The B.C. Lions will add two more names to the team’s vaunted wall of fame at B.C. Place Stadium on Saturday night.

Jamie Taras, who played 16 seasons (1987–2002) with the Lions at fullback and offensive lineman, and Eric Carter, a cornerback who starred for five seasons with the Lions (1999-2003), will be inducted at halftime during the Lions’ home opener against the Montreal Alouettes (7 p.m., TSN).

Tarras, a two-time CFL all-star, played as fullback for his first four seasons with the Lions before bulking up and making the move to the offensive line where he became a team stalwart at guard and, later, centre.
