PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – Two-time Grey Cup Champion Keon Raymond has been named Director of Football Operations for the Kodiaks Football Club.

In his new role, Raymond will oversee the development, execution, and growth of the Kodiaks football programs across the northern region. The move is a commitment by the Kodiaks to enhance and grow the game of football in all northern British Columbia communities.

Raymond brings a wealth of experience at all levels, and he’s a proven champion. In his playing career, Raymond has played in the Canadian Football League, National Football League, and Arena Football League.

Raymond was signed by the Tennessee Titans of the NFL in 2006, and he played college football at Middle Tennessee State.

Playing defensive back for the Calgary Stampeders, he won Grey Cups in 2008 and 2014 and was a CFL West All-Star in 2011 and 2012. Raymond also spent time with the Toronto Argonauts.
