Born in London, Ontario in 1971, Tim Tindale must have grown up knowing about the Mustangs. Tindale came to Western in 1990, the year after the Mustangs spectacular Vanier Cup win. The fullback helped Western win the Yates Cup in 1990 but they lost to St. Mary’s in the Atlantic Bowl. Though the Mustangs would lose the Yates Cup each of his remaining three years, Tindale’s skills were certainly recognized as he was voted the most outstanding player in the Ontario Universities Athletic Association, the most outstanding football player in Canada and was the winner of the Hec Crighton Trophy for most outstanding Canadian university football player in both the 1991 and 1993 seasons.
Upon graduating with a kinesiology degree, Tindale moved on to the NFL where he played as a running back with the Buffalo Bills. Over his four seasons with the Buffalo Bills, Tindale eventually became a very successful starting blocking back, but his career was unfortunately cut short due to injuries.
Since leaving the NFL Tindale has relocated to southwestern Ontario where he runs his own construction company, Tindale Custom Build, and lives with his family.
