Anybody here remembers R-Kal Truluck ? He is a defensive end who played 7 games with the Alouettes in 2001. Since then, he mostly played in the NFL.
During his 7 games with the Als, he got 4 sacks, 12 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. Not bad.
He just resurfaced yesterday at the Alouettes' training camp after being cut by the NFL.
Instead of bragging that his NFL experience would give him an edge - like so many players do - he said quite the opposite:
«While in the NFL, I worked on becoming bigger and heavier. That fitted their game. Now, it will make it difficult for me in the CFL. This game is different. It will be pretty hard on my lungs with the bigger field and faster game. But I'll do my best.»
Don't you just like when players recognize our game is different?
Good luck R-Kal !
