Ricky Bell
Birth: Oct. 2, 1974
Columbia
Richland County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Feb. 17, 2011
Columbia
Richland County
South Carolina, USA

Professional Football Player. For ten seasons (1996 to 1998, 2001 to 2007), he played at the corner back position in the National and Canadian Football Leagues with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chicago Bears, Calgary Stampeders, Winnipeg Blue Bombers, Ottawa Renegades and Montreal Alouettes. He attended Eua Claire High School (South Carolina) and played collegiate football at North Carolina State University, before being signed as a non-drafted free agent by Jacksonville. During his rookie year, Bell served as a special teams player with the Jaguars; he was a member of the 1996 squad which clinched their first playoff berth in franchise history and reached the AFC Championship Game. Following a season in the NFL Europe league (1999) and the XFL (2000), Bell moved to the CFL from 2001 until 2007 where he established himself as a tough physical presence. He was part of a championship team, as a key player on the 2001 Grey Cup Title-winning Calgary team. He remained active in the sport, as he played with the Georgia Force of the Arena Football League in 2008. He is not to be confused with Ricky Bell, a running back who played in the NFL from 1977 until 1982. (bio by: C.S.)
