Sure, Adarius Bowman could state the best of his 9,491 receiving yards on his way to leading the Canadian Football League twice in his renowned 11-year career.

But in the end, the 8.68 km his data include up to is no place near the sum of their parts when it comes to his experiences playing professional football in Canada.

” I’m telling you today, I am thrilled and humbled and happy that I made the list, however if I didn’t make the list, I’m still grateful due to the fact that I’m still a part of it,” the three-time CFL all-star said from his Chappelle-area home in his adopted city where he played 7 prime seasons with the Edmonton Football Team, culminating in the 2015 Grey Cup. “Whether you make it or not, I’m glad that I got to belong of it.”
