Weve got a good young football team.Sometimes things dont work out. Welcome to the game of life. Its not always going to go our way. Thats the way it is sometimes.

Hes got that in spades.His best football is still way in front of him. Hes going to get a lot better as he plays and grows as a quarterback.On the plus side, the Hamilton defence led the league in fewest rushing yards allowed per game (77). And thanks to Banks, the Ticats were No. 1 in punt return average.Austin will also look to retain the band of brothers feel to his locker-room. This is a team that genuinely cares about each other.And Hamilton can look forward to a full season in its new home at Tim Hortons Field, where it went 6-0 during the regular season and 1-0 in the playoffs.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
