Rob Cote - Garnering the attention he deserves.

In professional football, the fullback is an often overlooked, and under-appreciated position on the roster. In the case of Calgary’s newly re-signed Rob Cote, it is evident as to why the 27-year-old has remained with the Stampeders for the past 7 seasons.

Allow me to preface this essay with the notion that there have been countless great players that have come and gone in the CFL. There remain many that will lace up their cleats for the 2014 season, and more still that have yet to achieve the honour of playing in the CFL. However, yesterday, in a hotel ballroom in Montreal, CFL fans witnessed the departure of a legend. I could go on with the same statistics we saw flash across our screens as AC delivered his retirement speech, and in doing so, paint a vivid picture as to why #13 will go down in Canadian Football (and professional football) history.
