Henry Bekkering sure is getting some mileage out of his bid to make the CFL's Calgary Stampeders as a monster slotback. The above story in the Calgary Sun joked about the Stamps trying to hang on a nickname on high-leaping Hank -- Calgary quarterback Henry Burris suggested calling him "YouTube."
I'll straight-up admit I don't know how CFL personnel people put together a roster, especially with the import ratio. The other Canadian receivers in the Stamps' camp are veteran Ryan Thelwell, Brett Ralph, who's also a contributor on special teams, and former McGill star Greg Hetherington, who saw limited action as a rookie last season. Hetherington, by process of elimination, might be the one Bekkering's competing with for a job. The Stamps could try to compromise by keeping Bekkering as a practice squadder.
Still, it's a helluva story.
