WINNIPEG – One of the best Canadians to ever play in the CFL solidified himself in history books Thursday night.
Andrew Harris became Canada's all-time leader in yards from IG Field fights while his bombers hosted the BC Lions. Harris hit a cornerstone in the third quarter of the race.
Forward in Week 10 play, Harris sat 13,304 yards from scrimmage, just 65 yards behind Ben Cahun (13,368) for first place.
Ray Elgard (13,289), Jim Young (10,098) and Norm Quong (9,925) rounded out the top five on the list.
Prior to Thursday's competition, Harris had accumulated 746 yards on the ground and 322 yards through the air in 2019 and scored five touchdowns.
During his nine-year career at CFL, the 32-year-old rushed for 8,404 yards, threw for 4,900 yards from the backfield and scored 76 majors. Five feet 10, 216 pounds is also the only player in CFL history to rush for 4,000+ yards with two different teams (BC and Winnipeg).
