    BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell's Brian Hudson has signed a contract with the Canadian Football League's Calgary Stampeders.

    The quarterback from Stafford, Va. played his lone season at Campbell in 2013 after transferring from Liberty. Hudson set Campbell single-season records for rushing yards, rushing attempts, pass completions, passing yards, passing touchdowns, passing yards per game, total offense and all-purpose yards, earning Honorable Mention All-PFL accolades.

    Hudson ranked sixth in the PFL in rushing and total offense, setting a school for rushing yards by a quarterback with 168 against Morehead State, and posting Campbell's longest run from scrimmage, 80 yards, against Jacksonville. The PFL Academic Honor Roll member also recorded 340 yards passing against Marist and 33 completions against Mercer, both school records.

    Calgary kicks off the 2014 season June 28, hosting Montreal. The first of two preseason games will be played on June 14 against Winnipeg.

    The Stampeders finished the 2013 regular season 14-4, winning the CFL's West Division title before falling 35-13 to Saskatchewan in the playoffs. Calgary is a six-time Grey Cup Champion, last taking the title in 2008.
    Hudson is Campbell's second professional football player, following Daniel Polk, who played for the Stuttgart Scorpions in Germany in 2011.

    The Camels went 3-9 overall in 2013, finishing the year with a 47-14 win at Davidson. Campbell set 21 team offensive records in Minter's first season, including rushing yards (2,800), passing yards (2,436), and total offense (5,236), four defensive, including sacks (27), and three on special teams.

    Senior Kurt Odom was named First Team All-PFL while seven Camels took home honorable mention nods. Odom, along with Adam Lutz, Ben Bolling and Hunter Somerville were also First Team Academic All-PFL. Michael Rudisill and Lucas Smith both earned Second Team honors.

    The Camels will open the 2014 season at home on Thursday night, August 28 in Buies Creek against Charlotte.

    After watching the video, it appears that Brian has nice "touch" on the football, and a solid arm. Although he doesn't appear to be the most elusive QB, he can run effectively.

    I saw him at another team's tryout. Good arm, accurate, nice touch on the long ball but a solid pocket passer. He won't scramble for the corner very often.

    Monz sounds good as well. McPherson looks like he will not participate too soon if they had to put him on the retired list.
