Vols In The CFL Update (8/21)

Last week saw the match up of former UT wide receiver Jermaine Copeland (1995-98) and former defensive back Jonathan Hefney (2004-07) as the Hamilton Tiger Cats traveled halfway across the country to face off with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.

Hefney is now a strong-side linebacker for the Blue Bombers while Copeland is the receivers coach for the Tiger Cats after an 11-year CFL career.

The younger CFL Vol had a stellar game helping the Blue Bombers to their second win of the season racking up four tackles and his first sack of the season. Hefney now has 30 tackles on the year.

Hefney said after the game he had only one regret about his sack. "It was fun but (Burris) kind of ducked on me so I didn't get to hit him all the way," Hefney said. "Still, I'll always take a sack."
