    Training camp - June 6


    The first full week of main camp wrapped up at McMahon Stadium on Saturday with a pair of practices under sunny skies.
    It also happened to be long-snapper Randy Chevrier’s 39th birthday. Chevrier is in his 15th season on pro football and this is his 16th camp — in 2002 he attended camps in the NFL (Cincinatti) and NFL Europe (Barcelona).
    When Chevrier attended his first camp in 2001, rookie quarterback Andrew Buckley was seven years old.

    It’s that time again Stamps fans, as the 2014 Grey Cup champions take to the field to prepare to defend their title as the best in the league.
    The journey begins with the always-exciting training camp as the coaches evaluate veterans and eager newcomers, all vying to don the white horse for the 2015 regular season.
    While the boys of summer have to prepare for the grind that is training camp, the fans can make preparations as well to get the most out of the training-camp experience to get up to speed in anticipation of a lot of cheering in the stands this season.

    After five seasons of CFL football, Shomari Williams is still in search of that elusive Grey Cup championship.
    Drafted first overall by Saskatchewan in 2010, Williams played three seasons in Regina before he was signed by the Tiger-Cats, only to return to Riderville one year later. Now proudly sporting Red and White, the Toronto product already has a good feeling about the 2015 campaign.

    “Ever since I came into the league, Calgary has always been one of the top organizations in the CFL,” said No. 33. “So being here is really special and I think if we can just keep the ball rolling from what they had last year — and I can help contribute to that — then we’ll win another Grey Cup.”

    Calgary Stampeders new defensive backs coach Kahlil Carter already knows the scheme
    It’s not uncommon to see a championship team raided by other clubs.
    Teams want proven winners.
    That extends to the coaching staff.
    Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel had to be pleased that he lost just one coach off his staff — defensive backs coach Tony Missick, who left to join the Saskatchewan Roughriders — after last November’s Grey Cup win.

    Calgary Stampeders wideout Marquay McDaniel happy to share the spotlight
    There’s been a lot of talk about the twin towers.
    And for good reason.
    Calgary Stampeders wideouts Jeff Fuller and Eric Rogers give the defending Grey Cup champions an electrifying pair that is going to turn opposing defensive co-ordinators into insomniacs.

    Calgary Stampeders Brandon Smith has been a CFL star for years
    The numbers suggest Brandon Smith had a breakout CFL season in 2014.
    His long-time Calgary Stampeders teammate Keon Raymond begs to differ.
    “I wouldn’t say so,” Raymond said. “He’s always been one of the top halfbacks in this league.
    “He just got noticed, but he’s been doing this for years. He’s just not a big interception guy like mysel, but he goes out and guards some of the top receivers.
