He was drafted tenth overall by the Lions in the 2010 CFL Draft, but signed with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League on the day after the draft as a free agent.[1] He played college football for the Bishop's Gaiters, and high school football for the Newtonbrook North Stars.

Gore was released from the Packers on August 28, 2010 without ever playing an NFL regular season game.[2]

BC Lions[edit]

Soon after, on September 5, 2010, it was announced that Gore had signed with the BC Lions.[3] After a strong performance in the Lions' 2011 training camp, Gore earned a starting position on offence as a receiver.

On January 13, 2013, after trying out for three NFL teams it was announced that Gore decided to re-sign with the Lions under a three-year deal.[4]
