Bob Skemp is a Canadian football player. Drafted in the third round, 27th overall, by the BC Lions, he played seven years in the CFL.[2] He has been nominated as an honorable mention to the greatest CFL draft picks of all time [3]

Growing up in Richmond, British Columbia Skemp, who still holds records in the CJFL,[4] played his junior football with the Richmond Raiders, where his father Archie Skemp was head coach from 1984 - 1989.[5] He later played with the UBC Thunderbirds.

During his first year in the CFL in 1986 Skemp was claimed as an unprotected player by the Montreal Alouettes as a non protected player. In 1987 during the equalization draft Bob was drafted by the Toronto Argonauts where he would continue to play for them until the 1992 season.[6]

During the 1991 CFL year Skemp was the starting right guard on the 1991 Grey Cup Toronto Argonauts football team.[7]
