NWSB Insider and BL Lions’ blogger Bryan McFarlane talks about five players to keep your eye on if you’re paying close attention to the BC Lions this year, they may just surprise you! With the great threat of Andrew Harris in the backfield, he keeps opposing defenses on alert and frees up a bit of space in the secondary for Lulay to pick apart. So even though the orange and white will be without their beloved fan-favorite Simon, don’t expect this season to be a let down in the passing game.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil “The Bartender” Slater rewinds the clock today in another Moments in time piece about the BC Lions.
