Canadian quarterbacks just don’t get opportunities in the CFL, so Jordan Yantz must be someone special.
The V.I. Raiders’ veteran QB received an invitation Saturday to participate in the B.C. Lions’ rookie camp. Yantz impressed the Leos at a junior evaluation camp last month and now advances to the next stage starting at the end of this month.
“I’m looking forward to it and I’m going in with arm blazing,” he said.
He said as a veteran of junior, he knows the Raiders playbook well enough that he can handle trying to learn some Lions plays, too.
“I’m going to go in there and try and learn the most complicated offence out there. I’m preparing for it mentally and hopefully I can handle it…” he said. “It’s going to be a lot for me but it’s a dream and maybe I can pursue it.”
