STATEMENT ON THE RETIREMENT OF RICKY RAY

TORONTO (May 8, 2019) – Canadian Football League Commissioner, Randy Ambrosie released a statement on the retirement of Ricky Ray:

“Congratulations to Ricky Ray on a stellar 16-year CFL career. It will be remembered for its stats and historic accomplishments. He will be remembered for the class and poise he always demonstrated. Ricky’s incredible pass completion rate of 68.2 per cent is the best in league history. He is a four-time Grey Cup champion, a multiple CFL all-star, someone who has thrown for 60,736 passing yards and 324 touchdowns. The way he carried himself while compiling these numbers is just as impressive. Ricky has always led by example, quietly but completely. He is someone who always put his teammates first. Calm under pressure, modest in victory, and accountable in defeat, he has been the consummate professional, on and off the field. The CFL has been graced by his play and strengthened by his presence. We wish Ricky every success in his future endeavours and thank his family for sharing him with our league and our fans.”
