Morning rounds ...

  • Laval coach Glen Constantin is always wantin' more, especially from his defensive line. There is still healthy competition for spots. (Le Soleil)

  • Calgary Stampeders linebacker coach Mark Kilam, who got his start with the Alberta Golden Bears, is a rising star in the CFL coaching ranks. (Calgary Herald)

  • B.C. Lions long snapper Dan McCullough (Bishop's) is having his jersey retired by his alma mater, Fredericton High School. (Daily Gleaner)

  • Concordia's star linebacker, Cory Greenwood, the top CFL draft prospect, took a circuitous route to football stardom. Fun fact supplied by Sun Media's Mike Koreen: Greenwood and Saskatchewan Roughriders wideout Rob Bagg (Queen's) were minor hockey teammates in Kingston! (Kingston Whig-Standard)
  • Mark Wacyk gives a survey of Sudbury's Laurentian Voyageurs, who were seventh in the OUA East last season but are seeing signs of progress under Shawn Swords, the former Canadian Olympian. Veteran Matas Tirilis is a low-post lynchpin at 6-foot-6, while sophomore Andrew Lalonde might be pencilled in at point guard. Two transfers with a good basketball pedigree, guard Isiah Pasquale and forward Jamie Campbell, could be in the starting lineup. (
  • The Nipissing Lakers have awarded their letters: Matt Lahey is wearing the captain's C with Brodie Beard, John Quarrie and Dan Watt wearing the A's. (North Bay Nugget)

  • Two noteworthy pre-seaosn results from last night: Dalhousie beat Saint Mary's 7-2, Trois-Rivieres routed Concordia 11-0.
  • It's dated now, but you should read about 16-year-old Carolina Romeo, who at 16 years old is already at the U of Calgary studying engineering and playing field hockey as the youngest varsity athlete in Dinos history. Basically, she puts all of our 16-year-old selves to shame. (The Gauntlet)

  1. Didn't Brody Beard play for Carleton last year?

  2. Well an earlier OspreyBlog said,

    *Brodie Beard (Ottawa 67’s) *ineligible until Oct. 24

    So I'm guessing that would be 365 days from the last game he played at Carleton.

  3. Heap tends to leave the ball behind in critical moments.
