Edmonton Wildcats Kick-Off Edmonton Eskimos 50/50 Season

The Edmonton Wildcats kicked off the Edmonton Eskimos 2011 season with their 50/50 volunteer campaign this past Friday night. There was a great turnout of Wildcat volunteers numbering 25 plus with a crowd on hand of over 31,000 in attendance at the Eskimos final preseason game of the season. The Wildcat volunteers will be at every home game selling 50/50 tickets this year in support of Junior Football in Edmonton. Come out and help support Junior Football in the City of Champions.

As the CFL clubs finalized their 2011 rosters over the weekend, the Wildcats want to congratulate a couple of their own who were successful in making their receptive clubs this past weekend. Corbin Sharun has once again secured a spot on the Eskimos roster for another season and had a great camp with the club. Another former Wildcats Jeff Hecht was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Montreal Alouettes and made the final cut over the weekend after having a solid training Camp with the Alouettes.

The Wildcats will kick off the 2011 season with their Main Camp which will commence on Monday July 25th with the traditional King of the Cats competition at Rundle Park. Main practices being on Tuesday at 6:30pm.
