VERO BEACH – The Montreal Alouettes are taking full advantage of their time in Florida to polish up on their plays, as the players took part in two practices at Historic Dogertown on Tuesday, during the team’s second day of Spring Camp.
One player who is always happy as soon as he sets foot on the football field is linebacker Bear Woods, whose good humour and great spirits are contagious.
“It’s always great to be back with the teammates and it feels good to be out there with them. All the changes that I’ve seen are good and I’m excited about my new teammates,” said Woods, who is practicing in his home state.
Plesius back at home For linebacker Frédéric Plesius, wearing an Alouettes uniform represents something special, as he can now suit up for the team he grew up watching.
“It’s a very special feeling for me as I’m coming back at home and will have the opportunity to play in front of my family. I am blessed to be here. It adds pressure in me, but I accept that. I am very excited about this upcoming season,” declared the former Laval Rouge et Or standout, who played in Hamilton the last three seasons.
“Noel Thorpe’s group is very special. Playing in that defence requires discipline and that is why it has been so surprising year after year. I really like what they do on that unit to bother the quarterback,” added Plesius.
Last practice on Wednesday
The Alouettes will be back on the field for the final practice of spring camp on Wednesday, as the team will practice at 10:15 a.m.
