  1. There is a lot of mystery at this point on who will be the Saskatchewan Roughriders starting quarterback when they begin the season on June 11 in Edmonton. Entering his third year with the Roughriders, Mason Fine is looking forward to competing for the position when the team begins training camp this May. The Riders quarterback was a guest on Tuesday’s edition of the SportsCage with Michael Ball. Fine said his goal entering the 2022 season was to build off his rookie campaign as he continued to make the transition to the professional game. At the beginning of his sophomore year with the Riders entrenched as the backup, the North Texas product was hoping to provide Saskatchewan with a solid backup plan at quarterback. He felt that he got off on the right foot. “I think I had a great training camp to start off the season and I really think I took some strides there with all of the reps that I got. ” Last season, Fine saw the majority of his action in three games. He came in relief for Cody Fajardo against the BC Lions on August 19 and was the team’s starting quarterback for their final two games of the season against the Calgary Stampeders. The QB ended the season with 690 passing yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions. The 25-year-old hopes to take his game to another new level in 2023. “I think I made great strides from 2021 to 2022, now I need to take a bigger step forward and get better overall as a quarterback.” read more: https://www.620ckrm.com/2023/01/25/308260/#.Y9Ge12lJczd.twitter
  2. Mason Fine can tell you about his place on this Saskatchewan Roughriders team. But on this National Indigenous People’s Day, he’s especially proud of his background. Fine is a member of the Cherokee Nation in Oklahoma. Growing up, Fine says he was well-supported by his community. It was when he entered college at the University of North Texas that he first realized how important his Indigenous identity was. “In college, I became aware of how unique and how awesome it was and that developed a passion into being a role model and being someone in the community who can represent the state of Texas and Oklahoma and my hometown and Cherokee Nation,” Fine said. “That’s when I became aware of how much of an impact I wanted to make in the future.” During his time in college, Fine received an overwhelming amount of support from the Cherokee Nation back in Oklahoma. They made and sold shirts, covered him in newspapers and praised him throughout social media. “They really brought more awareness towards the Indigenous community and culture which was awesome.” Fine says those college experiences prepared him for his time in Saskatchewan.

  4. Mason Fine’s signing with the Saskatchewan Roughriders came with a geography lesson. A former star quarterback with the University of North Texas Mean Green, Fine was looking to expand on his knowledge of the CFL and where he was headed after signing a three-year contract with the Roughriders. “I’m kind of a geography guy, so I wanted to see what type of geographical features were around me and stuff like that,” Fine said from his home in Peggs, Okla. “Then I Googled the Roughriders and I looked at the stadium. I also looked at the coaches, what players are there, the history of the Roughriders and the CFL as a whole.” Fine, however, already had some knowledge of the CFL while playing college football in Denton, Texas. “I’ve watched some of it on TV, so I know most of the teams up there,” said Fine, 23. “I know the CFL and I know it has been around a while. It was always something I was interested in if it came to be. I know there’s a bunch of different rules, the field is a little bit bigger and the football is shaped a little bit differently. I hope to become knowledgeable in that.” read more: https://leaderpost.com/sports/football/cfl/saskatchewan-roughriders/qb-mason-fine-looking-forward-to-making-jump-from-mean-green-to-green-and-white
