Football: U of R's Lukomski tries football on for size

Jeff Lukomski, who was the Regina Cougars' leading men's basketball scorer (16.1 points per game) last season, is going to try his hand at playing for the football team. He's trying out for the Rams as either defensive back or a receiver.
" 'I knew four years ago that I wasn't ready, physically or academically, to play both,' Lukomski said Wednesday following a media conference at the Rams' clubhouse. 'Now I'm a little bit older, my GPA is a little more settled and my body size is better for football, so I thought I'd give it a try.'

"... Since the end of the (basketball) Cougars' campaign, he has been watching his diet and working out with his best friend, Rams running back Graham Mosiondz. As a result, Lukomski has gone from 175 pounds to 193."
The U of R also has an incoming frosh, Jared Janotta (great sports name!), who's planning to double up in basketball and football. Regina receiver coach Chris Warnecke did it a decade ago.

Western guard/wide receiver Jason Milliquet, of course, almost played in the Vanier Cup and the Final 8 championship game last season. It's also understandable that a fifth-year athlete would figure its now or never. McGill slotback Erik Galas and Queen's tight end Scott Stinson each took up hoops after completing their football eligibility last fall.
