Jesse coming home?
This is huge news in Edmonton. The Canadian Press has learned that the Edmonton Eskimos are the big winners in the Jesse Lumsden sweepstakes. The former Hec Creighton winner was born here in Edmonton and his dad Neil was a star for the Eskimos. Lumsden is expected to replace running back AJ Harris as the starting tailback. As a former radio commentator at CFRC in Kingston I have vivid and awful memories of Lumdsen. First when he returned a kick for a touchdown on the last play on the game in Kingston during the 2003 season and second when he broke the record for most ever rushing yards in a career - this time in Hamilton, again against Queen's.
