Dave Stala (born October 25, 1979 in Myslenice, Poland) is a professional Canadian football slotback for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League. He was originally drafted in the 6th round, 50th overall by the Alouettes as a placekicker in 2003. He played CIS football for the Saint Mary's Huskies. After injury plagued seasons in 2007 and 2008, he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 2009 and rejuvenated his career in his hometown. Stala is well known for a unique soccer-inspired touchdown celebration which he performed on July 31, 2010. After five seasons with the Tiger-Cats, Stala was released by the club on January 9, 2014.[1] He re-signed with Montreal the next day to a two-year contract, reuniting him with the team that drafted him.[2]

Dave Stala is often referred to by the nicknames "Sticky Stala" or just "Sticky".[3]
