Camping out

STAR OF THE DAY

Not only does non-import wide receiver Blair Atkinson keep getting open, he keeps making solid catches whenever the ball comes his way. And he was the most noticeable pass-catcher in yesterday's camp. Honourable mentions to QB Kevin Glenn, LB Cam Hall, SB Quentin McCord, DB Davin Bush and RB Fred Reid.

CATCH OF THE DAY

Non-import SB O'Neil Wilson laid himself out to make a diving catch of a Kevin Glenn toss as he hit the turf. Honourable mention to WR Derick Armstrong, who made a leaping grab in tight coverage.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Last year was a bad year in Hamilton."

-- Recently-arrived punter Pat Fleming, who still doesn't know why the pathetic Tiger-Cats cut him.

BATTLE OF THE DAY

FULLBACK

It hasn't been much of a battle. Graeme Bell was unable to show up for camp after being attacked by a bat-wielding thug in Saskatoon and head coach Doug Berry has already said that Cory Olynick will need to make the squad as a special teams terror as he is undersized for the position.

That leaves the 6-foot, 232-pound Gilles Lezi, who finally passed his medical earlier this week.

"Gilles Lezi, at the fullback spot, is showing that he is going to be a capable guy to help fill the shoes left by (retired fullback Scott) Regimbald," Berry said.
