Adam Bighill (born October 16, 1988 in Montesano, Washington) is a Canadian football linebacker for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League. Bighill signed as a free agent with the Lions on May 31, 2011.[1] He played college football for the Central Washington Wildcats.

Professional career[edit]

BC Lions[edit]

Bighill had an impressive rookie season, playing an increased role as the season progressed. He played in 12 games, including the final seven regular season games, and the West Final and Grey Cup games. He led the club, and was ranked fourth overall in the CFL, with 22 special team tackles.[2]

Bighill began the 2012 CFL season by replacing Solomon Elimimian at middle linebacker for the Lions, after Elimimian was signed by the Minnesota Vikings.[3] After assuming the starting linebacker role Bighill went on to amass 104 tackles (2nd most in the CFL) and 4 interceptions. Elimimian returned to the Lions mid-way through the season, however Bighill retained much of the playing time. He was named both a CFL West All-Star and a CFL All-Star for the 2012 season.

Bighill and Elimimian both returned to the Lions linebacker core for the 2013 CFL season. Bighill suffered a sprained ankle and missed Week 3 and 4.[4]
