James Eggink - Stiff Competition

James Eggink was among the players selected by the Montreal Alouettes in the 1996 CFL draft. Eggink was certainly a fine player -- until his death in December 1995... "I'm upset and embarrassed," Alouettes owner Jim Speros later remarked. "The research process can be very difficult."

[The previous year, the Ottawa Rough Riders picked Derrell Robertson, who had died four months earlier.]
