Coronavirus hits close to home for former CFL quarterback Kevin Glenn

Former Canadian Football League quarterback Kevin Glenn has had a family member come down with the coronavirus.

Glenn Tweeted about COVID-19 on Tuesday night and followed it up with another warning about the realities of the virus on Wednesday.

The 40-year-old retired from the CFL prior to the 2019 season after backing up Mike Reilly with the Edmonton Eskimos in 2018 when he didn’t see any game action. Glenn’s last season actually playing came in 2017.

He started 17 games for the Riders, throwing for 4,038 yards, 25 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. Saskatchewan went 10-8 that year earning a playoff spot as the crossover team. The green and white came within a third-and-15 Ricky Ray to James Wilder Jr. conversion of going to the Grey Cup.

Glenn played 18 CFL seasons making 208 career starts. He was been a member of all nine CFL teams, suiting up for seven of them. Over his career, Glenn has totalled 52,867 passing yards, 294 touchdowns and 207 interceptions with a 63.2 completion percentage.

After nearly two decades playing in the league, Glenn was courted as a possible coach, however he chose to stay home and take a job with Detroit Catholic Central High School as the first admissions community outreach manager in school history.

Just as if Glenn was communicating as a quarterback and leader, he wants to warn the people about the dangers of the virus.
