Edward Hervey (born May 4, 1973) is a retired Canadian football wide receiver who played for the Edmonton Eskimos of the Canadian Football League (CFL), and currently serves as the general manager for the Edmonton Eskimos.

College career[edit]

Hervey attended Compton High School before moving on to Pasadena City College, where he played as a quarterback. He became a starter in 1992, registering 919 passing yards and 791 rushing yards, on his way to a 10-1 record.

He transferred to the University of Southern California and was converted to wide receiver. He was named a starter as a junior, but recorded only 22 receptions for 219 yards, after suffering a sprained left ankle that forced him to miss two games and would slow him the rest of the season. As a senior he suffered a strained knee in the opening game of the season and would only play in 8 games, finishing his college career with 41 receptions for 482 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Although he was an All-American in the 200 meters in track and field and was considered the Trojans' fastest player, his play was limited because of injuries.[1] He was also overshadowed by All-Americans Johnnie Morton and Keyshawn Johnson.

Edmonton Eskimos (CFL)[edit]

Over the course of his career Hervey put up 6715 yards receiving with 476 receptions in 118 career CFL games. His best season stats-wise came in 2001 when he put up 1447 yards on 77 catches with 12 touchdowns. He also was a part of two Grey Cup winning teams. In 2006, he received the David Boone Memorial Award in recognition for his contributions to the community.
