He first saw the light of day in Costa Rica, first donned football pads in Montreal and got his first job as a pro in Toronto.

Julian Feoli-Gudino hopes the next first comes in Winnipeg.

A 26-year-old who starred as a receiver and kick returner at Laval University, Feoli-Gudino never got a chance to play anything but special teams the last two years with the Argonauts.

Here, he’s been one of the surprises of training camp, latching onto nearly everything thrown his way — including a 23-yard grab of a Drew Willy pass on the Bombers’ second offensive play against his old team, Monday.

“Pretty cool,” is how Feoli-Gudino described the game. “I played against Toronto and making that first catch against them on first down, that was pretty nice. Definitely I’m pumped about it... there’s practice and there’s games. At one point you’ve got to make the plays in the game.”
