3downnat: CB National cornerback Shamar Busby playing for Alphas of TSL

Post by 4th&long »

Ours friends at 3Down posted this....

https://3downnation.com/2021/05/03/nati ... ng-league/

>> Canadian cornerback Shamar Busby has made his way to The Spring League.

Busby went unselected in the 2019 CFL Draft after recording 43 tackles and five knockdowns at Southeastern Louisiana University. He ran a 4.68 forty-yard dash at the CFL National Combine at five-foot-ten and 190 pounds.

The 24-year-old signed with the Ottawa Redblacks but was released at the end of training camp. He later joined the practice roster with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in October and was under contract for 2020 but the season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Busby was born in Philadelphia but counts as a national in the CFL because he was raised in Montreal. The Spring League will allow him the opportunity to perform, get film, and potentially generate renewed interest from teams north of the border. <<

Good shout out for TSL on 3down Eh?
