Bombers Sign Winnipegger Jordan Reaves

WINNIPEG, MB., April 9, 2015 –The Winnipeg Blue Bombers announce today the club has added Winnipeg native, and National receiver Jordan Reaves.

Reaves (6-5, 220, Brandon University, January 25, 1990, in Winnipeg, Manitoba) starred in basketball at Brandon University from 2009-2014, before spending two months in Slovenia and France attempting to play the sport at the professional level. Reaves, the son of Bomber legend Willard Reaves, played football prior to his move to basketball, and worked out for the Bombers a few weeks ago in Winnipeg, and then attended the Edmonton Regional Combine afterwards. 

“We’ve seen him work twice now, once here and once in Edmonton, and he’s a tremendous athlete,” said Bombers General Manager Kyle Walters. “All of his quantifiable qualities were really remarkable, and he did not look out of place even with his limited football background. He’s a very intriguing prospect for the future.”
