Breakout game in Canada for WR S.J. Green
Former USF receiver S.J. Green, patiently waiting for most of two seasons on the Montreal Alouettes' practice roster, got a big break last week, catching five passes for 113 yards and a touchdown and making a name for himself in the CFL ranks.
"It was very frustrating, a very humbling experience for me having to sit and wait two years on the practice squad, knowing that I could play and contribute," Green told the Canadian Press after the win. "I waited my turn and made the best of the opportunity I received."
Green had totaled 114 yards in two seasons, nearly matching that in a single day, and there's optimism his production can continue -- he was originally activated because of a teammate's injury. His next game is Saturday against Saskatchewan. Here's another story on Green from last week in the Montreal Gazette.
And thanks to readers Brent and Phil Forget, father and son and USF alums from 1975 and 2004, who attended Thursday's game and were able to meet Green afterwards. They were nice enough to pass along the photo you see here ...
