    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 16, 2013

    Chris Randle of the Stampeders
    Everyday athletes can learn how to be better from our professional heroes in Calgary. And one of the newer Stampeders is a good example of how to make big plays, while at the same time respect a team concept. Grant Pollock reports.

    Thanks to the generosity of Stampeders fans, a record total of 4,088 coats has been collected in the 2013 Share the Warmth program to benefit the Salvation Army.
    In addition the record number of jackets collected at the Oct. 11 home game against the BC Lions, at the Q107 donation box at Eau Claire Market and through local school initiatives, more than $1,900 in cash was donated.

    Calgary Stampeders' Maurice Price to check football market
    It’s been an eventful season for Maurice Price.
    It’s expected to be an even more eventful off-season for the Calgary Stampeders wideout.
    With free agency looming, the 28-year-old deep-threat hasn’t ruled out a return to the NFL, where he spent his first five years as a pro bouncing around six different organizations.

    Nik Lewis hopes to return to Calgary Stampeders before season's end
    Simon Sleepwalker shed the crutches.
    Nikelo Dymes discarded the walking boot.
    And slowly, but surely, Calgary Stampeders star slotback Nik Lewis — with all of his aliases in tow — is making his way back from the broken left ankle and torn ligaments the 31-year-old CFL receiver suffered in mid-August.

    Calgary Stampeders wary of deep-threat big-play receivers of Edmonton Eskimos
    One is an accident.
    Two is a trend.
    Three is a problem.
    When it comes to the Calgary Stampeders secondary, they’re hoping to avoid a trend this week against the Edmonton Eskimos (7 p.m., TSN, News Talk 770), after giving up a handful of big plays in their CFL Week 16 win over the B.C. Lions.

    Stamps offensive lineman Federkeil nears return from groin injury
    In spite of the last five weeks that have been admittedly a bit of a drag, this season can truly be termed a success for Dan Federkeil.
    “I’ve definitely played a lot more than I thought I was going to,” admitted the first-year Calgary Stampeder offensive lineman. “Everything came back fairly quickly for me, so that was good. Originally coming into training camp, I wasn’t really expecting to be a starter this year. I thought it would take longer. But it’s been a blast. It’s been fun.” Stampeders offensive lineman/9040114/story.html

    Rick Campbell is a prime candidate to be head coach of the Edmonton Eskimos next season
    Rick Campbell throws the proverbial procedure flag on anyone talking in factual tones about his impending move to Edmonton to take over as head coach of the flailing Eskimos.
    Sure, he’s an Edmonton boy through-and-through, a graduate of Harry Ainlay Composite High School. And sure, he aspires to one day become the No. 1 man on the sidelines for a Canadian Football League club. Campbell prime candidate head/9040119/story.html

    Stamps notes: Forzani exits practice early and the signs aren’t promising
    Just when things were starting to look up for snake-bitten wide receiver Johnny Forzani, Tuesday happened to come along.
    Forzani, slowly getting back into practice mode with the Calgary Stampeders after a year of being on the sidelines with a nasty ankle injury, called it a day early during the second practice of the week and it doesn’t sound at all promising. notes Forzani exits practice/9040117/story.html
