Football players are big men, often with even bigger personalities.

This holds true for the BC Lions who, after their comeback 32-31 playoff win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Sunday, were full of emotion during their post-game speeches.

“I love every single one of y’all, that was a special moment,” linebacker Solomon Elimimian told his teammates.

Several players were on the verge of tears, while receiver Emmuel Arceneaux – who left the game after suffering a concussion – couldn’t contain his emotion.

Check out the video, which features captains Jason Arakgi (special teams), Ryan Phillips (defence), and Travis Lulay (offence) handing out game balls.

The Lions will head to Calgary this week for Sunday’s West Final against the Calgary Stampeders.
