Career Highlights

  • Played 199 games during his 13-year career.

Bobby Jurasin attended Northern Michigan University and joined the Saskatchewan Roughriders as a free agent in 1986 and despite playing only eight games, was nominated as the team's Most Outstanding Rookie.

Over the next 12 seasons, Jurasin continued earning laurels for his performances at Defensive End, making him one of the Roughriders' all-time most popular players.

In 1987, he played all 18 games recording 4 defensive tackles and a team record 22 sacks and was nominated as Saskatchewan's Outstanding Defensive player, an honour he would also earn in 1996 and 1997. In 1989, Jurasin's all-star contributions helped the Roughriders win its second Grey Cup in franchise history by beating the Hamilton Tiger-Cats 43-40 in what some consider the greatest Grey Cup game of all-time.

When he retired in 1998, Jurasin was third All-Time in Canadian Football League (CFL) history with 142 sacks.
