Worthy, a Griffin, Ga., native was a standout at Troy, earning first-team All-Sun Belt honors as a kick returner and second-team All-Conference as an athlete. He finished his Troy career with over 1,700 yards receiving and 1,900 kick return yards.
He was originally drafted by the Houston Texans in the 2015 NFL Draft and played for both the Texans and New York Jets before starting his CFL career in 2017. Worthy played with the Toronto Argonauts from 2017 through 2021, primarily as a kick returner.
After a stellar 2022 campaign with the Alouettes, Worthy was a finalist for the league’s Special Teams Player of the Year.
