    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 10, 2014

    Jamboree at McMahon

    Hundreds of youngsters from around Southern Alberta dropped by McMahon Stadium this week for a flag football jamboree. Members of the Stamps were there to cheer them on.


    The Calgary Stampeders ask their fans to remember the less-fortunate members of the community who don’t have suitable winter wear as the club launches its 12th annual Share the Warmth coat drive in support of The Salvation Army.
    This year’s drive is once again supported by radio station Q107, Calgary’s Classic Rock — The Jeff & Sarah Show.
    The official collection will take place during the Nov. 1 game at McMahon Stadium as the Stamps play host to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers but fans can make donations prior to date by dropping coats off at the Q107 donation box on the second floor of Eau Claire Market (200 Barclay Parade SW).

    Stamps quarterback to guest coach peewees
    Stampeder quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell will be coming to Drumheller this Saturday to act as guest coach for the Drumheller Terrapins. Game time: 11 a.m.
    The Drumheller Terrapins will be led by CFL greatness this Saturday as the Calgary Stampeders come to visit during their home game.

    Drew Tate is Honorary Captain Saturday
    Former University of Iowa quarterback Drew Tate will serve as honorary captain when the Hawkeyes host Indiana on Saturday in Kinnick Stadium (11:01 a.m., ESPNU).
    Tate was a four-year letterman for the Hawkeyes from 2003-06, earning the starting quarterback position in each of his final three seasons. He has played professional football in Canada since 2007 and has been a member of the Calgary Stampeders since 2009.

    Green starting to make an impact
    Saskatchewan Roughriders defensive back Marshay Green is still shaking his head over his collision with a Calgary Stampeders receiver last Friday. It's not that Green is trying to shake off the cobwebs caused when he ran into Simon Charbonneau-Campeau, but rather that the play didn't go the way Green really wanted.
    The goal, Green confirmed Thursday, was an interception. The hit, which was simply a byproduct of Green's aggressiveness, resulted in the ball hitting the turf.
