Notes on our athletes/teams of interest from The 613...
Gee-Gees: The Hamilton Spectator noted on Friday that the OUA's fourth-leading receiver last season, Steven Hughes, "will be transferring" from York to Ottawa. Hughes would have to sit out a year as a transfer, but he's playing junior football in Hamilton in the meantime. He would probably be a very good fit at a school that's made a few tall receivers -- Adam Nicolson, Ibrahim Tounkara, a few years earlier, and so on -- into stars.
Football: The Saint Mary's Huskies star quarterback Erik Glavic, as noted in further detail The CIS Blog, is not a sure bet to get back on the field after having knee surgery last fall. It's worth noting that Nathan Beeler, the star QB for the Ottawa Sooners last season, is now at Saint Mary's. Beeler was a 70% passer in the Sooners' pro style passing game, and he saw some action in the CIS with the Calgary Dinos in 2006, so he's not the typical newcomer.
