    A couple of Canadian brothers go from the CIS to the Italian League.

    The story is a couple years old but pretty neat still. Andrew and David Agro played for Wilfrid Laurier before joining the Bergamo Lions.

    Tyler's JUCO qb coach played in Germany. Plus, I know some coaches in the Portland area who coached & some are still coaching in Europe. They are always looking for players. Heard great things about the way NA players are treated. And they can make some decent money. Cochrane AB product Cassidy Donnef who is a receiver for the Bombers played over there. He parlayed a monster season two years ago into a CFL career now.

    I was wondering who was going to say that first. (As I bit my knuckles in anticipation). ;)
