Moe Elewonibi

For a guy who loved soccer and didn't play football until age 15, Mohammed Elewonibi made quite a career for himself. A soccer goalie at Vic High, "Moe" joined the Saanich Vampires midget football team in Grade 10 and helped them win a provincial title in his second year. After that, he quickly climbed the football ladder with a stellar junior career in Victoria and Kelowna. He ultimately landed at Brigham Young University. As a senior he contributed to their 10 wins 2 loss season and then won the Outland Trophy as U.S. college football's outstanding offensive lineman. Drafted by Washington of the NFL and the CFL's B.C. Lions in 1990, he endured the low of being injured when the Redskins won the 1991 Super Bowl, and the high of helping the Lions win the West in 1998 and being named a CFL all-star. Playing a position where athletes rarely last 10 years, Moe ended his career with the B.C. Lions at age 40.
