Apparently the talk about former Dartmouth linebacker Flo Orimolade '17 going to the Calgary Stampeders was on target.
Orimolade returns to pro football north of the border after signing last year with the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent and appearing in several preseason games. He'll be joined in the CFL preseason camp by former Dartmouth tailback Ryder Stone '18, drafted by the Montreal Alouettes.
Should Orimolade make the Calgary roster he will be the second Dartmouth player in 10 years to play for the Stamps. Defensive end Anthony Gargiulo's '06 career with the team was off to a promising start before it was ended when his leg was broken on an infamous play. CLICK HERE and scroll down to the B.C. Lions subhead to read a little about that play and watch the replay.
Gargiulo and Orimolade are 1-2 all-time in sacks at Dartmouth. Gargiulo closed out his career with 25 and Orimolade with 23.5.
