Chilliwack’s Evan Foster makes CFL debut

The defensive end is expected to suit up for a preseason game vs the Montreal Alouettes.

Chilliwack’s Evan Foster will make his Canadian Football League debut tonight when his Toronto Argonauts host the Montreal Alouettes in preseason action.

Kickoff is 4:30 p.m. at BMO Stadium with the game broadcast online through TSN Radio 690 Montreal.

Foster, a Chilliwack Minor Football grad, is making his way through his first pro training camp after being selected in the third round (19th overall) of the CFL entry draft.

The six-foot-one and 245 pound defensive end spent the last three seasons playing U-Sports football with the University of Manitoba Bisons.

Toronto will not have a preseason game televised.

The first time to watch Foster in action, if he makes the Argo roster, is June 25 when TO hosts the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
