos from 1965 to 1968. In 1969, Frank moved to Winnipeg and eight years for the Bombers from 1969 to 1976.
Frank had one rushing carry for four yards in 1973.
