“I am proud to have played my professional football career with the BC Lions,” Gore said.Wally and the entire Lions organization gave me the opportunity to excel on the field as an athlete and off the field as a mentor, husband and father. My family and I thank the entire BC Lions family for a great seven years. My fellow teammates, coaches and fans have made this a truly memorable experience. I give all the glory to god who has blessed me with the opportunity to play football and I am excited about making the transition to the next chapter of my life.”
