Lions' linebacker Javier Glatt is a Calgary-born, University of B.C. product in his seventh CFL season. He was drafted in 2003's second round.

24 hours: You were on special teams two weeks ago in your new role, but did see action on defence.

Javier Glatt, #6: There's one package where I'm still involved in, we had an injury where JoJuan (Armour) got hurt, so I got a chance to play a couple of plays and make the most of it.

24: The team is still below .500, but the first home win took a lot of pressure away.

#6: It was definitely a lot of pressure building in this place, the place was about to burst. A lot of anxiety around here. The win is a good step in the right direction, but not anything we need to go crazy about. We were in the first third of the season, not nearly as important as the last third of the season. We'll just focus on the next six games and try to continue to get better.

24: The turnover means you're one of the longer serving veterans. How does that feel?

#6: It's also the same as any team you've ever been on. The leaders have to lead and the followers have to follow. You've got to limit the finger-pointing and name-calling, and just realize that we've got to grow together as a group.

24: After practice you're wearing a Livestrong sweatshirt and wristband. Do you cycle?

#6: I like mountain biking, I like road biking. I just got into it in the last year and a half, I don't go too crazy, I just do Burnaby Mountain and the Endowment Lands, I haven't done too much of the North Shore. My downhill's a Norco Sasquatch and I've got a Specialized for the road.
