The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have announced the addition of American offensive lineman Kendrick Sartor and American defensive back Dexter Lawson Jr. to their active roster. Two positional areas the Tiger-Cats need to grow in depth are their offensive line and defensive backfield. Sartor and Lawson Jr. come to Hamilton after successful college football careers at the NCAA FBS level.
Dexter Lawson Jr. is a 5’10”, 190-pound American defensive back from Bloomfield, Connecticut. Lawson played college football at Central Connecticut State University from 2018 through 2021 and finished his career at Appalachian State University in 2022.
While at Central Connecticut State, he played in 29 games and accumulated 74 tackles, six tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, forced one fumble, and recovered one fumble, one interception, and four pass breakups. During his senior year at Appalachian State, he had 26 tackles, one tackle for loss, one forced fumble, three interceptions, and eight pass breakups while playing 12 games for the Mountaineers.
Offensive lineman Kendrick Sartor is a 6’7″, 316-pound from Cincinnati, Ohio. Sartor played offensive tackle at Marshall University from 2017 until 2022. During his five-year career at Marshall, Sartor started 24 games. Sartor’s experience playing offensive tackle against the elite-level competition in college could allow him to provide a significant amount of value at the Tiger-Cats and continue to add more depth to their offensive line unit.
