shayne-gauthier-ici-entoures-parentsHis place just confirmed within 55 Bombers players, the Dolmissois Shayne Gauthier had the chance of showing last Friday, while the formation of Winnipeg crossed the iron against the Montreal Alouettes.

Linebacker has indeed been used on special teams and he even scored a first plated plug, in his first game in the Canadian Football League (CFL). “I was used throughout the game on special teams. It really was good and I’m glad it happened. We watched videos today (Saturday) to make corrections and it has been relatively well (for me), except for some stuff to fix. But that was always something to improve. I’m happy with my game, “says the # 44 which is 5-foot-10, 226 pounds.

Dolmissois for 24 years, its use is at the height of his efforts to earn a spot in the CFL. “The drafted players who playing time are relatively used on special teams. I think I deserve playing time I got. No, I’m not surprised that much (to already be in the starting lineup). I worked hard for this and I think that’s what I deserved. That’s why I wanted to play in this league and I think I deserve everything that happens to me, “says the likeable athlete telephone interview.

The product Rouge et Or of Laval University has quickly adapted to the rating change. “The game speed was faster at the university level, but I’m a guy that fits still pretty fast. The adjustment is done well and I think I’ll be able to make my way here. It starts 20 weeks! ”

The Dolmissois also confirmed he was fully recovered from injury to the hamstring suffered in early. “I think I could have played the second game of the preseason against Ottawa, but coaches and physiotherapists did not want to take any chances. But already at that time, I was healed and I have kept no ill effects from the injury, “he says.

As the game was held in Winnipeg, her parents and friends had to be content to follow the game on television. But this is only a postponement. On 26 August, Winnipeg will be in Montreal to face the Alouettes and it’s a safe bet there will be a nice big tiller Bleuets “déShaynés” for the occasion at Percival Molson Stadium. “If I have the chance to be part of the alignment starting in that game, I think there will be many members of my family and friends who will come to watch the game,” said laughingly one who was a fourth-round pick, 28th overall, on 10 May during the CFL draft.
