On Friday, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers (CFL) announced the signing of University of South Dakota star quarterback Chris Streveler.

Streveler was a two-year starter for the Coyotes football program, coming to Vermillion from the University of Minnesota.

During his two seasons as the USD signal caller, Streveler threw for over 6,000 yards and 54 touchdowns. He also ran for over 1,500 yards and had 20 rushing touchdowns. Streveler was named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Player of the Year in 2017, and was also a Walter Payton Award finalist.

According to a press release from the University of South Dakota, Streveler received a few NFL mini-camp invites, but ultimately decided to go to the CFL instead.

He is scheduled to report to Winnipeg and join the team on May 15.
