Edmonton Elks Acquire Defensive Lineman Keyshon Camp for Upcoming Season

3 Key Points

  • Edmonton Elks signed American defensive lineman Keyshon Camp with a history in the USFL and college football.
  • Camp contributed to Birmingham Stallions’ title win with notable performance in USFL Championship game.
  • Camp’s collegiate record at University of Pittsburgh includes 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks over 35 games.

Edmonton Elks Welcome New American Talent

The Edmonton Elks grow stronger with their latest addition to the defensive line, as they officially welcome Keyshon Camp to their roster. The signing comes as the team looks to bolster its defense for the forthcoming CFL season.

Camp’s Athletic Journey

Spanning two seasons, Camp’s experience in the USFL has prepared him well for the competitive nature of the CFL. In the last season, his performance was particularly notable during the four regular season games with the Philadelphia Stars. Camp, however, found greater success after re-joining the Birmingham Stallions—the team he originally played for in 2022—where his contributions were pivotal in their championship victory.

Transition from USFL to CFL

After brief participation in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ NFL rookie minicamp in 2022, Camp has made a definitive mark in the USFL. His recent stats underpin his ability as a defensive force: three tackles and two sacks in the USFL Championship game are particularly telling of his impact on the field.

Collegiate Career and Recognition

Prior to his professional pursuits, Keyshon Camp’s football career at the University of Pittsburgh showcases his defensive prowess through consistent performance—achieving 59 tackles, 4.5 sacks, and contributing to many turnovers with four pass deflections and two forced fumbles. Notably, his skills earned him the title of Most Valuable Lineman in the 2022 Tropical Bowl All-Star game.

The Edmonton Elks have clearly made a calculated move with the addition of Keyshon Camp. His track record speaks for itself as he joins the team ready for what is hoped to be a promising season.
