Glenn goes from afterthought to starter with Stampeders

Glenn has started eight games and won five. He has the Stampeders on a three-game winning streak, in second spot in the CFL West division and his passing numbers, especially his 67.4 completion percentage, aren’t bad, either
Having now spent the past two months working closely with the 33-year-old Glenn, Dave Dickenson, the Stampeders’ offensive co-ordinator, has been impressed with what he’s seen. In the Labour Day win over the Eskimos, for example, Glenn threw a pair of interceptions (one was returned for a touchdown). But with 2 1/2 minutes left in the game, he capped a 51-yard scoring drive with a seven-yard touchdown pass.

“He’s very, very accurate [as a passer]; as accurate a guy as I’ve been around,? Dickenson said. “We wanted a guy that we know can win each every week and because Drew … honestly, the only knock we had on [Tate] was we weren’t sure he could stay healthy. I liked Joey Elliot. Kevin’s name came up; Jyles’ name came up, a few others. But we felt Kevin was a good fit for us personality-wise.?

“It’s been exciting,? Glenn said of his time with Dickenson. “To be with a guy who has played in the NFL, played in the CFL, having the career he had up here winning Grey Cups, it’s a privilege to sit in the room and pick his brain. … You start to figure out how this guy thinks on certain plays. We go over a game plan sheet and [the quarterbacks] tell Dave what we like and a lot of times we’re on the same page.
