Montreal, January 9, 2013 - The Montreal Alouettes announced on Wednesday the signing of non-import kicker William Dion to a three-year contract.

Dion (5'11'', 210 lbs.) played five seasons with the Sherbrooke University Vert et Or from 2008 to 2012, where he set a new CIS record for most career field goals with 82.

Last season, the 25-year-old from Drummondville, QC became the all-time CIS leader when he split the uprights for a 72nd time on October 6 in a win over the Concordia Stingers, one more than the mark set by the Calgary Dinos'  Aaron Ifield in 2010.

"We have been impressed with William as he has continued to raise his level to one that is deserving of a chance to compete in a CFL training camp," said Alouettes General Manager Jim Popp.
