Huskies' results from CFL E-camp

Three University of Saskatchewan Huskies took part in the CFL Evaluation Camp over the weekend in Toronto. Receiver Jade Etienne and Braeden George, and linebacker Peter Thiel were among 53 football players who took part in the three day camp.

A player's draft stock and either rise or fall at the E-camp and Friday's interview portion and Sunday's on-field play can sometimes be the biggest indication of a player's true ability but the scouts can't ignore Saturday's testing results either. So, today we recap how the three Huskies faired in their individual tests.

Jade Etienne - Receiver (rank among position in brackets)
Bench press - 8 reps (8th)
40 yard dash - 4.66 (5th)
Vertical jump - 33" (7th)
Broad jump - 9'11" (6th)
Shuttle - 4.35 (t-6th)
3-cone drill - 7.19 (8th)

Braeden George - Receiver
Bench press - 17 (3rd)
40 yard dash - 4.88 (9th)
Vertical jump - 28.5" (9th)
Broad jump - 8'8.5" (9th)
Shuttle - 4.35 (t-6th)
3-cone drill - 7.09 - (6th)

Peter Thiel - Linebacker
Bench press - 18 (2nd)
40 yard dash - 4.90 (2nd)
Vertical jump - 32" (t-2nd)
Broad jump - 9'2" (4th)
Shuttle - 4.18 (2nd)
3-cone drill - 6.91 (2nd)

Looking at the numbers it would appear as though Peter Thiel had an excellent day of testing and it appears as though he did. Here's hoping that all three impressed in their interviews and on the field on Sunday.
