STATEMENT | From the Moss family

EDMONTON – Please see the following statement from Joey Moss' nephew Adam Walker, regarding the conclusion of Joey's time with the Edmonton Elks Football Club.

The Edmonton Elks always included Joey within the organization until the day he was no longer able to work. The Elks continue to support Joey and his legacy. The 50/50 in 2020 raised nearly half a million dollars for the Joey Moss Memorial Fund. This will be an annual event. The Elks have also hired two individuals from the Winnifred Steward Employment Program. They have been an outstanding organization and have always treated Joey with the highest respect. 

Further to the family's statement above, the Elks categorically deny that any member of the club's management requested that Joey no longer be part of the organization.

The Green and Gold cherished Joey's presence around the team, and respect the important role he played with the organization for decades.
