Sherrod Baltimore, the Maryland native has spent two seasons with Ottawa. Two successful seasons, I’d say. In the two seasons that he has worn red and black (’17,’18), he’s had two trips to the playoffs, one ending in the Eastern Semi Final, and the other ending in the big game! In Sherrod’s 2018 season, he started the year on the practice squad. With a few big free agent signings, it did not look promising that we’d see a lot of him throughout the year. Although, during the season Marcel made a some moves, releasing both DBs Loucheiz Purifoy and Josh Johnson having Sherrod Baltimore sent back onto the gameday roster. While on the roster, there was no looking back for Sherrod. Racking up over 15 tackles throughout the season, and being an absolute ball hawk during the second half of the season, he recorded 4 interceptions, one of which came in the Grey Cup!
Before his days in Ottawa, Baltimore went to The University of Maine. During his career at Maine, he recorded 66 tackles, 11 pass deflections and 2 interceptions that came in his Senior year. He later went undrafted in both the NFL and CFL, and was picked up by Ottawa in the 2017 free agent camp!
During the off-season, I reached out to many of the guys, to see if they could answer some questions.
Q: What is your favorite color? A: Black
Q: What is your favorite meal, desert included? A: Lobster, crab legs, a filet mignon with zucchini and wild rice and for desert, vanilla ice cream and chocolate chip cookie sandwich.
Q: What is your dream car? A: A Rolls Royce, with stars in the ceiling.
Q: What would you be doing if you couldn’t play sports? A: I’d be either rapping, or coaching sports.
Q: If you could pick any team to play for, who are you picking? A: Patriots, Bill Belichick does a good job at putting players in a good position to make plays no matter who you are. Not to mention that they win super bowls.
Now that you know more about Sherrod, I hope you’ve become a bigger fan of his that you were before!
