Sikh Youth from BC to Play on CFL Saskatchewan Rough Riders

Postby Canuck Singh » Thu Jun 19, 2008 5:23 pm

Nuvraj Singh Bassi will soon make history as the first keshadhari (turbaned) SIkh in the Canadian Football League (CFL), when he makes his June CFL debut as a member of the Grey Cup Champion Saskatchewan Rough Riders.

Nuvraj, a Vancouver native, attended college at the University of Oregon. Despite receiving more than 40 offers for football scholarships, the North Delta Secondary school player chose to stay in the northwest to remain close to his family. He played a few seasons with the Oregon Ducks. My Pac-10 allegiances aside, he is a great player and a great guy.

I had the chance to meet Navraj a few years ago and I must say that boy can eat!. He is a vegetarian and from what I remember he smashed three large cheese pizzas by himself!! I asked how he got so big and he told me instead of milk, he used to drink half and half.

The six foot six (6′6″) 294 pounder is going to need the size as the Rough Rides Riders (thanks Behaving Bradley!) intend to play him ironman, on both offense and defense, as a member of the D-line and as a blocking tight-end.
