With the 2015 CFL Combine (Mar. 27-29) and CFL Draft (TBA) approaching on the offseason calendar, profiles some of the prospects who could be taken this spring. Currently the No. 4 ranked prospect in this years CFL Draft, Tyler Varga will have the interest of all nine CFL teams. Who wouldnt want a Canadian running back who can run, catch and block? Its clear that right now though, Vargas focus is to make it to the National Football League. Im pretty much as passionate as they come being on the football field, Varga said. If something doesnt work out with the NFL, I know there are a lot of teams after me in the CFL, and being a domestic player, that increases my value as well so I think thats something I would want to pursue if the NFL didnt work out. Playing there, its a proud thing to do playing in front of Canadian fans. A season for the ages with the Yale Bulldogs has landed Varga on the NFLs radar which led to an invitation to the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama and could yield good results come draft time: 84 out of the 110 players invited to the game last year were drafted into the NFL. If youre good enough the NFL will find you. I think Im on the radar for a lot of teams. Varga told TSN from Florida last week. I think getting a Senior Bowl invite is huge obviously and that really gets you a lot of exposure. Every single team (in the NFL) is going to be at the Senior Bowl so that would be a great chance to prove my value to all these teams and show that Im capable of doing multiple things on the field. NFL teams are likely familiar with Varga already. He had such a good season at Yale in 2014 that all 32 teams in the NFL made the trip to watch him play. Looking at his numbers, its no wonder Varga garnered such interest. In 10 games he had 1,423 yards rushing and he broke the school record for touchdowns in a season with 26 (22 rushing, four receiving), including two games where he scored five touchdowns each (against Army and Colgate). He was named the Ivy Leagues 2014 Offensive MVP and made All-America teams for two publications. I just kind of went out there, played for my teammates, played for my coaches, played for my university and things kind of worked out the way that they did, Varga said. I knew I was ready to go and I knew that I didnt have to do anything spectacular, I just had to do what I knew I could do and things worked out. Varga showed how serious he was to play in the NFL when he signed Joe Linta as his agent. Linta has over 30 NFL players as clients, the most prominent of which is Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco. Without any question, he will play on Sundays, Yale head coach Tony Reno told TSNs James Duthie in early November when asked about Vargas NFL potential. Hes an incredible talent. He can do all three things. He can run, he can block, and he can catch the football extremely well. To play in the NFL, if you have a checkmark against you in one of those categories, you better be incredibly talented at one or two of the others to make it. But Ty has all three. He could play tailback, he could play fullback, he could play H-back. Varga seconded his coachs assessment when we spoke to him last week. Im multi-dimensional essentially. I can catch the ball out of the backfield, I can line up at the slot and run routes from there. Im a physical back and can run away from people too. I think Im going to be able to show that at the Senior Bowl and I can block as well so I think thats something a lot of teams are going to like is that I show qualities of an every down back and somebody who can fit into a lot of different schemes so I have experience in all those things at the college level. Varga was born in Sweden and raised in Kitchener, Ontario. His father John, a former football player and bodybuilder, and his mother Hannele, a former alpine skier, blessed their son with great genetics and a love for sports. He credits a sport many wouldnt associate with football for his athletic start. I got into gymnastics at a young age and that definitely set the foundation, Varga explained. I think Im going to put my kids in that because that definitely gives kids a solid set of tools to work from. It gives you good co-ordination skills thats important and translates into other sports. His dedication off the field also started early. Ive been raised eating well my whole life, Varga told us. My parents never forced me to do anything but it was just something that I learned from them and its a path that Ive chosen to go down in terms of getting the proper nutrition and it works, it gets you results so I know that, Ive seen that so why not stick with that and put your best foot forward. With his Dad being a former quarterback, it sparked an interest in football for Varga when he was eight years old. His passion for the game grew and he became one of the most sought after Canadian recruits after his final high school season. After recovering from a near career-ending peroneal tendon (calf) tear, he would end up playing one season at the Western University where he was named the CIS rookie of the year. After one season with the Mustangs, he transferred to Yale, a decision he has not regretted. The reputation that Yale has goes pretty far back. Its pretty cool to go to (a) school like that and just rub elbows with some really intelligent kids and that rubs off on you a little bit too and thats a cool thing, Varga said. Theres another kid thats worthy of your spot and if your not pushing yourself to be the best that you can be then they should be in your place so thats something thats been a cool kind of motivator that pushes you to be better as a person whatever youre trying to do. I love my Yale family the only thing I regret is not being there for four years. Carrying a stellar GPA over 3.5, Varga plans to become an orthopaedist once his football career ends. Varga mentioned that medicine can wait and it seems CFL fans may have to wait a bit also before seeing Tyler Varga. Lonzo Ball Purple Jersey . JOHNS, N. Lonzo Ball Youth Jersey .

