Hurl happy, but not satisfied

Jul 20, 2017

Sam Hurl isn't spending much time patting himself on the back these days. Though you couldn't really blame him if he was. Going into the season, Hurl was in a battle to regain his spot as the starting middle linebacker for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. There were some folks who were surprised when he went out and won the job. Hurl wasn't one of them, though gloating isn't really his style. Football doesn't often allow that sort of thing, since starting jobs can sometimes be lost as quickly as they've been won. “It's definitely rewarding, but the reward will come as the season goes on,” said Hurl, a standout with the University of Calgary Dinos before he was chosen 12th overall in the 2012 CFL Draft by the Saskatchewan Roughriders. “I don't feel great about the way things have gone yet. There's so much more to accomplish and it's so early. Having a couple of good games to start off a season doesn't mean all much to me. For me, it's about playing 18 great games, playing great in the playoffs and getting to a Grey Cup. Ultimately, I'm not even close to where I want to be to be satisfied.” All of that is understandable, especially given what Hurl has been through, but believing in himself and not doubting his ability to fill the starting role was critical for him heading into this season. “You have to have belief in yourself and you have to know you can do anything out here,” said Hurl, who has 14 defensive tackles and an interception through three games this season. “That's what I've learned over the six years (in the CFL). The guy you have to count on the whole time is yourself. You have your support system back home, but ultimately it comes down to you being in the field and trying to make plays. You have your teammates around you, but mentally, you have to be 100% in tune and confident in your ability. That's important.” Going into Friday's match-up with the B.C. Lions (3-1), Hurl figures to be involved in the middle of things, since the Blue Bombers (2-1) defence is in for another stiff test. The Lions have a potent offence, even though Travis Lulay is back at the controls after Jonathan Jennings injured his shoulder last week. The Lions feature an impressive aerial attack, plus a solid ground game that leads the league with seven rushing touchdowns. “With Lulay coming in, he's an experienced quarterback, so there's not going to be a drop-off in any sense,” said Hurl. “They have some good players on offence, but we're excited for the challenge and to test ourselves a bit. Every team in this league, each week it's the same story. A lot of teams have a lot of weapons and a lot of teams are good out there. So you have to bring what you've got week-in and week-out. “We're trying to be 100% focused and locked up in every sense of the word.” Although Khalil Bass took over the starting job at middle linebacker for most of the past two seasons, it's important to remember Hurl was originally signed by the Blue Bombers to fill that role. It's not like Hurl doesn't have any experience as a starter either, since he grew into that role with the Roughriders before joining the Blue Bombers in free agency in 2015. Even last season, Hurl was having a strong training camp before he was sidelined by a hamstring injury and was limited to 12 games, including one start. “I've seen a guy who is out there playing good football and leading,” said Blue Bombers head coach Mike O'Shea, when asked to assess Hurl's play in the early part of the season. “He's certainly fine-tuning his leadership. He's always, as a lot of good players are, critical of his own performance and it's not just about his play out there. He's talking about how he communicated during a game, if he let something slide. (With) accountability and those kind of things, he's trying to take that to another level and he's doing a great job. “I don't know his exact numbers, but I see him going from sideline to sideline in practice and in games. I hear him speaking up in the meeting rooms. Out there on the field, he's making plays and doing what we're asking him to do. He's a good football player and we knew that when we signed him.” kwiebe@postmedia.com Submit a letter to the editor .
