NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Andrew Deutschmann weighs in today on the 2013 Leo’s Training camp battles to watch for. He said to watch for Strong Side Corner, Safety, Receiver, Back Up/Third String Quarterback, and Kicker as the best battles to view. 23 year old Hugh O’Neill will look to unseat Paul McCallum. Yes he`s talking kicker. Travis Lulay`s backup isn`t clear. Thomas DeMarco and Jarrett Brown and now Joey Elliot will duke it out.
NWSB Insider and BC Lions blogger Phil The Bartender Slater weighs in with his Week 18 CFL preview for the BC Lions vs. Calgary Stampeders from BC Place in Vancouver. Its’ funny how early season projections and predictions play out in reality. This game, many suspected, Phil included, was to determine top billing in the West back in June. Two young upstarts, Drew Tate and Travis Lulay looked to guide their respected teams into the promised land.
Vancouver sports blogger Carolyn Smith reports this week the BC Lions announced they have locked up their Grey cup champion defensive backs Dante Marsh and Ryan Phillips.
