Walt Disney World - Milt Stegall

Milt Stegall has been a busy man since retiring back in February.

The former star receiver with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers has been preparing for his upcoming gig as a guest analyst for TSN’s CFL broadcasts. He also put together a receivers camp for college and high school students in May.

Besides keeping up with the same daily workout routine as when he was still playing, Stegall is also planning a summer vacation with his family. He told The Canadian Press that he plans on taking advantage of the Disney World trip the Blue Bombers gave him for breaking Allen Pitts‘ all-time receiving yardage record. He also has plans to maybe head to Niagara Falls in the coming months.

Stegall’s first game behind the mic will be on July 11 when Saskatchewan visits Toronto.
