Calgary Stampeders offensive lineman Nila Kasitati has announced his retirement.
“It was a tough decision to make but regardless, I am proud to have been on this team,” said Kasitati. “It was an honour and pleasure to have been a part of the Stampeders family.”
The University of Oklahoma product played 20 games over two seasons with the Red and White, including 16 starts at right tackle last season. He also started the West Semi-Final in 2019 against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
“I thank Nila for being part of the Stampeders family and wish him the best of luck in the future with his family,” said Stampeders head coach Dave Dickenson.
Kasitati was pencilled-in as a starter for 2021, which leaves a hole for Calgary to fill in training camp along the offensive line.
