The Saskatchewan Roughrider announced today they have signed import quarterback Noah Shepard and non-import defensive back Ludovic Kashindi to the practice roster. Financial details of the signings were not released.
Shepard (6’2 – 223 lbs) spent a portion of the 2010 season with the Green Bay Packers after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent. The 23-year-old was a four-year starter at South Dakota where he finished his career as the most decorated passer in Coyotes history with school records in passing yards (8,936), passing touchdowns (77) and total offense (11,133). His 36 rushing touchdowns ranks second in school history.
Kashindi (5’10 – 176 lbs) was most recently released from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats after signing with the team as a free agent earlier this year. Despite being highly ranked heading into the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft, the Sherbrooke product went undrafted due to an achilles injury sustained while training in the off-season. In his senior season at Sherbrooke, he tallied 19 defensive tackles and was an East-West Bowl selection.
