Connor Halliday is a Coug. So is former WSU linebacker Jeremiah Allison. Vernon Adams is an Eagle... And a Duck. Halliday and Adams used to be two of the best quarterbacks in the state of Washington and now, as of last week, they're both on the same roster in the CFL with the Montreal Alouettes.
As it turns out, Connor signed just in time to watch one of Vernon's former teams take on his former team, when Oregon took on Washington State on Saturday. As you probably know by now, the Cougs came out on top in that meeting... and so did Jeremiah Allison in a friendly little wager. Halliday happened to be the closest Coug for the payout.
Vernon looks pretty good in that crimson and grey (gray?)...
Montreal is in action again on Monday when the Alouettes met Edmonton. Vernon Adams is listed as the team's second string quarterback, while Connor is on the practice squad for now.
