Eskimos add Ricky Ray to the Wall of Honour

By Admin User on October 7, 2019

Football legend and former Edmonton Eskimos quarterback, Ricky Ray, has been added to the Wall of Honour at Commonwealth Stadium. After ten years with the Edmonton Eskimos, and six years with the Toronto Argonauts, Ray retired in May of 2019.

Although Ray was ready to retire and is having fun with his time off the field, he says he is going to miss a few things about his time in the CFL.

“It’s when you have that bond with your teammates when you go on a championship run… Just the feeling you get from that is truly what I’m going to miss.”
