When you hear the name Craig ‘Death’ Roh different visions come to mind. I had the privilege to catch up with this man who is more than a triple threat on the field – he is a player of integrity, faith and belief that all things are possible when you take the high road.
Have a listen and learn more about #93 and this man behind the football player – Craig Roh.
“Well, Roh is my last name, and I realized one day that ‘Death Roh’ would be a cool nickame, I realized this in senior year of high school. I had an interview right after that for a Michigan website and I told them that my nickname was ‘Death Roh’, and it stuck ever since. I’m definitely not a ‘death row’ type personality, but the nickname is cool. You gotta have a different persona on the field – you can’t always be who you are in civilian life. On the field, you gotta be violent, you gotta be aggressive. Off the field, you have to be loving, charismatic, and gentle.
My journey with the Lions is awesome. It’s truly a blessing,I came out here just wanting to keep playing football. Vancouver has been an awesome city,the BC Lions organization has been so fun to get to know, my teammates are awesome, the D-line is awesome, and I’m really happy up here.”
