Former WVU Quarterback Jarret Doege started his first career CFL game for the Edmonton Elks on Friday night.
CANADA – Several WVU fans were tuned-in to the CFL contest between the Edmonton Elks and the Ottawa Redblacks on Friday night to root on a former Mountaineer.
Jarret Doege, West Virginia’s starting quarterback from 2019 to 2021, started his first career game for the Elks tonight. Despite showing flashes the week before, the Lubbock, Texas native unfortunately struggled to get things going in a 26-7 loss for Edmonton.
