Nicknamed the China Clipper, Kwong is one of the outstanding fullbacks in the history of the CFL. He started his career in 1948 with Calgary and played three seasons with them before moving to Edmonton where he played ten seasons. Along with Jackie Parker, Johnny Bright and Rollie Miles, Kwong formed the nucleus of the strong Edmonton offense that won three consecutive Grey Cups from 1954 to 1956. Kwong had four 1000 yard seasons rushing (1955 through 58), piling up over 9000 career yards rushing and there were no individual statistics kept his first two years, so his total is likely over 10 000 yards. Kwong was a four time Western All-Star (there was no All-Canadian team in those years), winning the honours in 1951, 53, 55 and 56. Kwong also won the Outstanding Canadian award twice in 1955 and 1956 and was elected to the CFL Hall of Fame in 1969.
After Kwong's playing days were over, he went on to similar success in public life. He is a member of the order of Canada, a past General Manager and President of the Calgary Stampeders,, and in 2005 was named the Lt. Govenor of Alberta. Normei Kwong is not just an outstanding football player, he is an outstanding Canadian.
No games played stats were kept during these years and there are no individual statistics available at tall prior to 1950 in the West.
Stats for the longest pass reception were not kept until 1954.
