If what I am hearing about this guy proves to be right, Mike Stadnyk could be this year's Weston Dressler.
RIDERS SIGN DRAFT PICK MICHAEL STADNYK
Saskatchewan Roughrider head coach Ken Miller announced today they have signed non-import defensive end Michael Stadnyk. Financial terms of the contract were not released.
Stadnyk (6’4 – 248 lbs) was drafted by the Riders is the second round (14th overall) in the 2008 CFL Canadian Draft. The Regina product played four seasons at Montana. In the last two seasons as a starter with the Grizzles, Stadnyk tallied 35 solo tackles, 11 quarterback sacks and six passes defended. The Miller High School graduate was selected as All-Big Sky Conference Honourable Mention in each of his last two seasons.
With the addition of Stadnyk, the Riders now have eight Saskatchewan born players on their rosters – five of which were born and raised in Regina.
