Default Record setting NCAA QB goes from espys to the CFL

Graham Harrell from the Texas Tech Red raiders has finally arrived in Regina to play for the Roughriders. Harrell holds the record for most touchdown passes by an NCAA QB with 134. Even though he was the first qb to throw for over 5000 yards two seasons in a row, was fourth in the heisman race, and won the Johnny Unitas golden arm award as the top senior qb in college ball, he still went undrafted in the NFL. He attended a Cleveland browns mini camp and entertained offers from the UFL. I'm happy to say he chose the CFL and Rider Pride!! He's now the fifth qb in the riders stable. Although it's highly unusual for a CFL team to have 4 qbs, much less 5, on a Roster, the riders are looking at keeping all of them. Look for Harrell to quickly move up the depth chart to no. 3 by the labour day classic against the bombers. His size and skill might not have been enough for the NFL, but it is well suited for a pass heavy CFL game.

What is the CFL???

Remember Charlie Ward won the Heisman and then didn't even get drafted in the NFL ... he did go on to play in the NBA and make a few mill though
