2016: David appeared in 16 games as well as both playoff games and was a key contributor to a productive Lions’ defensive line which finished in a tie for the most sacks in the CFL. He recorded seven defensive tackles along with two sacks and a tackle for a loss and continued to give the Lions consistent performances both as a starter and package player.

Personal:
David was born in Chicoutimi, Quebec and didn’t learn English until he was 12, but has quickly developed into a good quote among his fellow francophone teammates. The West Coast newbie has taken full advantage of his surroundings, enjoying plenty of hiking and visits to nearby microbreweries. In his down-time, he likes to relax and scan the offerings on Netflix.
