'Stefan LeFors is our starting quarterback': Bomber coach

  • Print

WINNIPEG — The waiting is over for Stefan LeFors and the fans of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The 28-year-old lefty is their starting quarterback.

"Stefan is our starting quarterback. He'll start against Montreal next week and he'll get more reps. He'll get more reps going forward. He's our starting quarterback and will start the season for us. I'm saying it now for all to hear, Stefan LeFors is our starting quarterback," said Bombers coach Mike Kelly as he addressed the media early on Thursday afternoon.

LeFors worked for one quarter in last night's preseason game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a 32-22 win for Winnipeg, and Kelly saw all he needed to see as the third-year-pro put 19 points on the board and went 5 of 8 passing for 98 yards.

"I've known this for a while," said Kelly. "He did a good job last night and did the things I expected him to do."
