With the 3rd overall pick in the 2010 CFL Canadian Draft, the Toronto Argonauts announced that they have selected LB Cory Greenwood from Concordia. A three-year starter, Greenwood’s athleticism, intensity and toughness earned him the Presidents’ Trophy in 2009 as best defensive player in the CIS. The 3-time QUFL All-Star also led the league in tackles in 2009 with 62.
Greenwood remarked, “It’s such a relief to finally know where I’m going to start and hopefully finish my professional career. It’s been a long process and I’ve played my heart out, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. Growing up in Kingston, I’ve followed the Argos and especially the career of Mike O’Shea. I can’t wait to work with him and the rest of the Toronto coaching staff. I’ve been in intensive training for a month now and plan to keep up that level of intensity going into training camp and the season. I feel so lucky and privileged to be a part of the Argonauts organization and thank them for the opportunity to play in the CFL wearing the Double Blue!”
