Grant Shaw, Tony Washington guest on Eskimo Empire episode 42

For episode 42 of the Eskimo Empire Podcast, Esks punter/kicker Grant Shaw joins the boys in the Turf District, bringing returning guest Tony Washington with him!

Grant grew up in Edmonton and was an Esks fan before he joined the team. He tells us about his journey through football and what it felt like to win a championship for his home town. He truly knows what it means to “be an Eskimo”. Tony and Grant talk about the “City of Champions” and what it means to them.

Tony then sticks around for the second half of the show to discuss the latest Esks news, including the extension of Mike Reilly and some impressions out of mini camp. There is no doubt that Mike is the leader of the team, and the group discusses the QBs coming to camp.

In CFL news, Tony talks about how good it is to have the new PED testing in place and the boys discuss the new NFL-CFL Officiating Development program.
