A Canadian Football League quarterback might have his life change overnight if can make his way to the big leagues in the United States.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, quarterback Nathan Rourke will work out for NFL teams this week after his BC Lions got eliminated from the CFL playoffs.
The 24-year-old is coming off a sensational season in the CFL during which he completed 78.7 percent of his pass attempts for 3,349 yards, 25 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. He also ran the ball 39 times for 304 yards and seven scores.
Rourke went 8-1 as a starter before undergoing surgery in August to repair a Lisfranc sprain in his foot.
Before Canada, Rourke was a three-year starter at Ohio University from 2017-2019 where he threw for 7,457 yards, 60 touchdowns, and 20 interceptions.
If things go well, the 24-year-old could see himself on an NFL team’s roster with the possibility that he might get a chance to show what he’s got.
