Marc Liegghio is a heck of a kicker and a good friend of mine.  Any team that takes this guy will reap the benefits. This guy has incredible accuracy and distance.

Not familiar with him but I'm all for having a Canadian kicker as a back up and / or in development. Medlock can play for many more seasons or he may choose to retire at any time.

SMS is always an issue as is the ratio aspect.

I am all for a young Canadian kicker, however it looks like his longest FG last year was 45 yards. Not the leg strength we are us to. If there is football this year, he will learn a lot for JM.

He has a huge leg. No worries there. His longest may have been 45 but that probably had more to do with a coach deciding he doesn't like the risk of longer than that attempts.

While I agree he'll learn a lot from Medlock, your assertion he has questionable leg strength based on his longest college FG doesn't really add up.

Check him out on Twitter. He has leg strength: https://twitter.com/Liegghio19/status/887490301354442752

Not sure where to find USports stats, but what are his KO numbers like?  That is the judge of leg "strength"... for FG, I'm not worried about length, but rather accuracy...

Career: 88 percent FG, 99 percent Converts, 41.5 gross punt avg., 56.5 Kick off. He has improved every year at the U level.

That's a little light by CFL standards.  Most CFL kickers are at 62 yards average for kick offs or higher.   On the other hand, Sean Whyte, who is a very respectable CFL kicker, averaged 58 yards on kick offs. 

Justin Palardy also showed that you can keep a job with a slightly understrength leg, so long as you are accurate.  The Bombers got good (but not great) results from him (82% accuracy over his tenure), but when he went only 9 for 12 in addition to having limited range, he eventually got the sack. 

I am sure Liegghio has a stronger leg than Palardy, but my point is that the kid doesn't have to have a cannon to be viable.

Always good to have insurance justnin case Medlock quits or gets injured.

He?s also probably 22 years old. Let the kid grow up a bit before we decide he?s not strong enough.

The point was he is no Medlock right now. He has made improvements over his U career and will make more working with a kicker like JM if we have a CFL season this year.

Like a few bomber I am not sure if JM returns next year if there is no CFL in 2020.
