As a broadcaster I know the athletes who provide the most insight to fans in interviews are the athletes who are most comfortable in their own skin.
There aren’t many athletes that have the gift of providing insight while protecting team secrets. The majority struggle to straddle that line. It takes a smart person to find that balance. Kevin Glenn has that gift.
Glenn, like all athletes, has had ups and downs in his career. Since 2001 Glenn has continually been accountable for his performance, even when that peformance wasn’t of championship calibre. He’s at ease with where he is at in his career, and as a result has a great relationship with the ticket buyers through the media.
The Eskimos, who have a Grey Cup QB in Mike Reilly, have not only added veteran presence, but a player who is smart enough to know what makes a team tick and how to include fans in the process.
