Jerry (Soupy) Camp­bell, a for­mer CFL all-star line­backer and mem­ber of the Cana­dian Foot­ball Hall of Fame, has died at age 73.

The Ot­tawa Red­blacks con­firmed Camp­bell’s death in a re­lease. Camp­bell played for the de­funct Ot­tawa Rough Riders for the bulk of his ca­reer from 1968 to 1975.

Camp­bell was a CFL all-star in each of his sea­sons with the Rough Riders and helped Ot­tawa win Grey Cup ti­tles 1968, 1969, and 1973. He also played for the Cal­gary Stam­ped­ers from 1966 to 1968, and again in 1976.

Camp­bell was in­ducted into the Ot­tawa Sport Hall of Fame in 1995 and the Cana­dian Foot­ball Hall of Fame in 1996.

“Sorry to hear the pass­ing of Jerry ‘Soupy’ Camp­bell who dom­i­nated his era,” CFL commissioner Randy Am­brosie posted on Twit­ter. “On be­half of our league heart­felt con­do­lences to his fam­ily.”
