TORONTO - The way Chad Kackert sees it, his best is yet to come.

He has been good. Now he wants to be great.

And considering what the running back meant to the Argonauts last season — that electric performance in the Grey Cup instantly comes to mind — Kackert’s inner fire should be alarming to opponents throughout the league.

“I’m progressing — I’m actually feeling that progress happen right now,” the 26-year-old said as the first week of training camp wrapped at the club’s Mississauga facility yesterday. “But there’s definitely a lot more to be done. I’ve got to prove to the coaches and myself that I’m worthy of the spot that I’m in.”

Make no mistake, since jumping into the lineup midway through last season, taking over for the injured, then traded Cory Boyd, Kackert has asserted himself to the point that he has become the undisputed heartbeat of the defending Grey Cup champions’ running game.
