Reporter Jeremy Fraser did a great job writing the very detailed article about the University College of Cape Breton Capers varsity football season in 1990 (“One season touchdown,” Cape Breton Post, Nov. 20).

I found it very interesting to read as well as the follow-up article about the Capers player, Mark Pearce, who went on to play in the Canadian Football League (“Stepping stone to success,” Cape Breton Post, Nov. 21), and I am not really a sports fan.

I was surprised when I came to the part about Pearce being trained as a blacksmith by the time he was 15. How smart. Now he’s a successful businessman out west.

I was telling my husband all about the article.

Well done, Jeremy!
