It did not take long for the team to experience success. The Redblacks won the Grey Cup Championship in 2016. The Championship ended a 40-year drought for the city’s teams. The Ottawa Redblacks have also finished at the top of their division three times and made it to the Grey Cup on two other occasions. Catch the Redblacks play some of their rivals, like the Montreal Alouettes and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in the upcoming 2020 season.

Arbuckle played in eight games in 2019 and ended the seasons with 11 touchdowns to go along with more than 2,100 passing yards.
