Every athlete is different. Some like to go out while they are on top, some like to play for as long as possible.
Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray is at a crossroads of sorts at this point in his career.
The four-time Grey Cup winner has nothing more to prove, yet the 38-year-old led the Argos to impressive drives in back-to-back wins over the Riders and Stampeders to claim a championship.
He still has some good football in him.
As a fan of the player, I hope he hasn’t played his last game. Ray has again illustrated his intelligence level when it comes to the game of football.
His ability to read a defence, audible, then execute is second to none.
Ray is one of the most humble and grounded people in sports. As a fan of the person, it would be great to see one of the games’ best go out as a champion.
