"...[Jason] Boltus is one of 12 on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats' injured list this season, but he said Saturday that he is in perfect health. Boltus said CFL teams sometimes list players as injured to keep them on their active rosters, which prevents opponents from picking them up.
Boltus added he did not travel with the Tiger-Cats for Saturday's game at Calgary _ Hamilton lost, 15-14 _ so he returned to upstate New York for Hartwick's Homecoming Weekend and to grab a "home-cooked meal" today in his native Baldwinsville.
"It's a great way to live," Boltus said of being a professional football player. "(The CFL) is a great experience and a great opportunity to play football as your career. But it's tough coming from (Hartwick) playing four years and sitting. I just have to develop and learn and the next few years, I hope to get an opportunity to play."
Boltus, 23, set numerous records at Hartwick and was the only Division III player to earn an invitation to the NFL Combine this year, but he was overlooked during the 2009 NFL Draft. He later signed with Hamilton as a free agent.
"It's tough when you don't get picked when you think you're capable of some of the things the other guys do well," Boltus said. "The goal is to get to the highest level you can compete at, whether it's the CFL or NFL.
"But I'm happy where I'm at and that I have an opportunity to play," he continued. "And if I get an opportunity to play in the NFL, I'm going to go ahead and take that opportunity."[url=http://www.thedailystar.com/localsports/local_story_278040034.html]http://www.thedailystar.com/localsports ... 40034.html[/url]
Coach Oski: "Yes, he has an upper body injury. Above the shoulders. I had to remind him that he has just developed the precursors of a dislocated tongue.";) :D :D :D
