Career

Olafioye (6’6″, 325 lbs.) possesses an impressive résumé in the CFL, although he is only 29-years-old, as he was named a CFL All-Star the past six seasons. The seven-year veteran was named the CFL’s Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman in 2012, after helping the Lions win the Grey Cup in 2011, while he was protecting quarterback Travis Lulay, who was elected the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player that same season.

 

The Detroit, MI native played his first CFL-game on July 4, 2010 and has not missed a single game since then, making 126 consecutive career-starts. During that time, he helped the Lions offensive line finish atop the CFL for least sacks allowed in 2011 and 2012. He was also selected the West Division’s Most Outstanding Lineman on three separate occasions (2011, 2012 and 2015).

 

Last season, he was moved to the left tackle position and helped protect quarterback Jonathon Jennings, who threw for more than 5,000 yards, all while allowing the Lions offence to amass over 2,000 rushing-yards.
