TC2011: Alouettes not slowed by the heat

Sherbrooke, June 6, 2011 – Fans on-site for Day 2 of the Montreal Alouettes’ 2011 Training Camp did not leave Bishop’s University disappointed following a day marked by speed, execution, spectacular catches, and even a handful of hits, despite the fact that the players were practicing without their shoulder pads on.

Although the heat was overwhelming at times, it didn’t stop receivers Jamel Richardson, Dallas Baker and Tim Maypray from making a number of spectacular catches throughout the day. Brandon London also took advantage of the opportunity and made several highlight-reel receptions of his own.

Inactive yesterday, veteran quarterback Anthony Calvillo threw a couple of passes today, although for the most part, repetitions at the position were split between Adrian McPherson and Ricky Santos.

Finally, defensive back Jerald Brown and safety Tad Crawford each made an interception during simulated game situations.

New arrivals

Offensive linemen Car Spitale and Jeraill McCuller, along with defensive back Maxwell Lerner all joined the Alouettes on Monday, as did Shomari Earls (DE), Erik Clanton (DE) and Seth Williams (DB).


Defensive tackle Jermaine McGhee was cut by the Alouettes on Monday, along with receiver Vince Lalonde.


Training camp will resume on Tuesday morning at Coulter Field with back-to-back practices scheduled to begin at 8:30 a.m.
