With Buck Pierce, Steven Jyles and Alex Brink all out of the equation nursing injuries, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers added an import QB to the roster on Monday.
Frank Wilczynski comes to the Bombers after playing in the college football circuit, including receiver for the University of Delaware before transferring to Rowan University.
The New Jersey native completed 117 passes on 207 attempts during his senior year, which led Rowan with 1,456 passing yards and 11 touchdowns.
The 6’1″, 190 lb Wilczynski was also the school’s top rusher racking up 793 yards and 15 touchdowns on 91 carries. He currently holds the school records for career rushing yards by a quarterback with 1,596 yards on 207 rushes and most rushing touchdowns in a season with 15.
He was also the first team selection of the New Jersey Athletic Conference All-Conference.
The Bombers head back on the practice field Tuesday, where they’ll prepare for the Edmonton Eskimos on the road Saturday.
