What movie would Dino recommend for him?: Let’s go with “The Whole Nine Yards” which was set in Montreal. While the Bruce Willis movie doesn’t mention football, getting your receiver to think about getting close to a first down on every reception is a good strategy.
Interesting nugget o’interest: Mital and Labrosse give the Orange four players from Quebec so they are two players short of fielding an ice hockey squad and pretty sure you wouldn’t want to head into the corners to chase the book against that group.
Let’s get a look at ya: Here’s some highlights from Mital’s CEGEP days.
