Brad Sinopoli, your 2016 Grey Cup most outstanding Canadian and long time CFL veteran. Sinopoli who has spent the last 4 seasons with Ottawa, is looking at being Ottawa’s number one target going into the 2019 season, but he has a backstory to getting to this point of his career! Brad Sinopoli played all his career at Ottawa University as a QUARTERBACK, yes that is right, the Ottawa Redblacks number one receiver was a quarterback! Once signed by the Calgary Stampeders, Brad played two seasons behind quarterbacks, Henry Burris, Kevin Glenn, Bo Levi Mitchell and Drew Tate. After spending two seasons in the quarterback position, in the 2013 season he was converted to slot back, where he’d catch balls from Bo Levi Mitchell and Kevin Glenn before his big free agency sign with Ottawa. In the offseason before the 2015 season, Sinopoli was signed by the Ottawa Redblacks, along with Greg Ellingson, Ernest Jackson and Chris Williams, and that season was record breaking, having all 4 of the receivers catching and running for over 1,000 yards! Brad also won the 2016 Grey Cup with Ottawa, and has had 1,000 yard seasons since his career in Ottawa had started.
Brad who led the Redblacks in receiving in 2018’s campain, also had broken the record for most receptions in one season as a National. Sinopoli is one of Canada’s athletes that has changed the game for younger Canadian athletes like myself. Showing that Canada’s recievers are just as good as America’s. Maybe even better!
Now that you know a little nore about your number one reciever in Ottawa, hopefully that gave you a little more inspiration on buying that 88 jersey!
