Career

2015: Montreal Alouettes

Klassen kept progressing as a defensive tackle in his third season with the Alouettes, cumulating 22 tackles and three sacks in seventeen games, four of which as a starter. An injury prevented him from playing the last game of the season against the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

 

2014: Montreal Alouettes

Klassen was off to a great start in his second professional campaign. In 12 regular season games, he recorded 13 defensive tackles, including three sacks as well as three knockdowns. The young defensive tackle saw his season end abruptly after an ankle injury preventing him from playing in both playoff games.

 

2013: Montreal Alouettes

Klassen, who made an impressive ascendancy to the pro ranks, was featured in the rotation on the Alouettes’ defensive line. He recorded his first career CFL sack in his first home-regular season tilt at Percival Molson Stadium. He had his best game of the season recording three defensive tackles against Edmonton on July 25.

 

Personal

He was the third Calgary Dino the Alouettes drafted in May 2012. He led the Dinos with 5.5 sacks in his last season in the CIS and picked up his first career interception Week 3 against the University of Manitoba. He put on an impressive performance during the regional combine in Edmonton in 2012 and received an invitation to participate in the NFL combine.
