Langley Rams defensive back Jordan Linnen – who played with the junior football team the last two seasons when it was based in South Surrey – is getting a shot at the CFL.

The defensive back, who also returned kicks for the Rams, was invited to attend the B.C. Lions’ rookie camp, to be held June 1-4 in Kamloops.

Linnen will attend the camp as a “territorial junior exception” and if he impresses team brass, could earn an invite to main camp the following week.

Through the years, a number of Rams have been given shots with the Lions, including wide receivers Josh Boden and Ben Wilson and recently traded kicker Sean Whyte.

Current Lions kicker, Paul McCallum, is also a former Ram.
