Well Stampeders fans, I believe you are well covered and, heading into the 2013 season, have the best QB scenario around!

A healthy, reinvented, and newly improved version of Drew Tate raring to go is exciting to say the least. A focus of MMA influenced off-season training, coupled with kettlebell training, and Tate hopes to put his injury-riddled past behind him and play up to his and everyone else's expectations. He needs to seize this opportunity, put the past behind him and produce like I know he can.

Now if for some reason this does not transpire, never fear, KG is near! Kevin Glenn played the role of back-up QB like no other in recent memory. When called upon he simply delivered on every occasion with the exception of the final game of the season in 2012. He elevated his stature as a leader and elite QB in the league last season with how he handled himself in what could have been an extremely precarious situation, if handled differently.

Glenn showed humility and poise, time and time again, refusing to make it about himself and giving his teammates an opportunity to stay focused and trust in his leadership when needed.

If that's not enough, throw in a Bo Levi Mitchell, who is a stud in the making, and the Stamps are set for the foreseeable future! When called upon in spot duty last year, Mitchell delivered on a regular basis and when given the chance, delivered as anticipated. Love this kid, big time!

Ryan Perrilloux is another one of those raw talents with a spectacular resume. Check out what this kid did as a senior in high school and why he was named Mr. Football in the great state of Louisiana.
