Stu Foord - Football Career - Professional


After the 2007 season, Foord received another invitation to the Roughriders' training camp. After a much improved performance, on and off the field, he was placed on the team's waived / injured list, but was signed to the team's 42 man roster after an injury to Chris Szarka. He made his debut with the Roughriders during Week 2 of the 2008 CFL season, against the BC Lions. Foord was named the CFL's Canadian Player of the Week on September 24, 2008 for his performance against the BC Lions. He scored a touchdown on his first ever rushing attempt in the CFL, and also had a receiving touchdown later in the game. Of his rushing touchdown, Foord said "I knew that I would be so jacked up that if anything was there, I was going to take it. I did that and now I can say my first touch was a touchdown." Foord finished the 2008 season with three touchdowns (two rushing and one receiving).

During the 2009 CFL season, Foord dressed for every Roughrider game, including the West Final and the Grey Cup. He was one of the team's backup running backs, and also saw time on special teams, including returning kickoffs. Foord scored a single rushing touchdown during the 2009 season. In the offseason, Foord signed a new contract with the Roughriders.

On February 16, 2012, Foord signed with the BC Lions as a free agent.

Famous quotes containing the word professional:

    The belief that there are final and immutable answers, and that the professional expert has them, is one that mothers and professionals tend to reinforce in each other. They both have a need to believe it. They both seem to agree, too, that if the professional’s prescription doesn’t work it is probably because of the mother’s inadequacy.
    Elaine Heffner (20th century)

    Three words that still have meaning, that I think we can apply to all professional writing, are discovery, originality, invention. The professional writer discovers some aspect of the world and invents out of the speech of his time some particularly apt and original way of putting it down on paper.
    John Dos Passos (1896–1970)

    Virtue and vice suppose the freedom to choose between good and evil; but what can be the morals of a woman who is not even in possession of herself, who has nothing of her own, and who all her life has been trained to extricate herself from the arbitrary by ruse, from constraint by using her charms?... As long as she is subject to man’s yoke or to prejudice, as long as she receives no professional education, as long as she is deprived of her civil rights, there can be no moral law for her!
    Flora Tristan (1803–1844)
