Episode 7 – Jon Cornish

It’s been two years since Jon Cornish hung up his cleats, retiring as one of the most dynamic running backs in Stampeders history.

Luckily for Stamps fans, he can still be seen on the sidelines and in the stands as the official Game Day Ambassador for the Red and White. In this edition of the Stampeders Up Close Podcast, we sit down with the three-time Most Outstanding Canadian award winner to find out what he’s up to off the field in retirement.

A two-time Grey Cup Champion, Cornish is proud to call Calgary home, staying here after his nine-year professional football career ended.

Cornish explains how football helped set him up for his professional career in investment banking and gives advice to current players on how to prepare for their inevitable retirement.

Cornish also gives his insight into the 2017 squad and how winning – and losing – play an important part in a championship season.
