Saskatchewan Roughriders’ offensive lineman Logan Bandy has retired from professional football at the age of 24.

The native of Calgary, Alta. announced his decision via his personal Instagram account on Thursday.

“Crazy to think after all these years I’m calling it a career,” Bandy wrote. “I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to share the field with so many of my brothers and play for some amazing organizations along the way. Thank you to everyone who’s helped me along the way. Inmate #0069 out!”

The six-foot-five, 285-pound blocker was selected 38th overall in the fifth round of the 2021 CFL Draft, returning to school the following season. He suited up for 29 games over the past two years in Saskatchewan, making 15 starts at centre and serving as the team’s primary sixth man.

Prior to his CFL career, Bandy played in 38 games over five seasons at the University of Calgary, starting for two years at left tackle before moving to centre in his final campaign. The decorated offensive lineman was a three-time Canada West All-Star and earned U Sports All-Canadian honours in 2019 as well. 

The Riders have seven Canadian offensive linemen on the roster ahead of the upcoming CFL Draft. They will open their 2024 regular season on Saturday, June 8 when they visit the Edmonton Elks at Commonwealth Stadium.
