An interview
Source: Ottawa Citizen

Chris enjoyed an 11 year career in the CFL playing for Saskatchewan, Ottawa, Calgary and Hamilton. Although born in Conneticut, he grew up in BC and started playing football at a young age. He participated in other sports growing up including ski racing, but football was his passion. Later he went to Shasta College before going to play and attend Portland State University. He had a great career there garnering All-American honors. There was some NFL interest for him but he ultimately went to play for the Saskatchewan Roughriders after being their selection, 2nd overall in the draft. He was a CFL all-star in 1999 and 2000 and won the ultimate prize, the Grey Cup, in that 1999 season with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He did some broadcasting near the end of his career but always had Real Estate in the back of his mind as the career he wanted to pursue. He is now doing both, working at a Realtor in Vancouver with Engel & Volkers as well BC Lions and Seattle Seahawks pre and post game broadcasts. Check out the links below for more information.
