Gaiters hit­ting the turf across the CFL this week

Stanstead Journal - - SUDOKU - Len­noxville Sher­brooke

Ninecur­rent and for­mer mem­bers of the Bishop’s Gaiters foot­ball team hit the field last week as the CFL be­gan its pre­sea­son sched­ule.

Five Gaiters were on the field June 15th, in Cal­gary, as the B.C. Lions took on the Stam­ped­ers. Full­back Tim Cronk joined vet­er­ans Dan McCul­lough, James Yurichuk and Shawn Gore on the Lions ros­ter, while Ju­nior Turner, who was drafted ninth over­all by Cal­gary, also maked his pro de­but. (Run­ning back Ja­mall Lee is still re­cov­er­ing from off­sea­son knee surgery, and is not ex­pected to play.) Fri­day night, June 16th, we saw Mathieu Boulay and Kyle Ex­ume don the Green and White for the Saskatchewan Roughrid­ers as they hosted Ed­mon­ton. Ex­ume was drafted in the sixth round by the Roughrid­ers, while Boulay is on a free-agent try­out.

CFL train­ing camps will con­tinue through this week, with the reg­u­lar sea­son open­ing on June 30 as the Lions visit Mon­treal. Note that par­tic­i­pa­tion in CFL pre­sea­son con­tests does not af­fect a player’s CIS el­i­gi­bil­ity.

The Gaiters will open their 2011 foot­ball sea­son on Fri­day, Septem­ber 2 as they visit the Sher­brooke Vert & Or.
