'Soupy' Campbell Dies

For those of you who remember the pretty good Ottawa teams of the late 60's and early 70's you will recall "Soupy' Campbell (great nickname) who just passed away. Perennial all-star linebacker.

Any memories of him out there?

  1. Yes Mark, at least there maybe a few of us on here that remember Jerry "Soupy" Campbell !!

One of the all time great MLB in this league when playing for Ottawa Rough Riders.
Those were the days when Hamilton used to beat out Ottawa each year in hard fought playoff games !!

Soupy Campbell not only a Hall of Fame player, but a great gentleman also, away from the game.

My old friend and neighbor, Russ Jackson will be mourning his loss also, as one of his great old team mates !!


My favourite linebacker when he played…he always arrived in a bad frame of mind.:frowning:

I remember the name when his team played my Tiger cats.
Spent a good deal of time during those encounters cursing him. Great player.
May you rest in peace, Mr. Campbell.
