Winnipeg Blue Bombers offensive lineman Jermarcus Hardrick will be suiting up for another season with the Blue and Gold.

It will be Hardrick’s seventh season in the CFL and his fifth with the Bombers. He has played in 67 games since joining the team in 2016, and he started in all 18 games and three playoff games at right tackle during the Bombers Grey Cup winning run in 2019.

Hardrick is a mainstay on an offensive line that blocked for the league’s leading rusher, Andrew Harris.

The native of Nebraska is also know for jumping into the stands to celebrate touchdowns, a practice that has come to be known as the ‘Hardrick Hop.’
