Singh Back in Red and Black
Calgary Stampeders

Posted Apr 17, 2007


Today, the Calgary Stampeder Football Club is pleased to announce the free agent signing of Offensive Lineman Bobby Singh. Singh was recently released from the 2006 Grey Cup Champion B.C. Lions. Last season he played in twelve regular season games including the Scotiabank West Final and the 94th Grey Cup Championship.

“The opportunity to sign a proven veteran that has won championships in the past was too good for us to pass on,” said General Manager Jim Barker. “Bobby will bring a winning attitude and toughness that can only strengthen our football team.”

 

Singh played the last three seasons with the B.C. Lions joining the team on March 1, 2004 as a free agent. Before joining the Lions he played two seasons with the Calgary Stampeders in 2002 and 2003. In 2003 he was named the Stampeders nominee for Outstanding Canadian and Outstanding Lineman.

 

“It’s exciting to be coming back to Calgary, the place where I started my CFL career,” said Offensive Lineman Bobby Singh. “Having played against the Stampeder defense you get a good sense of how tough of an opponent they can be. Offensively the team consists of great athletes and I look forward to contributing in any way to help the team win games.”

 

At the start of the 2002 season Singh attended the San Diego Chargers training camp. This was following a championship season in 2001 with the Los Angeles Xtreme in the XFL. 

 

Before starting his professional career, Singh was drafted by Calgary in the first round (eight overall) of the 1999 CFL draft. He transferred to Portland State University in 1997, where he was named first team All-Big Sky in his junior year, named All-American/ All-Conference/ Student Athlete of the Year in his Senior Year. He started 11 games for the University of Hawaii and was named an all-WAC Conference Academic in 1996. Singh was also a Scholar-Athlete in 1995 as an offensive lineman for the University of Hawaii.
