B.C. Lions extend contract of former Redblacks quarterback Will Arndt

The B.C. Lions have signed quarterback Will Arndt to a contract extension for the 2021 season.

Arndt was eligible to become a free agent in February. He originally joined the Lions in 2020 following a stint with the Ottawa Redblacks where he completed 103-of-165 passes for 940 yards with three touchdowns and six interceptions after being named the starter for the final four games of 2019, all losses. 

“Will is a player with tremendous upside,” Lions co-GM and head coach Rick Campbell said in a statement.

“Having seen his development from the time he came to Ottawa, he is only going to get better as he gains more experience.”

The 27-year old set multiple program records in his four years at Western Connecticut State University including career passing yards (7,940), total offence (9,248 yards), and passing touchdowns for a career (73).
