Als top draft pick ready for everything, just don't ask him to sing anthem
Patrick Lavoie chuckles that he's "only" 286 games behind Anthony Calvillo in CFL experience after tomorrow. The Als' top pick in the 2012 draft has won a heavy role on special teams but has also impressed coach Trestman so much he'll see duty as a fullback and tight end.
Lavoie knows his primary job on offense is keeping Calvillo safe and sound and throwing.
He laughs about his lack of pro experience but Trestman says Lavoie is wise beyond his years. Lavoie confesses he doesn't even have as much CFL experience as his girlfriend---she's sung the anthem once per season at Als games for several years.
"No you don't want me singing a duet," he laughs.
Just stick to smacking people on teams, Patrick. And don't let anyone near AC.
Listen to Lavoie and catch the action live as the Alouettes kick off 2012 Sunday at 7PM on CJAD 800 with Rick Moffat and former CFL Allstar Ed Philion.
