Black shows no hard feel­ings

Ottawa Sun - - SPORTS - — Frank Zicarelli

There’s no bet­ter pro than Ar­gos’ Matt Black, no one more de­serv­ing of the spot­light.

Black was re­leased ear­lier this sea­son, but asked back when an in­jury to Jer­maine Gabriel forced Toronto’s hands.

On Saturday at BMO Field, with the Eski­mos threat­en­ing to send the game into OT, Black came on a well-timed blitz from the sec­ondary to sack Mike Reilly on third down and force a fum­ble.

“I couldn’t be prouder of Matt from start to fin­ish,’’ said coach Marc Trest­man. “The day we let him go, he han­dled him­self with class and dig­nity. He bought the guys break­fast the morn­ing he got cut and he’s come back here and done noth­ing but lead the way.”
