Keep on snapping: Argos re-sign long snapper Jake Reinhart

A key member of the Toronto Argonauts’ special teams will be sticking around for a few more years.

The double blue and long snapper Jake Reinhart agreed to a new three-year extension that will keep the Guelph, Ontario native with the Argos through the 2022 season.

“I’m excited to be staying in Toronto and grateful for the opportunity to be here long-term,” said Reinhart. “Coming from Guelph and being able to play in front of friends and family every home game at BMO Field is a huge plus for me and I can’t wait for June to get here.”

Reinhart, the Argos’ longest-tenured player, had a 94-game playing streak (including playoffs) snapped in 2019 after suffering an injury in the season opener but went on to play 12 games last season.

The special teams ace has been a model of durability throughout his entire football career having never missed a game through high school, OVFL, OUS, and CFL until week three of 2019.

The former University of Guelph Gryphon originally joined the Argos in 2014 after being signed as a free agent and has added 31 special teams tackles over 102 games.
