Denodus O’Bryant is getting another chance to play football.

A 2008 Washington High School graduate, O’Bryant has agreed to terms with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League.

The CFL regular season already is under way. Teams play 18 games during the regular season.

The Stampeders currently have a record of 5-2, one game behind Saskatchewan in the West Division standings, with 11 games remaining in the regular season.

During its last home game, Calgary drew a crowd of 35,637, its largest of the season.

The next game for the Stampeders is set for Friday at Toronto. The next home game is Monday, Sept. 2, against Edmonton.

O’Bryant had a standout college football career at Lindenwood University as a running back and kick returner.

In his four seasons at Lindenwood, O’Bryant was a two-time NAIA All-American and a two-time Heart of America Athletic Conference player of the year.

O’Bryant, 5-9 and 195 pounds, is Lindenwood’s all-time career leader in total touchdowns (62), rushing touchdowns (38), rushing yards (3,246), kick return yards (1,377) and all-purpose yards (6,126).

He averaged 7.2 yards per carry at Lindenwood, adding 15 receiving touchdowns and nine return touchdowns.

Following his senior season at Lindenwood, O’Bryant signed as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts.

He participated in the Colts’ rookie mini camp, but was later released prior to training camp.

The CFL has eight teams in eight different cities, and are divided into two divisions of four teams each.

The official playing field in the CFL is larger than the regulation field in the United States.

The Canadian field of play is 110 yards long by 65 yards wide, rather than 100 yards long by 53⅓yards wide in the United States.

The end zones in Canadian football are 10 yards deeper than American football end zones as the CFL uses 20-yard-deep end zones.
