The Canadian Football League's Winnipeg Blue Bombers have announced that they have signed non-import punter Brett Cameron, a former University of North Dakota standout. As per team policy, terms of the deal are not disclosed.

“Brett is a prospect with great potential at the professional level,” said Vice-President and General Manager Joe Mack. “When it is the right fit, it is always appealing to have local talent within your organization and we look forward to Brett coming in and competing in our training camp.”

Cameron (6-1, 194 lbs.) played his high school football at Winnipeg St. Paul's before heading to UND for four seasons. A three year starter at UND, Cameron finished with a career punting average of 40.6 -– tied for second-best in UND history. He completed his senior season with a career best punting average of 42.1 yards, good for fourth highest in school history.

Throughout his four year career at UND, Cameron landed 57 punts inside the 20-yard line and had 30 punts of 50-yards or longer. His career-long punt was 65 yards during his sophomore year.

Brett is the son of Blue Bomber legend and Hall of Fame punter, Bob Cameron. The elder Cameron played 23 seasons for the Blue Bombers, helping Winnipeg win three Grey Cups.
