Andrew Buckley (born August 20, 1993) is a professional Canadian football quarterback for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He was drafted in the seventh round, 63rd overall, by the Stampeders in the 2015 CFL Draft. He participated in the Stampeders' 2015 training camp before returning to university to play his final season of CIS football. He re-signed with the Stampeders on January 6, 2016 and made the team's 2016 roster as the third-string quarterback. He played CIS football for the Calgary Dinos where he won two consecutive Hec Crighton Trophys in 2014 and 2015.
Buckley played as a back-up quarterback for the Stampeders in the 2016 Grey Cup and scored a rushing touchdown in the third quarter. He was the first Canadian quarterback to score a touchdown in a Grey Cup since Russ Jackson in 1969. However, he was tackled on another touchdown attempt late in the game, which contributed to the Stampeders losing the game to the Ottawa RedBlacks.
