Tre Ford continues his impressive streak in the CFL.
Ford will participate in the CFL’s Quarterback Internship Program for the second year straight. His hosts this time will be Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The CFL Quarterback Internship was initiated in 2010 and since then its participation was mandated for all the teams in the CFL.
The program provides an ideal platform for the budding quarterbacks of Canada to hone skills such as positional awareness and vision. Simultaneously the quarterbacks also participate in practice drills and team meetings.
Ford had prodigious performances in the 2018 season and has penchant for racking up unbelievable statistics. He is leading U Sports in touchdown passes (27), and is leading the OUA in both passing yards (2,822) and completion percentage (74.1%). He also has the fewest interceptions among all qualified passers (two). He disproved his status as a single-dimensional athlete by rushing for 641 yards. This record-breaking season has let Ford stake his claim as the best quarterback in CFL.
Not only was Ford busy shattering OUA records, but he also crushed various school records. He broke the record of most passing yards in a single twice in 2018: once against win over Windsor and then, in one of the most clutch performances of the season, against Laurier.
Ford was also recognized for his feats: he bagged the 2018 OUA’s MVP award and also won the 2019 Totzke Trophy as Waterloo Warriors’ male athlete of the year.
