Kyle Bolton Signs with Winnipeg Blue Bombers of CFL

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – Former Baker University wide receiver Kyle Bolton signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League (CFL) this week.

The Blue Bombers have just wrapped up its preseason portion of its schedule and will open up the regular season on Thursday, June 26 to take on Toronto.

One of Winnipeg's national scouts, Drew Morris, contacted Baker head coach Mike Grossner to see if he had any talent at Baker that could translate at the CLF level, he gave him information of former Baker running back Dillon Baxter and Bolton.

Morris witnessed Bolton in a tryout and was impressed with the San Diego, Calif., native's speed and signed him to the Blue Bombers.

"I'm very excited for him, that's the rout I think he should take, playing in the CFL," said Grossner. "I hope he shines out there against great competition. The sky is the limit for him. We all know he has great speed and I hope he has a great year."
