Angus Reid re-signs with B.C. Lions

Angus Reid has signed a contract extension with the B.C. Lions.

The Richmond native is entering Reid his 13th CFL season in 2013 after reaching the 200-game mark (197 with B.C.) last year. The Simon Fraser University grad and Lions centre earned his third West Division All-Star berth as part of an offensive line that surrendered a league-low 30 sacks in 2012.

“Having Angus back in 2013 is very good news for our club,” said vice president of football operations and GM Wally Buono. “His experience and durability are just two of the many qualities that make him a leader on and off the field and a vital veteran presence on our offensive line.”

“After careful consideration following last season, I believe there is still some very good football left in me,” said Reid. “I am as excited as ever at the prospect of competing for a championship and I believe we have everything in place to do that next season.”
