Mike Waldron is a halfback who joins the Huskies following five successful seasons with the Saskatoon Hilltops. “Spring camp with the Huskies was something new and different,” Mike explained to Huskie Outsider following the conclusion of spring scrimmage. “I really liked it – I’m looking forward to coming out again in the fall and working hard.” One of the new experiences that Mike referred to was the Dogs’ Breakfast. “That event was next to none – it was unbelievable and nothing compares to it.”
Mike was asked for his assessment of what he needs to do in order to be ready to compete for a starting spot in training camp. “I’ve got to work on a bunch of things, and it’s obvious after completing spring camp; it’s going to be a hard off season for me, and hopefully I can do what I need to do in order to get on the field.”
The Huskies will be replacing three of last year’s starting defensive backs (safety, 1 cornerback, and 1 halfback); this should lead to a fierce competition in camp that Waldron will be part of. “There’s always new guys coming up and veterans who have been playing for a while; everyone will be looking for a starting spot and it’s going to be a good competition between us. Hopefully I can do what I need to do.” Mike was asked what he will be doing during the summer in order to prepare himself for camp. “I’ll be working hard every day, coming out here and doing some footwork, and work with the receivers as much as I can.”
Huskie Outsider wishes Mike the best of luck with his training over the summer, and we look forward to watching him compete in training camp.
