On Defence

I would want Dan Kepley and OJ Briggance for LB

Larry Highbaugh and Joe Hollimon as DB

Damn, Edmonton had a lot of talent.
But they didn’t have Junior Ah-You.

Junior Ah -You is up there with Wonderful Monds with best CFL names .

I did a post on that last year. I think it was my favourite yet.
Maybe I’ll do a “best nickname” next.

I think oline is the toughest area to pick. Apart from all Star selections, years of service, consecutive games played etc. that is one position where there aren’t really any distinguishing game stats to go by. Maybe they need to come up with number of defensive lineman flattened in a game.

The o-line are the unsung heroes of football. You can’t win without a good one.
Look at BC last season.

Wonderful Monds is my favourite of all time. Junior Ah-You another great one - was in Hawaii a few years ago and he is also in the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame in Oahu.

Other great names - Prince Wimbley III, SirVincent Rogers, Demetrius Breedlove, Prechae Rodriguez, R-Kal Truluck...
