The BC Lions Football Club today announced that international quarterback Keith Price has signed with the team.
Price spent the better part of the past two years with the Saskatchewan Roughriders after signing in Regina in September 2014 and returning to the club in July 2015. The former University of Washington Husky standout who set school marks for completion percentage (64%) and career touchdowns (75), appeared in 17 career games for the Green and White throwing for 407 yards on 32 completions with three majors. In total, Price owns 11 career or season passing records for the Huskies.
“Keith is a very athletic quarterback,” offensive coordinator Khari Jones says. “On top of his athletic ability and football smarts, we feel having him on our roster puts us at the top of the league in terms of QB depth heading into camp.”
Before signing in Saskatchewan, the Compton, California native attended Seattle Seahawks mini-camp in 2014, but was released after the Seahawks brought in Terrelle Pryor.
