1 on 1 with cornerback Kabion Ento following the Montreal Alouettes 28-24 Grey Cup Victory over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
We talked yesterday about your transition to the three-down game. And today, you have had a knockdown in the end zone and an interception in the end zone. How do you feel right now?
“I mean, I feel amazing. I mean, we just won the Grey Cup. I don’t even know what to say right now. Honestly, I’m just happy for my teammates from the Quebec area and from Montreal, I know this is really big for them. And I told Marc today. I said, I’m playing for you. Playing for my guys, Copeland, Tyson Copeland today too, man. I want to do it for them. I know how much it means to them, so That’s what it’s about.”
When you woke up today, how did you honestly see this game going?
“Like this. I thought it was gonna I wanted us to win by a lot more, but it was like this.”
I’m not gonna lie, to be honest, I predicted Winnipeg to win by a few points, but that’s only because I was on the fence, and I predicted Montreal to lose to Winnipeg by that score back in June. So I always believed in the team.
“Yeah. I understand. We understand. We understood what we were up against. We understood that a lot of people didn’t pick us to win. We understood that we lost to them 2 times. We understood that the last time we played them the score was like 44 to 17, but we didn’t care. That’s not what we care about. We care about today. Another opportunity today, and it shows.”
I noticed a lot of times you are 1 on 1 with Dalton Schoen. Could you describe the difficulty of those matchups a little bit?
“Great receiver. I mean, obviously, to be honest scored on me last time we played him, but he’s a great receiver. You love those type of matchups cause you know, those the matchups where, honestly in this league, and anywhere, you get paid when you’re holding one of the best receivers on the team. So I was happy to be guarding him, I knew it was gonna be a challenge, and I just have to make sure I locked in.”
