BC Lions stars visit Chilliwack

Canadian Football League standouts Andrew Harris, Angus Reid and Adam Bighill visit Chilliwack Aug. 24.

Lions legend Angus Reid comes to Chilliwack Aug. 24.

BC Football Conference grad Andrew Harris leads a trio of BC Lions stars to Chilliwack Aug. 24.

Harris, the top all-purpose running back in the Canadian Football League, will be joined by center Angus Reid and linebacker Adam Bighill.

They will be at Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall from 2 to 4 p.m., signing autographs and chatting with fans.

Harris, a former Vancouver Island Raider, is in his fourth year with the Lions. Five games in, he has 648 combined rushing/receiving yards.

Harris was the outstanding Canadian in the 2011 Grey Cup game, rushing for 65 yards in a 35-23 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Last year, Harris and fellow Canadian running back Jon Cornish (Calgary Stampeders)  ran for 1000 yards —  the first time since 1956 that two Canadian running backs have topped that mark in the same season.

Reid has delivered key blocks on many Harris runs.

A lock for the Lions Ring of Honour once he retires, the Simon Fraser University grad is in his 13th season in the orange and black.

Reid has been the unquestioned starter at center for the last nine seasons, helping the team win three Grey Cups.

He has spent the early part of this season, likely his last, on the injured list.

Bighill spent some time on the injured list as well, returning to action two weeks ago.

The Central Washington University grad is in his third season with the Leos, entrenching himself as a starting linebacker.

Bighill was a tackling machine last year, racking up 104 stops and nine sacks.  In four games this year, the 23-year-old has 23 tackles and two sacks.
