Former Saskatchewan Roughrider linebacker and 1989 Grey Cup champion David Albright has died. He was 63.
The Riders revealed Albright's death in a social media post on Saturday.
"The Saskatchewan Roughriders are saddened to learn of alumnus David Albright's sudden passing," the Riders said in a tweet. "We send our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones."
Albright, who was originally from California, was a career Rider. He spent six seasons playing in the green and white from 1986 to 1991.
Albright remains second all-time in defensive tackles with Riders and 13th all-time in the CFL, the team's post said.
In 1987, the linebacker had 118 defensive tackles — setting a franchise single-season record.
The record lasted for 35 years before being broken by Darnell Sankey when he made 120 tackles in 2022.
A memorable moment of Albright's career came in the 1989 Western finals against Edmonton when the linebacker recovered a fumble and ran 62 yards for a game-tying touchdown.
The Riders would go on to win the game and then beat Hamilton to capture the team's second-ever Grey Cup.
