The Vancouver Stealth knew they were getting a great athlete when they drafted Tyler Digby in the third round of the National Lacrosse League’s 2013 entry draft. The expansion Ottawa RedBlacks of the Canadian Football League thought the same when they drafted Digby in the fourth round. So what’s the 6-foot-3, 240-pound right-hander going to do? “Could I walk away from football? I could, but I don’t know if I’m quite ready to give it up,” Digby, who just finished his senior NCAA football season at Robert Morris University, told The Province at a Stealth camp session over the weekend. “I think it’s almost time to pick a sport here. I’m just trying to delay it a little bit more, live the best of both worlds as long as aI can.” Can ya blame the guy? He’s got a problem a lot of us would love to have. As for the Stealth, they say they’re OK with Digby playing both but there’s no word on what the RedBlacks think.
