Dubuc already knows the drill

Deitan Dubuc is no stranger to rookie camps.

Attending the University of Michigan and bouncing around the NFL the past couple of seasons, the six-foot-four, 250-pound former tight end knows the drill.

"I did it in college and in the pros I've already done it three or four times," chuckled Dubuc.

Following yesterday's on-field session, Dubuc along with the rest of Edmonton's CFL neophytes spent two days in the classroom soaking up offensive and defensive schemes.

That, too, is old hat for Dubuc, whose CFL rights were acquired from Calgary in exchange for the first overall selection in the 2002 Canadian college draft.

Pencilled in as a fullback during rookie camp, the former Wolverine is slated to line up at slotback when the Esks open camp tomorrow.

"Anywhere they feel I would fit the best and help them to win, I'll do that," Dubuc said.

"I'm comfortable playing either one or both. I really don't know what to expect."

BE OUR GUEST: Bob Foster (formerly of University of California, Berkley), David Lessard (Universite de Montreal) along with Marc Fortier (Universite Laval) and Justin Ethier (Universite Laval) round out this year's list of guest coaches.

LATE HITS: Non-import defensive lineman Randy Spencer had off-season rotator cuff surgery and is likely to be a scratch when camp opens.

Despite an intensive rehab program following the December surgery, Spencer is not yet 100%.
