Tyrell Fenroy, the all-time leading rusher in Louisiana college football history and a four-year star for UL’s Ragin Cajuns, has inked a deal to play for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League, according to a story today in The Daily Advertiser.
Fenroy was one of only a handful of running backs in the annals of college football history to rush for 1,000 yards or more in each of his four seasons. He was a finalist in 2008 for the Doak Walker Award for the nation’s top running back, and was honored two weeks ago by the Greater New Orleans Sports Hall of Fame as the top male amateur athlete in Louisiana for 2008. Fenroy signed a free agent contract this spring with the Chicago Bears but was released a few weeks later. The CFL is currently in its preseason schedule; the regular season begins next week.
