For years offensive lineman Theren Churchill patrolled the trenches for the Edmonton Huskies in the CJFL and was a highly decorated player. He was a Prairie Conference All-Star and won multiple team awards.
Fast forward to 2020 and following three successful seasons with the University of Regina, Churchill heard his name at the CFL Draft. Due to the pandemic the traditional bright lights of the Draft were dimmed but that didn’t stop the excitement. When the Toronto Argonauts were on the clock for the ninth overall pick, the moment came. The Argos took the former Huskie.
Earlier this week Churchill put pen to paper and officially signed a contract with the Argos to begin his path to getting on the turf and BMO Field in Toronto. He talks with Ryan Watters about the contract, draft day and dealing with the pandemic.