Lonzo Ball Swingman Jersey . 5 Trade Deadline isnt that far away and teams will be making decisions on whether to buy, sell and decide which players can make the biggest difference and hold the greatest value.With new head coach Carl Robinson at the helm, the Vancouver Whitecaps will look to get back into the MLS Western Conference playoff picture. TSN soccer analyst Luke Wileman tells you everything you need to know about the 2014 Whitecaps, while TSN soccer analyst Jason deVos tells you how they will succeed or fail during the new campaign. Luke Wileman: After missing out on the playoffs in 2013, Vancouver Whitecaps have re-tooled ahead of the new season. They lost their leading scorer, Camilo, in controversial circumstances, but the Caps will enter the 2014 season with a stronger overall squad. The biggest change of the offseason was the departure of head coach Martin Rennie. After two years with the club, Rennies contract was not renewed, and after a long search, the Whitecaps promoted Carl Robinson from his role as assistant coach to take the top job. I said at the time that Robinson was the perfect choice. He already knew the inner workings of the club from his time on Rennies coaching staff, but has brought a fresh outlook. Robinson is heading into his rookie season as a head coach, and it will be a steep learning curve, but theres little doubt he is ready for the task ahead. The way he handled difficult situations during the offseason was superb, and his leadership and communication with players through preseason has earned him plenty of respect within the locker room. So what can we expect from Robinsons team? The Whitecaps coach has made no secret of the fact that he wants to play an attractive entertaining style of soccer. He has also said he wont be afraid to give youth a chance. Robinsons squad is young, but with experience in key areas throughout the team. In fact there is a strong veteran presence down the spine of the team with David Ousted in goal, Jay DeMerit and Andy OBrien at the back, Nigel Reo Coker in midfield and Kenny Miller up front. The Whitecaps have made some strong additions in the offseason but the biggest question mark is whether they will be able to replace the league-leading 22 goals scored by Camilo. There wont be one person who shoulders the responsibility of filling the void left by the Brazilian, it will need to be a team effort, and the way the squad has been built should help that to happen. Uruguyan duo Sebastian Fernandez and Nicolas Mezquida have shown evidence of their creativity and technical ability during preseason, and the expected arrival of Chilean attacking midfielder Pedro Morales from Spanish side Malaga will be a massive piece of the puzzle. Vancouver already has quality in attack. Keeping Kenny Miller fit is key for the Caps. It will also be interesting to see the development of youngsters Kekuta Manneh, Darren Mattocks, Erik Hurtado, Omar Salgado and Russell Teibert. All five of those players have the ability to contribute significantly to the Whitecaps attacking play. The Whitecaps added former MLS All-Star Steven Beitashour at right back to replace the retired YP Lee and have options in the central defensive positions with DeMerit and OBrien likely to be favoured to open the season, but Carlyle Mitchell, Johnny Leveron and draft pick Christian Dean all capable of stepping in at any time. With Carl Robinson likely to play a 4-2-3-1 formation, the two defensive midfield players will need to protect the back four but also start a lot of the Whitecaps play moving forward. On his day, Nigel Reo-Coker can be one of the top midfielders in the league, but Robinson will want to see more consistency from the Englishman this season dictating the play and getting box to box. One of the Whitecaps big offseason additions was young Argentine midfielder Matias Laba who arrived from Toronto FC. Hes a superb signing who will commplement the qualities of Reo Coker.dddddddddddd Laba is a destroyer. He breaks up the play and gets it going again in an effective manner. The defensive midfield pairing of Reo Coker and Laba could be particularly strong for the Whitecaps this season. Despite my view that the overall squad is better than a year ago, the Whitecaps wont find it easy to achieve their goal of making the playoffs in a Western Conference that is packed with quality. Last year, Vancouver improved on their points total from a year earlier, but didnt make it to the postseason. They improved, but not enough because the other teams around them had made bigger strides. This time around, the Whitecaps have made some significant changes. It might take them time to settle into their new identity, but it should be a fun ride. TSN Soccer analyst Jason deVos weighs in on how the Whitecaps will succeed or fail during the 2014 season. Jason deVos: Vancouver Whitecaps will succeed if… …the young guns come out firing. Rookie head coach Carl Robinson has a squad full of talented youngsters. Russell Teibert, Kekuta Manneh, Gershon Koffie, Omar Salgado, Darren Mattocks, Nicolás Mezquida, Matías Laba, Erik Hurtado, Andre Lewis and Sam Adekugbe are all under the age of 23. With youth comes inconsistency; an amazing performance one week, followed up by a flat one the next. If Robinson can get the young players to find a measure of consistency, the Whitecaps will fare far better than many predict this season. The reason for that is that this team is quick - and I mean, lightning fast. Mattocks, Manneh and Hurtado are whippets, and will win races against virtually every player in MLS. If the experienced players in the squad - Nigel Reo-Coker, Andy OBrien and Jay DeMerit - can shepherd the young players along the right path, the Whitecaps are going to surprise a few people this season. Vancouver Whitecaps will fail if… …they show up one week and not the next. Succeeding in professional soccer is all about finding a level of consistency from week to week. Reliability comes with experience - something that is severely lacking from this squad of players. The onus is on Robinson to set the standards of performance that he expects from all of his players. Experienced campaigners like Reo-Coker, OBrien and DeMerit wont be the issue - they know what they need to do to succeed in the game, and will rarely dip below a 7 out of 10 performance. It is the young players that need to learn this. They need to learn that you cannot turn it on one week, then not bother showing up the next. That will be Robinsons biggest challenge this season - getting a consistent level out of his talented crop of youngsters. If he can do that, this will be an exciting season for Whitecaps fans. If not, the Whitecaps will again fail to make the playoffs. 2013 finish: 13-12-9 (seventh in Western Conference). Did not qualify for MLS Cup playoffs.
