The Calgary Stampeders have formally announced the addition of National fullback Lucas Robertson to their roster. The team confirmed the signing on Thursday, reinforcing their offensive lineup as they prepare for the upcoming CFL season.
Lucas Robertson, who was picked in the eighth round of the previous year’s CFL Draft by the Stampeders, comes off an impressive collegiate career with the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds. In 2023, Robertson was distinguished with Canada West and U Sports all-star accolades for his significant contributions on the field.
Having participated in the Stampeders’ training camp in 2023, Robertson played in one preseason game before he rejoined UBC for the regular collegiate season. His versatility was on display as he took on a tight end role, where his offensive play was integral in the Thunderbirds securing a 6-2 regular-season record. Notably, under his support, the team led their conference with an average of 33.9 points per game.
Robertson’s performance was also critical in the postseason, where he had 11 receptions totaling 92 yards distributed over four games. His efforts contributed to UBC clinching the Hardy Cup as Canada West champions and advancing to the Vanier Cup, where they vied for the national title.
Over his college career spanning 28 games, Robertson made 28 catches for 223 yards, scored one touchdown, and demonstrated his defensive capabilities with eight tackles.
The signing of Lucas Robertson is part of the Stampeders’ strategy to enhance their squad with promising talent from the college ranks. His prior experience with the team and his proven track record in university play suggest that he could become a valuable asset in their quest for CFL success.
Fans and analysts will be watching closely to see how Robertson’s transition to the professional stage unfolds as the Stampeders continue their efforts to build a competitive team in the fiercely contested Canadian Football League.
