Tomorrow's pre-season finale won't mean much to Calgary Stampeders fans.

But it's crucial to a number of players fighting for jobs.

Safeties Trey Young and Brandon Haw are well aware they'll be under a microscope when the team travels to Regina.

Secondary coach Tim Burke said the battle for the starting safety spot will likely be decided tomorrow.

"Yeah, I think it will," Burke said.

Haw could play almost anywhere, Burke said.

"The thing that Brandon gives you is he can play a number of different positions where Trey is our free safety, so they bring different things to the table."

Haw said he'd prefer to play safety but is willing to go in any direction the coaching staff sends him.

"Anywhere they pay me (to play), I'm comfortable," Haw said with a laugh.

"I like the free (safety) better. I think I have great range, a sense for the ball, hands. I think that's where I'd play best but I'll go wherever the coaches want me to.

"I'm a switch hitter. I'll go left, right, halfback, corner, wherever you want me."

The 6-ft. 204-pounder is focused on showing the coaches everything they need to see tomorrow night.

LOOKING FOR A DB

With DB J.R. Ruffin nursing a knee injury, Burke is looking for someone to step up and prove they're capable of filling in.

"Right now, I would say it'll either be Crance Clemons or Calvin Bannister," Burke said.

CHEVY'S OK
