" '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.'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.
"... 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."
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.
