Dave Cutler (born October 17, 1945) is a former all-star place kicker with the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League. Cutler is considered by many to be one of the best field goal kickers in CFL history.[1]


A graduate of Simon Fraser University, and playing 16 years with the Eskimos, Cutler is the team's all time point scorer, with 2237. He was an all star 4 times and was a member of 6 Grey Cup winning teams, including being an essential part of their great 5 win (1978 to 1982) dynasty. One of his most memorable plays occurred with only seconds remaining in the 69th Grey Cup game of 1981 against Ottawa, where his field goal was not only game winning, but dynasty extending. His kick capped one of the most dramatic comebacks in Grey Cup history, as the Eskimos were down by 19 points at half-time.

Awards and honors

Cutler is a member of the Simon Fraser University Sports Hall of Fame, the Edmonton Eskimos Wall of Honour, and in 1998 was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame.
