The B.C. Lions have signed three players, including American quarterback Vad Lee, American running back Tavien Feaster, and Canadian offensive lineman Will St. Hubert.
Lee spent two years at Georgia Tech (2012-13) where he completed 46.2 percent of his passes for 2,157 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. He also ran the ball 278 times for 1,057 yards and 17 touchdowns.
The six-foot-one, 213-pound passer transferred to James Madison for his final two years of college where he completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 5,652 yards, 51 touchdowns, and 17 interceptions. He also ran for 1,640 yards and 17 touchdowns while earning the Colonial Athletic Association Offensive Player of the Year award.
The native of Wilson, S.C. dressed for three games as a member of the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 2016, recording one carry for zero yards before being released. He has since spent time with the Columbus Lions of the Indoor Football League, the DC Defenders of the XFL, the Alphas of The Spring League, and the Pittsburgh Maulers of the USFL.
B.C. now has six quarterbacks under contract, including Nathan Rourke, Vernon Adams Jr., Michael O’Connor, Antonio Pipkin, Breylin Smith, and Lee. Rourke is expected to sign in the NFL this off-season, while O’Connor and Pipkin are pending free agents.
Feaster spent the first half of the 2022 season as a member of the Montreal Alouettes, dressing for two regular season games and running for 62 yards on 11 carries. He was released in late August.
The native of Spartanburg, S.C. spent most of the 2021 season on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice roster, though he was promoted to the active roster in November after an injury to starter Chase Edmonds. He has previously had NFL stints with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Detroit Lions, and New York Giants.
The six-foot, 221-pound ball carrier played his first three college seasons at Clemson where he ran for 1,363 yards and 15 touchdowns as part of two national championship teams. Feaster transferred to South Carolina for his senior season and led the Gamecocks with 572 rushing yards.
St. Hubert was named a BCFC all-star in the Canadian Junior Football League this past season as a member of the Prince George Kodiaks. The six-foot-five, 285-pound blocker was previously a member of the GTA Grizzlies and Vancouver Island Raiders.
