EDMONTON - Some shoes are bigger to fill than others.

When you’re talkin’ JC Sherritt, the CFL’s most outstanding defensive player of the year in 2012, it’s a completely different set of loafters.

“With JC, it’s not just one shoe to fill, but two shoes to fill,” said fellow Eskimos linebacker T.J. Hill about the magnitude of the loss. “People say that’s a big shoe to fill … no, that’s two shoes to fill.”
