The desire of the elite athlete to succeed is what makes Sunday’s Grey Cup match up interesting.
Trevor Harris got a first-hand look at what it takes to win a Grey Cup when he watched future Hall of Famer Ricky Ray lead Toronto to a championship six years ago.
Harris only played in two Toronto regular season games in 2012, but he learned a lot.
Four years later, Harris played a vital role in the RedBlacks march to the 2016 Grey Cup. However, it was Henry Burris that was that was at the controls for a championship win over Calgary. Now the 32-year-old RedBlacks pivot is ready to show he can be in command of a Grey Cup winning offense.
For Bo Levi Mitchell, it’s simple. He’s a leader on a team that has, in back-to-back years, come up short in the biggest game of the year. The 2014 Grey Cup champion doesn’t want to go down as the one hit wonder, and be known as the quarterback of the team that can’t get over the hump.
