Acquired:

Antonio was signed by the Lions in May 2022 just prior to the club’s final pre-season game.

Highlights:

2022: Following his signing just prior to the regular season, Pipkin would go on to dress in all 18 regular season games plus both playoff contests at quarterback. He completed 29 of 52 passes for 393 yards and two touchdowns while his seven rushing touchdowns were good for a three-way tie for the team lead with Nathan Rourke and James Butler. Pipkin totaled 137 yards on 43 total carries in the regular season. In the Western Semi-Final win over Calgary, Pipkin executed a third-down gamble by hitting Keon Hatcher for a 45-yard touchdown to help put the game out of reach in the second half. The following week, he added a one-yard rushing major against Winnipeg in the Western Final.

2021: Antonio landed with the Toronto Argonauts in free agency and suited up in seven total contests en route to helping the Boatmen finish atop the East Division. In his lone start with Toronto, Pipkin completed ten passes for 121 yards.

2020: Signed with the Edmonton Elks as a free agent but did not suit up after the season was canceled due to the pandemic.

2017-2019: After a training camp stint with the Arizona Cardinals, Antonio moved north to the Montreal Alouettes and would go on to suit up in 23 contests over the next three seasons. His best campaign was in 2018 where he threw for 1,120 yards and three touchdowns on 78 total completions.

College:

2013-2016: Pipkin attended Tiffin University from 2013-16 and broke every major passing record for the program. He racked up over 10,000 yards and connected on 88 touchdowns in 44 total contests. The versatile pivot also contributed on the ground with over 2,000 yards and 25 touchdowns while leading the team in rushing in both 2014 and 2016.
