Training Camp Notebook – 14.05.24

Day 3 of training camp kicked off with a bang.

Marken Michel and Titus Wall treated the team – and the onlookers in the stands – to a quick dance before stretching began on Wednesday morning.

It was the first padded practice of training camp and it brought an intensity with it. There was full offence versus defence matchup that saw the D end up with three interceptions.

Tomorrow will be more of a stretching practice followed by media day for the players before full practice ramps back up Thursday morning.

New Faces

There were two new bodies at camp on Wednesday.

Stamps 2024 first-round pick Ben Labrosse joined the team after spending rookie camp with the New York Giants. The defensive back talked about his first impressions from Stamps camp.

“Practice one was good, it was fun to be out here, good weather too,” he said. “After practice one I’ve got some work to do, we’ve got a lot of work to do as a team, but it’s going to be a fun summer working with the guys.”

Labrosse moved around all over the defensive backfield for his first day and says he’s pretty comfortable playing anywhere.

“I don’t mind playing different positions,” said Labrosse. “Whatever I can do to help the team. I’ll be in the playbook learning every position just whatever I can do to help, I don’t mind it at all.”

The Stampeders also added offensive lineman Kameron Jones who was with the Tennessee Titans rookie camp before making the trek up north. General manager and head coach Dave Dickenson spoke about the new addition to the offence.

“We wanted to bring Kam up right away but he had a rookie mini camp,” Dickenson explained. “We were staying in touch with him. There’s a few guys in that situation but we want to validate the work that has been done here.

“He didn’t look out of place but it was certainly a different knowledge base. Some things I could tell didn’t make sense but he has only been here for one day.”


Decision Making Time

The first big round of cuts will come before tomorrow. Dickenson spoke about the first large group of moves.

“It’s a tough day today,” he said. “We know we have to get down. We have to lose 10 players so we tried to give them as competitive a practice as possible so that they could showcase their skill and we will make our decisions.

For those that make it through the first round, they will get a big chance to try and solidify a roster spot with the Red And White Game on Sunday from 2:30-4:30 p.m.
