Eskimos’ Sean Whyte on Lions: “Excited to put a beating on these guys”

Canadian kicker and punter Sean Whyte was on TSN 1260 in Edmonton and shared how much the Eskimos were looking forward to Friday night’s matchup with B.C.

The 31-year-old said: “Excited to put a beating on these guys.”

Edmonton did “beat” the Lions in Week 1 on the final play of the game, Whyte chipped a nine-yard field goal through the uprights for the winning points. That came after a 76-yard connection from Mike Reilly to Brandon Zylstra in the final minute.

Whyte has hit 10-of-11 field goals (long 55 yards) and 7-of-9 extra points to go along with 26 punts for 1,074 yards (41.3 average) this season.

The highly anticipated tilt could come down to Whyte’s leg again.
