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 Eskimos.

College career

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.
