Lion linebackers visiting Valley

Solomon Elimimian and Adam Bighill are two of the best in the Canadian Football League, and they're coming to Chilliwack Saturday.

Two CFL all-star linebackers are coming to Chilliwack this weekend as Solomon Elimimian (pictured) and Adam Bighill drop by Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall.

Reigning Canadian Football League MVP Solomon Elimimian and fellow all-star Adam Bighill are coming to Chilliwack this weekend.

The star linebackers for the BC Lions will be at Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall Saturday afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m.

They’ll be accompanied by Alexandria, a member of the Felion dance team.

Fans will be able to get autographs and put their name in for some big prizes, including a trip to Calgary to see the Lions play the Stampeders.

Other items up for grabs include an autographed jersey, a night at The Coast Hotel, breakfast at Preston’s and two tickets to a Chilliwack Chiefs game.

Elimimian comes to town a little hobbled after tearing his Achilles tendon during a game last weekend against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Elimimian set a new single-season mark for tackles last year and, alongside Bighill, forms the heart of the Lions D.

Bighill is in his fifth CFL season after graduating from Central Washington University. He and Elimimian were members of BC’s 2011 Grey Cup champions.
