CFL Top Defensive Player Adam Bighill joins Team BC coaching staff

Posted on 2015-12-21 10:04:47

Team BC is pleased to announce that Adam Bighill, the reigning CFL Top Defensive Player, has joined the coaching staff.

Bighill is a three-time CFL All-Star and a one-time Grey Cup champion with the BC Lions. Bighill has been involved in a number of Football BC events lending his time to help at Senior Bowl, BC TOUGH camps, and the Football BC Provincial Conference.

He also recently took part in a Safe Contact instructional video that was created with help from the BC Lions.

Team BC has made a slight adjustment to the coaching assignment from the original announcement.

Jerry Friesen, previously assigned as the linebackers coach for the Grade 8 team, will now fill that role with the U18 team replacing Doug Pauls.

Bighill will assume the role of linebackers coach with the Grade 8 team in the spot previously held by Friesen.

Team BC Grade 8, U16, and U18 will compete at the High Roller International Football Showdown in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 20 to 24, 2016.
