Judge was born on November 29, 1994 in Montreal, Quebec to actor Christopher Judge (born Los Angeles, California, October 13, 1964) and Margaret Judge (nee Schinke, born Edmonton, Alberta, September 20, 1971), a former model. The family moved from Montreal (where Christopher Judge had been working on a television show) to Los Angeles when Judge was three months old. When Judge was three years old, the family moved to British Columbia and split their time living between Vancouver and Victoria. It was during his time in Vancouver, that Judge developed an interest in football and started playing minor football and attending B.C. Lions games. When Judge was twelve years old, the family moved back to California, primarily to give Judge and his older brother, Christopher, a better environment to develop their football skills.
College football careerEdit
Judge has played both inside and outside linebacker positions and special teams for the Pac-12 Conference team. A highly rated recruit from Oaks Christian School in Thousand Oaks, California, Judge has at UCLA moved from middle linebacker to the outside linebacker position.
Judge was drafted with the 2nd overall pick in the 2017 CFL Draft by the Saskatchewan Roughriders. As a result of having lived in Southern California since he was twelve years old and being off the radar for most CFL scouts, Judge was a late addition to the 2017 CFL Draft as CFL Central Scouting did not realize he was a Canadian citizen and that he had also met the 2017 CFL pre-requisites for being a National player by having lived in Canada for at least five years prior to his eighteenth birthday.
He is the second-oldest child of actor and former Oregon Ducks' safety Christopher Judge and former Wilhelmina and Folio runway and print model Margaret Judge, known for her work as a Virginia Slims model. He is the brother of Christopher Jordan Judge, who played as an outside linebacker for the UCLA Bruins, Catrina Judge, a fitness trainer and half-sister Chloe Judge. In 2006, Judge's parents had considered filming a documentary about the Mount Doug Rams, a high school football team in Victoria, B.C.
