The last four of Medlock’s nine CFL seasons were in Winnipeg, from 2016-19, and he went out in style, cementing his legacy as one of the best kickers in league history.

His 85.5% field goal success rate with the Bombers is the best in franchise history.

Nicknamed “Money,” the California product capped his career with a six-for-seven performance in the 2019 Grey Cup, scoring 19 of Winnipeg’s points in a 33-12 win over Hamilton.

Medlock set a CFL record with 60 field goals in 2016, booted 56 the following season — the fourth-most in league history — and tied team records for the most field goals in a game, with seven, and longest field goal, at 58 yards.

He won the league’s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player Award his first year in Winnipeg, and retired as the No. 4 point producer in Bombers history, with 802.

His 1,535 career points rank 15th in the CFL.

As a punter, Medlock posted an average of 43.8 yards, ranked among the top ten Winnipeg kickers, all-time.
