The University of Regina Rams football team like the look of what they have going into the Canada West season.
They will find out how good of a team they are on Friday night when the University of Calgary Dinos–the defending conference champions, roll into Mosaic Stadium for a 7 o’clock contest.
This is the 3rd year for Rams head coach Steve Bryce. He says he feels the overall team from top to bottom is a better squad this year than the one that went 4-5 last season including a seven-point loss to UBC in a conference semi-final.
Bryce will have one more chance this season to see Noah Picton as his quarterback. The 2016 Hec Crighton Trophy will exhaust his university eligibility at the end of the season.
Picton, who spent time with the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts at their training camp this season, is expected to have a big year, but Bryce doesn’t know if he can be any more focussed at the task at hand.
“I don’t know if he can be more driven.” Bryce proclaimed. “He is so competitive at everything he does. I don’t know if you can be more competitive or have more drive than he has had before.
Picton goes into the game needing just 160 yards to become the 6th quarterback in Canadian university football history to throw for 10,000 career yards.
620 CKRM will have the game for you starting at 7 o’clock.
