Here is an excerpt from the article:

“I would love to play in the CFL; it’d be so much fun,” said an excited Etienne.

The 6’3 wide receiver’s high rank serves as a testament to the astounding season he had this year. Etienne led the Canada West in receiving yards per game and was named a First Team All-Canadian.

Etienne is quick to credit the strength of the University of Saskatchewan football program and the team as a whole.

“Brian Towriss has been coaching here for nearly 30 years. He has put a lot of players on the map,” he said.

“I had to put in a lot of hours at the weight room to follow along with the work-out routines that the coaching staff gave me. I have a lot of support and teammates are happy to help when I’m lifting weights.”

      Hi Stan: Yes, Jade finished up his fourth year with the team (he red-shirted his first year). I hope he’s back for a fifth (after getting some experience at a CFL camp).
