Ralph played for the Bears from 2014 to 2016, after playing for the Calgary Colts of the Prairie Football Conference.
He red-shirted at Weber State University in 2013 before deciding to join the Bears.
Ralph signed with the Toronto Argonauts as an un-drafted free-agent in May of 2017 and won a Grey Cup title that season. In 39 games in three seasons with the Argos, Ralph caught 72 passes for 714 yards and scored one touchdown.
