In addressing the media Sargent admitted that it may have taken him a little longer than in previous seasons to reach a decision as to whether to return next summer. He credited an exciting group of athletes that are set to return to the team in 2015 and a team, that on paper, should be very competitive. He also admitted that having an opportunity to host the Canadian Championship at the newly renovated Saskatoon Minor Football Field was a key motivator.
