Guelph native and resident Jake Reinhart is a true Canadian.

Weather doesn’t stop the Toronto Argonauts long snapper from making sure he’s prepared for CFL football in 2021. Reinhart embraced the winter training during the coronavirus pandemic.

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

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.

The 31-year-old Reinhart is under contract through the 2022 season and he’ll be #SnowStrong for kick-off when three-down football returns.
