BCFC grads stick with CFL Lions

A pair of recent BC Football Conference players will be on the BC Lions practice squad as the 2014 CFL season starts.

Two BC Football Conference stars have found their way onto the practice roster of the BC Lions.

Steven Doege, a defensive end who earned his stripes with the Okanagan Sun, is joined by Vancouver Island Raiders wideout Whitman Tomusiak. Both are part of the 10 player practice squad.

The main roster for the Lions includes three BCFC grads. Once upon a time, veteran placekicker Paul McCallum booted balls for the Surrey Rams.

Running back Andrew Harris terrorized defences when he played for the Raiders, and long-snapper/linebacker Jordan Matechuk is a Victoria Rebels alum.

The Lions have also listed Langley Rams offensive lineman Anthony Daley as a territorial exemption.

Other BCFC grads around the league include Rob Cote (running back, Calgary), Andrew Smith (slotback, Montreal) and Robin Maderious (wideout, Ottawa).
