It is with great sadness that the Stampeders learn of the death of alumnus Ron Allbright. He was 81.

 Nicknamed “Badger,” Allbright was primarily an offensive lineman but played on both sides of the ball during his 12-year career with the Stampeders and he was added the to the Stamps’ Wall of Fame in 2014.

 He was the franchise’s all-time leader in games played upon his retirement in 1967 and his total of 188 regular-season contests held up as the Stamps’ all-time high until 1972 when he was passed by longtime teammate Larry Robinson. He played 26 more games in the playoffs.

 Allbright helped Calgary lead the CFL in scoring in 1963, 1964, 1965 and 1967.

 Allbright was a local product, having attended Western Canada High School and played for the Calgary Bronks juniors.
