BC Lions trio visits the Valley

Three of the BC Lions' offensive standouts will spend two hours at the Chilliwack Mall Saturday afternoon.

Three BC Lions are in Chilliwack Saturday for a meet-and-greet at the Chilliwack Mall.

Emmanuel Arceneaux, Andrew Harris and Courtney Taylor will be at Sports & Stuff from 2 to 4 p.m., less than 24 hours after hosting the Toronto Argonauts in a Canadian Football League clash.

The trio represent three of BC’s brightest offensive lights.

Arceneaux is in his fourth year with the Lions.

He had 858 receiving yards in his rookie year (2009) and topped the 1,000 yard mark the following year.

Arceneaux tried his luck in the National Football League in 2012 and 2013, spending time with the Minnesota Vikings, Washington Redskins and New York Jets.

He returned to the Leos last year and has established himself as the team’s big-play threat.

Taylor joins him in the BC receiving corps, and is in his third season with BC.

Taylor is a rarity, an athlete who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

The disease is known to cause fatigue and sensory issues, but Taylor has fought through adversity to become a dangerous weapon. Now in his third year, the Alabama native has 45 catches for 516 yards.

Harris is staking a claim as one of the top Canadian running backs in league history.

The Winnipeg native has run for 536 yards on 101 carries this year, accumulating another 440 yards on  36 catches.

Harris played Chilliwack’s Valley Huskers when he was a member of the BC Football Conference Vancouver Island Raiders.
