QUOTE OF THE DAY
1st year linebacker, Chad Kilgore on his first day of a CFL Training Camp, “Day one of NFL training camp we just walked through stuff not in pads. First day here, we hit the ground running, it’s exciting.”
FANS SHOW SUPPORT
A few hundred fans strolled into the University of Saskatchewan’s Griffiths Stadium on an overcast and cool day for the Riders first full practices of the year. The excitement was high as fans cheered loudly following a couple of outstanding plays.
Select players will be available to fans for autographs along the west fence line following the afternoon practices throughout the week.
