Lions Land Long-Awaited O-Lineman Brett Boyko
ancouver) The BC Lions Football Club today announced that offensive lineman Brett Boyko has agreed to a two-year (plus option) contract with the team.
Boyko (6'6", 300) was the Lions' second-round selection (14th overall) in the 2015 CFL Draft. A native of Saskatoon, the UNLV grad has spent time with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers along with the San Diego Fleet of the now-defunct AAF.
"Good things come to those who wait and Brett has very definitely been worth the wait," said GM Ed Hervey. "If he had been in this year's draft, there isn't a team that wouldn't have taken him first overall, so we're very happy to be adding him in time for camp and even more pleased that he has committed to this length of contract."
BC Lions season tickets for 2019 start at just $29.90 per seat. Single game tickets for all home games are also on sale now. Click here to view the 2019 schedule.
BC Lions Training Camp presented by Sun Peaks Resort kicks off in Kamloops on Sunday, May 19.
