It must be a real honour to have a trophy named you - even if that person has not passed away yet so that the trophy would be named as a memorial.

And in this case, shortly after Norm Fieldgate retired in 1967, the league created a trophy in his name starting in 1974. The Norm Fieldgate Trophy is a Canadian Football League trophy awarded to the outstanding defensive player in the West Division.
