Edinboro Alum Gets Ready For Grey Cup Return

OTTAWA, ON. – Trevor Harris, fresh off of a Canadian Football League (CFL) playoff-record six passing touchdown performance, will start again at quarterback for the Ottawa Redblacks as they will compete against the Calgary Stampeders.
Harris, an Edinboro (Pa.) University alum, led Ottawa to a 46-27 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the East Finals to advance to the Grey Cup. In the game, Harris completed 29-32 passes, for 367 yards, and the six touchdowns.
Harris, a Waldo, Ohio, native, passed for 11,899 yards, and 100 touchdowns in his college career.
After not being chosen in the 2010 NFL Draft, Harris signed as an undrafted free-agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Harris failed to crack the final roster and was waived after the preseason.
Harris bounced around in 2011. Harris began the year with the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League (IFL.) During his time with the Rattlers, Harris passed for 272 yards, and seven touchdowns. Harris also hooked on with the Hartford Colonials, and the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the defunct United Football League (UFL.) Harris was also with the Buffalo Bills. Harris also was on the Orlando Predators roster in the Arena Football League (AFL.)
Harris’s CFL career began in 2012, signing with the Toronto Argonauts. In his first three seasons with the Argos, Harris was the back-up to Ricky Ray.

The Redblacks signed Harris as a free-agent in 2016. Harris started his tenure in Ottawa as the back-up to Henry Burris. Burris fell injured during the opening game of 2016 and Harris finished that game off and would end up starting 12 games before suffering a bruised shoulder. Harris finished the season with 3,301 yards, and 16 touchdowns passing. The Redblacks would win their first ever Grey Cup that season.
In 2017, the Redblacks slipped to an 8-9-1 record, but they still made it to the East Semi-Final, losing to the Saskatchewan Roughriders, 31-20. Harris finished the 2017 season passing for 4,679 yards, and 30 touchdowns.
This season, the Redblacks improved to an 11-7 record. Harris passed for a career high 5,116 yards, and 22 touchdowns.
