Bombers GM keeping positive

Winnipeg Blue Bombers general manager Kyle Walters appears to be more than excited with the upcoming 2021 Canadian Football Season after the 2020 season was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Despite the many challenges of the pandemic, Walters appears quite content with the fact the core group of players from the 2019 Grey Cup champions Winnipeg Blue Bombers are returning with the team for the 2021 season.

When asked about the possibility of repeating as Grey Cup champions a lot had to do with keeping as many players together from the 2019 championship team.

“All the guys wanted to hear about the big picture plan,” he said. “They wanted to do it as a group again.”

Walters noted that it has been about 17 months since players and coaches were together as a collective group as the pandemic dramatically disrupted the Canadian Football League.

“We do have a plan,” he said.

According to Walters, training camp, which gets underway on July 10, will be about evaluating the fitness levels of the players.

“It’s going to be revved up throughout training camp and through competition,” he noted.
