Winnipeg football coach is ‘really, really proud’ to see former players compete in Grey Cup

Three former football players from Winnipeg’s Oak Park High School are competing in the Grey Cup on Sunday and their old coach couldn’t be more proud.

“It’s like I got a horseshoe in my ear. I don’t know. It was a really, really rewarding and wonderful career to coach right through those years. I just seem to have one talented … player after another.”

Stu Nixon trained the Winnipeg Blue Bombers‘ Nic Demski and Brady Oliveria and the Toronto Argonauts‘ Andrew Harris.

Nixon said he’s lucky to have worked with such good players.

“In the program that I ran, we had a lot of really good coaches. We had guys that played university or pro or junior and had a lot of playing experience and then we’re really good with kids and coached for a long time. It was a good staff and we’re all like really, really proud.”
