Even in self-isolation, Chris Streveler is still lit and willing to celebrate Winnipeg’s Grey Cup victory.

While on Instagram Live, Streveler was chugging beers with viewers on Wednesday afternoon.

And doing shots with his grandma.

Streveler was guzzling brown pops during the CFL championship parade in the Manitoba capital and he has kept it up. The former Bombers’ pivot has become a social media sensation since the team captured the title.

The 24-year-old Streveler threw for 2,698 yards in two seasons with the Bombers along with 19 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,167 yards and 22 touchdowns averaging 5.7 yards per carry.

Streveler was especially effective for Winnipeg during the 2019 CFL championship run in the post-season. He rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown in the West Semi-Final in Calgary and threw a touchdown pass to Andrew Harris in the Grey Cup.

The Arizona Cardinals saw potential in Streveler and signed him to a contract. The University of South Dakota product has drawn comparisons to New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Taysom Hill as an explosive athlete.

Away from the football field, Streveler continues to be as entertaining as his performances between the white lines.
