"It was almost surreal" | Liegghio excited to learn from Medlock - Ed Tait

It was last Friday - less than 24 hours after the Canadian Football League Draft - and Marc Liegghio decided he had better get on the phone and speak again to Winnipeg Blue Bombers head coach Mike O'Shea.

They had chatted once before in the days leading up to the draft and again, as is tradition, not long after the Bombers had selected the Western University kicker in the fifth round, 39th overall.

Still, Liegghio didn't want O'Shea's last impression of him to be framed by the conversation he had when the Bombers boss first welcomed to the club late last Thursday - the one where he was emotionally overwhelmed, sobbing and repeating the same thing over and over again.

"Once you see your name on that list on draft day, everything just stops," began Liegghio in a conversation with "I was so emotional on draft night... it was almost surreal, like it doesn't feel like it's happening in that moment. But, obviously, people have been watching you and appreciated what you have done and all the hard work you've put into it and then want you be part of their program."
