Stefan More Flintoft (born October 8, 1995) is a professional gridiron football punter for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League (CFL).

College career

After using a redshirt season in 2014, Flintoft played college football for the UCLA Bruins from 2015 to 2018.[1] After dressing as a backup punter and kicker in 2015, he became the team's primary punter in 2016 and continued in that role for the remainder of his collegiate career.[1][2]

Professional career

Flintoft attended mini-camp with the Denver Broncos after going undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, but was not offered a contract by the team.[2] After not playing in 2019, he signed with the BC Lions on January 14, 2020.[3] However, he did not play in 2020 due to the cancellation of the 2020 CFL season.

Flintoft began the 2021 season on the practice roster, but made his professional debut in week 3 on August 19, 2021, against the Edmonton Elks, where he had six punts for a 51.2-yard average.[2] He finished the season as the team's punter having played in the remaining 12 regular season games where he punted 74 times with a 47.8-yard average.[2] He was the team's nominee for Most Outstanding Special Teams Player in 2021.[4]

On December 23, 2021, it was announced that Flintoft had signed a contract extension with the Lions.[5] He retained his job as the team's punter for the 2022 season.[2]
