Riderville Roundup – March 17

Happy Saskatchewan Roughriders Day! Well, kind of, right? St. Patrick’s Day means one thing… put on your Rider green and drink some beer (responsibly, of course… and make it Churchill Brewing Company brews)! As if we need a holiday to do that here in Riderville…

 

We are in the lull of the CFL offseason now, not many signings and teams are getting ready for the CFL Draft coming up at the end of next month, so things will be pretty quiet over the next little bit.

 

But General Manager Jeremy O’Day did sign another few players this past week. Defensive Lineman R.J. McIntosh joins the green and white and will provide more competition in an already (projected to be) heated battle for a spot on the D-Line. McIntosh has NFL experience and will be given a great chance to win a roster spot.

And we have a new QB!! Jack Coan from the Notre Dame Fighting Irish is the youngest Quarterback to come to camp this year. He looks like he needs some work, but you can’t find the next one unless you try. Is he the next one here in Riderville? I’m glad we have another QB coming in and I look forward to seeing what he has.

 

Last week, we learned that Saskatchewan Roughriders legend, Hall of Famer Don Narcisse is going into the Texas Southern Hall of Fame later this year. He joined us on The Piffles Podcast this week to talk about that and more from his career. And he dropped a little tidbit for us at the end of the interview… he has a book coming out this year! Can’t wait to get my hands on that!
