Thirty-three-year-old Fiji-born, Richmond-raised offensive guard Bobby Singh is in his second stint with the Lions. He's the only player with CFL, NFL and XFL championship rings.

24 hours: What's it like to be back with the Lions after a few years with Calgary and Winnipeg?

#62 Bobby Singh: I didn't think it was going to happen. I can teach some of the younger guys my knowledge and show my leadership, that's what's exciting for me to be back in my hometown and be involved in the community.

24: During your previous stint you were elected to the Richmond school board. What did you learn?

#62: I learned to be patient. It's almost the opposite. In football it's aggressive, go-go-go, results now. Whereas the school board you've got to listen, you've got to talk, do your homework and know what's going on and be patient.

24: Is there a future for you in politics, on school board or a higher office?

#62: I'm not sure, I know my dad wants me to pursue it further. I'll never say never. If I do, it will definitely be when I'm in my 40s.

24: You are still in the education business in a way. How was your first Down Set Hut football camp?

#62: We had about 125 kids, a lot of great comments and feedback. We plan to do it again next year. It's definitely a lot of work organizing it. The smiles on the kids' faces when they leave is priceless. We had a lot of Lions show up and support me.
