Husker kicker on CFL radar

Valley Husker kicker Dan Erickson has drawn notice from the Canadian Football League's BC Lions.

  • Mar. 12, 2014 10:00 a.m.

Valley Huskers kicker Dan Erickson is one of 15 BC Football Conference stars invited to the BC Lions spring evaluation camp.

Erickson will be put through the paces in late April, going through the same procedures that are used at the Canadian Football League and National Football League scouting combines.

His height and weight will be measured, and Erickson will be challenged to post good numbers in the bench press, broad jump and vertical jump.

The defending Cullen Cup champion Vancouver Island Raiders will have three players at the camp — wideout Whitman Tomusiak, running back Aston Galloway and defensive lineman Ash Gayat.

The Langley Rams send Chilliwack native Evan Foster (defensive line), Anthony Daley (offensive line), Nathan Lund (running back), Steve Thomas (kicker) and Malcolm Williams (wideout).

The Okanagan Sun send defensive lineman Jonas Gering, linebacker Brandon Donkers and defensive backs Jack Rush and Brennan Van Nistelrooy.

The Kamloops Broncos send defensive lineman Braden McCarthy and wideout Derek Yachison.
