University of Regina Rams running back Kyle Borsa ran the fastest 40-yard time among invitees to the 2021 CFL Combine — Borsa’s official time was 4.46 seconds.
The event was completed virtually this year due to COVID restrictions.
Borsa also tied for top spot in the shuttle, finishing that drill in four seconds flat and produced a three-cone time of 6.80 seconds. He put up 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, and recorded a 10-foot, two-inch broad jump.
“I’ve obviously been working out hard for this for a couple years now and I feel that the hard work definitely paid off,” Borsa said.
“I was hoping to be in Toronto and doing the drills with everyone who’s eligible this year, but I’m very thankful that the Rams organization was able to host a Pro Day for us. Mark (McConkey) made the process so easy for me and I’m very thankful for him and other members on staff like Bruce Anderson and Thomas Retzlaff for helping me with the drills and filming me.”
The Regina native played two seasons with the Rams and recorded 122 carries for 683 yards and six touchdowns along with 21 receptions for 289 yards and one score. He was also impactful on special teams, returning 46 punts for 345 yards and 46 kick-offs for 878 yards.
Borsa is one of 13 players in the history of the Regina Rams to record over 2,000 all-purpose yards, which he accomplished in just 16 career games.
The 2021 CFL Draft is scheduled for Tuesday, May 4, and will be broadcast live on TSN.
