As the Redblacks came into work for the final practice of the season, there’s a high possibility taht you wouldn’t be able to tell who the players really were. Yes, the team had been shaken around throughout the season, but at what point did we sign Forrest Gump?
Well, we all know Gump played some running back at the University of Alabama, but when he came to Ottawa as a kicker most were surprised.
Shown in the picture displayed is, Richie Leone as Forrest Gump, and Michael Klassen as Hulk Hogan.
On the football side of things, Leone was announced to be the Redblacks’ candidate for special teams player of the year. Along with Leone was Avery Williams (MOP, DPOY), Jerod Fernandez (ROY), and Nolan Macmillan (OLOY, CPOY) who will represent the Redblacks at the CFL awards during Grey Cup week this November.
Unfortunately for the Redblacks, the season will not be leading them to the Grey Cup as it did last season and the season finale will take place tomorrow at TD Place.
Going into the game, there are two noticeable changes, which are, Dominique Davis to start at quarterback and John Crockett will be back from injury and to start at running back.
Other than those two moves, there are not many changes to the team as the Redblacks will be focused on the future and looking at what we’ve got for the next season.
As mentioned before, the Redblacks showed up to today’s walkthrough in costumes, but in tomorrow’s game they will be wearing a game face as they fight for future roster spots.
Stay tuned to the Redblacks as they fight for their fourth win in their season finale against the Alouettes in Ottawa tomorrow.
