Elks sign local product Mark Korte

Homegrown product Mark Korte is back in Edmonton after spending the first three seasons of his professional career with the Ottawa Redblacks.

Originally drafted by Ottawa fourth overall in the 2018 CFL Draft, the University of Alberta Golden Bears standout returns to Edmonton with 48 career CFL regular season games under his belt.

Over four seasons as a Golden Bear (2014-17), Korte evolved into one of the nation’s top lineman. He was Canada West’s Most Outstanding Lineman in 2017, and helped pave the way for running back Ed Ilnicki to set a Canada West conference single-season record for rushing yards (1,468) and earn the Hec Crighton Trophy as the nation’s top university player.
