Career stats

Steve Hardin (born December 30, 1971) was a linebacker in the Canadian Football League, playing 5 seasons with the BC Lions.[1]

A graduate of University of Oregon,[2] Hardin played in the WLAF with the Rhein Fire in 1996, and used this as a springboard to get a chance with the NFL's Indianapolis Colts (he played one game for them in 1996.)[3] He signed with the Leos in 1998 and won the Grey Cup with them in 2000 and was an all-star in 2002. Unfortunately for Hardin, his 2003 season (and his career) was cut short as a pre-season injury forced him to miss the entire season. Regardless, he put his time and energy to good use and won the prestigious Tom Pate Memorial Award for community service in 2003. He played 78 games for the Lions.[4]
