Quinlan: "It was awesome"
Canadian quarterback Kyle Quinlan, who led McMaster to the Vanier Cup last year, was the last of four quarterbacks to play for Montreal. Quinlan's first CFL pass was a gutsy 41-yard completion to Felton Huggins that put the Alouettes at the Toronto 46-yard line with under two minutes remaining.
After the game the offensive line, including veterans Jeff Perret and Scott Flory, came over to shake his hand...and quinlan says it was a great feeling to have their support.
"Oh ya it was awesome. Those guys were kind of razzing me a little bit to throw the ball deep before I went in, so Ithink when I went in and threw the one deep ball that got them going. So it was really nice to have those guys joking around and supporting me for sure"
Starting QB Anthony Calvillo says to see Quinlan achieve a successful long bomb on his first pass as a pro was impressive.
"Oh without a doubt. I was impressed with him when Isaw him win the championship last year when I was in Vancouver as a fan. So to see him in Camp and to do the things he's capable of doing and actually go out on the field and make a big play like that is exciting."
