Bruce Mattingly (born c. 1924) was an award-winning and all-star centre in the Ontario Rugby Football Union, playing 10 years with the Sarnia Imperials.[1][2]

A mainstay of the Sarnia offensive line, Mattingly was an all-star 5 times and won two ORFU championships. By far his best season was 1951, when he was an all-star, league champion, and to top it off, he won the Imperial Oil Trophy as MVP in the ORFU.[3]

Though Mattingly was offered contracts by other teams,[4] he stayed in Sarnia and played with his older brother Ray Mattingly and younger brother Don Mattingly.
