Als Sign New Canadian Football League QB

Brad Roach has finally found a home.

Roach, who was an all-American quarterback at Catawba College, signed Friday to play with the Montreal Alouettes, who went 12-8 and finished as the Grey Cup runners-up this year.

“I think it’s a great opportunity,” said Roach, a former star at Williamston High School.

“I know a lot of people who had a lot of success making a living in the Canadian Football League.” The 6-6, 250-pound quarterback, who is currently living in Concord and working out with some of his former Catawba teammates, signed a two-year contract with the Alouettes, who fell 22-14 to the Calgary Stampeders in the 96th Grey Cup. There is an optional third-year on the contract.
