Edmonton Wildcats Main Camp 2010

The Wildcats kicked off their 2010 main training camp this past Wednesday at Rundle Park with a solid core of veterans and an eager and spirited group of rookies in attendance. The Wildcats are coming off a very successful 2009 campaign, going all the way to the National Championship game in Nanaimo BC taking on the Vancouver Island Raiders of the BCFC. They fell short of taking the Championship, but are determined more than ever to carry on the success from 2009 and to get back to the National Championship which will be hosted this year by the winner of the Prairie Football Conference.

The Wildcats are looking forward to the return of many key veterans. Wide Receiver Jerit Lambert will be back for his 2nd year with the squad having set team records in several categories and picking up PFC & CJFL Rookie of the year honors in 2009. Rory Connop and Gabriel David will anchor the defense again this year, with Mike Podloski and Steven Rae establishing their presence in the secondary. Steven Giang will be a force on the D line again this year with a new face on the O Line in Scott Ledieu coming over from the U of A to shore up the offensive front 5. With the departure of QB Andy Pilon, having had a successful 5 year career with the Cats, QB Adam Senik is in position to take over the helm at the pivot position this season.
