HAMILTON -- At 33 years old, Hamilton Tiger-Cats receiver Dave Stala is fully aware that his time in the CFL is nearing its end.
However, that doesn’t mean the 10-year veteran won’t do everything in his power to ensure that whatever time he does has left is spent playing some top notch football.
“We’ll see how my body holds up. I try to play year-to-year now and over the last couple of years I’ve changed my diet and have been able to stay healthy the last four years,” said Stala when asked if this contract would be his last.
“I don’t think I’m slowing down, I’m still doing the things I can out there. I’ll take it one year at a time, play this year and see where we’re at next year,” he added.
And you can bet that Stala is hoping this year is better than last. Playing under George Cortez’s offensive system, Stala tallied his lowest statistical totals since joining the Tiger-Cats in 2009.
In 16 games in 2012, Stala hauled in 42 passes for 655 yards and a mere four touchdowns, failing to register even one 100-yard game in the process.
