B.C. Lions' defensive back Lavar Glover is an ex-Cincinnati Bengal who played for two Arena Football League teams in 2004 before joining the Lions in 2006.

24 hours: After the NFL and AFL, you're now in the CFL. Talk about the transition.

#27 Lavar Glover: "I was happy to be back outdoors. Arena is a different game playing seven-on-seven on a shorter field. It was football, but it wasn't real football."

24: What's the feeling like in the Lions' dressing room?

#27: "If we have a couple days off, Geroy Simon or Aaron Hunt will come in and say I couldn't wait to get back to work because I missed y'all. We've got a bunch of characters; it's full of fun and full of life. I've never felt this good on the football field, I feel like I'm in my prime."

24: Before games you walk the field, imagining a big play. Did you walk around twice before last Saturday's game? You had a pair of big interceptions.

#27: "It's funny you ask, I actually stayed out on the field longer than I usually do. I go out there for a few minutes and get a nice warmup, but for some reason it was a little chilly in the dome and I stayed out."

24: You spend the off-season working with troubled youth in Northern Kentucky.

#27: "When you're dealing with kids who've been through so much, they need somebody in their corner. I want to start my own independent-living program for teens, helping them with life skills to adapt to living on their own."
