CHARLESTON, SC - Charleston Southern University football player Dounia Whitehouse will get his chance to play professional football in the Canadian Football League after being drafted by the Edmonton Eskimos in the third-round of the CFL amateur draft.
Whitehouse, a 6-1 205-pound defensive back, was the second pick of the third round and the 20th selection overall in the nine-team draft. Whitehouse, a native of Chad, grew up in British Columbia, before attending Butte Junior College. He played for Charleston Southern during the 2001 and 2002 seasons as a cornerback, finishing his career with five interceptions.
Whitehouse becomes the second player in CSU history to be drafted by a professional football team. Former CSU offensive lineman Shawn Gifford was chosen in the 2000 CFL draft.
