"I`ve always said it`s nice coming home for Thanksgiving this weekend but I`d rather have the one last game that Gray Cup game to go to instead but it`s still nice to be able to come home," he said.
Dressler is one of the top athletes in the CFL. He was a finalist for the Most Outstanding Player award and yesterday, he was picked for making the play of the year in the league.
"I think back to just a few years ago coming in as a rookie and doing everything in your power just to make the team and stick around as long as you can and now as a veteran I feel like my focus is more geared toward how can I make the team better and how can I help the team win more so that just being a part of it so really it`s an interesting spot to be in you never really think about that you`re going to be around playing professional football for 5 or 6 years so something like that but to be there and doing it I`m having a lot of fun so I can`t complain about it," he said.
Weston is in Canada on a work visa and after the season is over, he stays in Regina and is employed by the Roughriders.
"Career Development Coordinator is what I`m called, but they just allow me to work with different organizations and different businesses in the community trying to help set up careers for guys once their football life is over and they get out into the real world so just trying to get guys into positions and opportunities where they can develop their non football and kind of get ready for the after," he said.
Weston has one year remaining on his current contract with the Roughriders.
