In order to keep the UB-Canada Trade Balance in place our Neighbors to the north owed UB a Quarterback. See we sent them Drew Willy who is seeing his stock rise in the CFL. Now the Canadians are sending Chris Merchant from St. Andrews College in Aurora, Ontario.
Merchant took place in the The Quarterback University Invitational several months ago wher ehe was considered one of the top performers by QBU coach Donovan Dooley.
