The Calgary Stampeders of the CFL announced on Monday that they have signed former Florida Gators defensive lineman Torrey Davis.

Davis, who made a pair of clutch goal line tackle to stop Oklahoma from scoring a touchdown in the 2009 BCS Championship Game that Florida eventually won, transferred to Jacksonville State due to academic issues and legal troubles.

He played for the AFL’s Spokane Shock last season after trying out for but failing to make the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ roster.

    I remember his play vs Oklahoma, and saw some quote after the game when asked about it he said, “I decided I wasn’t going to be blocked”. My first thought was, “if only he decided that more often.” I hope he’s matured and learned so he can reach his dream. Best of luck Torrey.
