New, 2 comments

In 2011 Dillon Guy came from Canada to the US so he could play NCAA football. He committed to UB head coach Jeff Quinn and a Buffalo program which was a short drive from his native Hamilton. After a college career of making holes for running backs in Buffalo Dillon Guy is going back to Canada as a professional football player.

Guy was taken by the BC Lions as the 4th pick in the 4th round of the draft, making him the 30th player picked overall.

The Lions played their first season in 1954, and have played every season since. They are the oldest professional sports franchise in the city of Vancouver and in the province of British Columbia. They have appeared in the league's Grey Cup championship game 10 times, winning six of those games, with their most recent championship occurring in 2011.

The last Bull to play for BC was Ernest Jackson who spent several years with the club before being traded to Ottawa.

Guy was an instant hit or Buffalo working his way into 11 games as a true freshman, starting six. He helped clear the way for the Sand Diego Charger's Branden Oliver as he set a program-record  with 1,395 yards rushing and 13 rushing touchdowns.

In UB's 2013 bowl season Guy saw action in 12 games, making five starts.

Guy missed 2014 with a Knee injury which game some CFL teams the jitters but he came back strong in 2015. Playing in eight games. His eight games played in 2015 and a strong showing at the Canadian combine put him back on some radars but it was a deep year on the line and many CFL teams picked NFL "futures" players. That pushed Dillon Guy out of the first two rounds.

The CFL preseason kicks off in June and the BC Lions first preseason game is June 11th.
