STATEMENT ON THE RETIREMENT OF HENRY BURRIS

Tuesday, January 24, 2017 —

"I want to congratulate Henry Burris on a prolific 18-season CFL career with the Calgary Stampeders, the Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and the Ottawa REDBLACKS. Henry is a three-time Grey Cup champion and was a force on the field, where he made an unforgettable impact on our game. He has also left an indelible impression in the hearts of fans across the country, especially those in the communities he called home. He embodies the values of leadership and service on the field and off, which has made him a role model to us all. We are proud to have had a player of his calibre and a man of his character as a star in our league.”

-- CFL Commissioner Jeffrey L. Orridge
