Ten months ago, Darcy Brown was a rarely-targeted receiver for the Saint Mary’s Huskies. This week, he’ll make his CFL debut as a fullback with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Brown, the sixth overall pick in May’s draft, is one of a handful of Saint Mary’s Huskies grads on season-opening CFL rosters. The Ticats see great potential in the 6-foot-3, 251-pound Brown and like what he offers as a fullback.
Here are the others:
Marc Beswick, Hamilton
The six-foot-one DB spent last season with the Blue Bombers, but signed with Hamilton last week.
Sebastien Clovis, Saskatchewan
The former all-Canadian DB is back with the Roughriders for a second season and will fight for more field time.
Steve Morley, Winnipeg
The former No. 1 overall pick and NFLer from Halifax will look to get things back on track with the Blue Bombers.
Joel Lipinski, Saskatchewan
He spent one season with Saint Mary’s and is now the DB on the practice roster with his hometown team in Regina.
Tim St. Pierre, Edmonton
St. Pierre, a six-foot linebacker, returns to Edmonton for a second season and will serve as one of the Eskimos’ captains.
Dave Stala, Hamilton
He had 1,037 yards and five touchdowns in 2005, but the long-time Alouettes WR is coming off two injury-plagued seasons.
