ARGOS
Jim Barker hasn’t soured on his group of quarterback prospects, led by newcomer Cleo Lemon.

The Argos’ new head coach announced that Lemon will start when the club kicks off its regular season July 1 in Calgary.

“Cleo Lemon from day one has shown us the leadership skills so he is the guy that we are going into Calgary with as our starting quarterback,” Barker said.

“He gives us someone who is a great leader; he is a guy with very good mobility and is still learning the game.”
