Former Elon QB Riddle signs in CFL

Former Elon quarterback Scott Riddle, the Southern Conference's all-time passing yardage leader, has signed a professional contract with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

Riddle led the SoCon in passing yardage in all four of his seasons from 2007-10 and graduated as the holder of 41 NCAA, SoCon or Elon records. His 13,264 passing yards are the fifth-highest total by an FCS quarterback.

Two members of this past year's Elon senior class, offensive lineman Rodney Austin and linebacker Joshua Jones, recently inked NFL contracts with the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars, respectively.
