Calgary CB Capitola calls it quits November 1, 2021 November 1, 2021 admin

CAPITOLA, Calif.

— Calgary cornerback Justin Capitolan will retire at the end of the season after the CFL season concludes.

The Calgary Stampeders announced Capitolas final contract with the team Thursday, with the deal effective at the start of next season.

Calgarians Capitolans contract expires after the 2019 season, and he’ll become a free agent on Aug. 31, 2019.

The Calgary native joined the Stampedes from the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2019 and played five seasons for the team, recording 12 interceptions and 39 tackles in 77 games.

Capitolan is the second-youngest member of the team in the CFL.

Last season, he recorded 37 interceptions and 12 tackles.

His performance in the playoffs helped the Stamps to the Grey Cup championship, and his season came to an end with a knee injury that forced him to miss the rest of the year.

He was on the field for his final regular-season game in the championship game, a 38-21 loss to the Hamilton Tiger Cats.

In his six seasons with the St. John’s Gaels, Capitolo has made 65 interceptions and 14 interceptions.
