Football: T-Birds' Kruger placed on Stampeders practice roster

Via the Calgary Herald:
"To the practice roster, the Stamps added R Blaine Kruger, a 23-year-old from Cochrane.

"Kruger had been preparing to return to UBC for his sophomore year when (coach John) Hufnagel offered him a gig.

"The top junior receiver in the country in 2007, he was a Canada West conference all-star last year."
Kruger was third in Can West with 491 yards on 36 receptions last season. He gained almost twice as many yards as UBC's next most prolific receiver, Jordan Grieve (248 on 20 catches). Suffice to say, while UBC is presumably happy for Kruger to get an opportunity to impress the Stampeders in person. There is always a chance a player could return after being put on a practice roster, too.

  1. Fourth non-graduating senior taken from the UBC roster with one making the real team and now two on practice rosters. Great exposure for UBC but hurts their 09-10 roster (and they were only 2-6 last year as it was).
