St. Vincent to the Lions

Jevon Cottoy’s unorthodox path to pro football isn’t unlike many others. But considering where he came from, it’s hard to not marvel at the fact he’s made it this far. The big wide receiver moved with his Dad to Calgary from the Caribbean island of St. Vincent when he was nine years old. At the urging of his uncle, he eventually took up the North American version of football in Peewee.

“I didn’t know about the game until 2008 or 2009 I started watching Randy Moss highlights,” recalled the Lions’ new addition.
