This episode features Jesse Lumsden who after a standout college football career at McMaster University where he won the Hec Crighton Trophy as the most outstanding CIS football player went on to play four years for the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats where he was nominated for Rookie of the Year in 2006 and an East All-star team member in 2007. In 2009 he signed as a free agent with the Edmonton Eskimos but a shoulder injury ended the season very early. He turned this injury into opportunity and pushed in the 2 and 4-man Bobsled with legend Pierre Leuders at the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. He called it quits in football in 2010 and went on to compete at two more Olympic games in Sochi and PyeongChang racing in both the 2 and 4 man events. He won a silver medal at the 2012 and 2017 world championships in two-man and the Crystal Globe in 2012 and 2017 as the overall points winner in two-man with teammates Lyndon Rush and Justin Kripps.
