Former Roughrider Favourite Weston Dressler Announces Retirement After 11 CFL Seasons

Weston Dressler is starting the next chapter of his life.

After an 11 year career in the CFL split between Saskatchewan and Winnipeg, Weston Dressler has retired.

 He has taken a job in his home state of North Dakota with Sanford Health as a community relations specialist.

He says this was a decision made shortly after Christmas.

Dressler, who just became a father for the second time, says the moments he will remember are the time he spent with the guys in the locker-room and the friends he made.
Dressler says he was very appreciative as to how Rider fans took him under their arm and made him one of their own even though he wasn’t a local kid.
He first came to Regina to try out at a rookie camp in 2008.
When asked how he would like Rider fans and CFL fans to remember him, Dressler says for the player that he was who did everything he could on and off the field to help the team win.
In his 11 years, Dressler caught 715 passes for over 10-thousand yards and 61 TD’s.
He was named an all-star five times and won the league’s top rookie award in 2008.
