Riders Add National Kicker Campbell Fair

The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed National kicker Campbell Fair.

Fair (6’1-180) was selected by the Calgary Stampeders in the sixth round, 51st overall, of the 2023 CFL Draft and spent training camp with the team, hitting a 36-yard field goal in preseason.

Fair played four collegiate seasons (2018-22) at the University of Ottawa, seeing action in 28 games. During the 2022 season, the 23-year-old set the Gee-Gee’s record for longest field goal when he hit a 55-yard game winner. Overall, the Ontario native went 48-for-68 on field goal attempts and added 69 extra points. He also had 98 punts for a 37.7-yard average. He was named a Second-Team OUA All-Star in 2022 after leading the conference in field goals made.

In a corresponding move, the Club has released American wide receiver Kalija Lipscomb.
