Chilliwack, BC – There was a constant lineup of some 100 fans, old and young, snaking through the Chilliwack Mall and into Sports and Stuff for the Annual Football Day.
In the past, the likes of Travis Lulay and Geroy Simon have come to meet and greet the fans, sign autographs and chat with the young football fans who one day, have aspirations to make it into the CFL or NFL.
Solomon Elimimian and Adam Bighill were in the spotlight this year. Adam was all smile as usual, but it did pain Soloman (Solly as he has been dubbed by sports media) to answer questions about his health.
“Solly how are you feeling?” All he good do was muster a painful grimace on his face for FVN and say “Good.” . His eyes said it all. Out for the rest of the season with an Achilles injury, he loved meeting the fans but obviously wished he could be on the field.
