    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 21, 2014

    The Breakdown: West 51-yd TD

    Joe West breaks down his first TD of the 2014 season — a 51-yarder from Bo Levi Mitchell against Winnipeg.

    Calgary Stampeders star does it with a little help from his friends

    U.S. President Barack Obama can only dream of having a security force this air-tight.
    With his Secret Service not exactly instilling confidence, maybe someone at the White House should get on the horn and call John Hufnagel.
    Not that the Calgary Stampeders GM/head coach would be willing to part with any of his beefy bodyguards.

    Calgary Stampeders don't plan to slow down after clinching CFL West
    They’re 13-2.
    And unsatisfied.
    That might be a key factor behind the Calgary Stampeders’ success this season.
    Players and coaches alike are always searching for the next challenge.
    Defensive end Shawn Lemon sat in his locker after helping the Red & White beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers 33-23 Saturday night, and he wasn’t exactly ready to pop the bubbly.

    Calgary Stampeders RB Jon Cornish back atop rushing chart
    What was once little more than a pipedream is now almost a foregone conclusion.
    When Calgary Stampeders running back Jon Cornish was placed on the six-game injured list earlier in the season with a concussion, it seemed obvious his two-year reign atop the CFL rushing charts would come to an end.
    Fast-forward a couple of months and there’s Cornish comfortably leading the league. Again.

    Stamps continue to increase trust in receiver Anthony Parker
    A day after a busy win in Winnipeg, Anthony Parker could feel every one of those times he touched the ball.
    And he loves it.
    During a 33-23 victory over the Blue Bombers, the fourth-year Calgary Stampeders receiver was a major part of the game plan, and he delivered with eight catches for 76 yards and another rushing attempt for 12 yards.

    Weyburn’s best put small Saskatchewan town on the map
    Weyburn, Saskatchewan, 120 km southeast of Regina, has produced PGA golfer Graham Delaet, hockey coaching legend Jack Shupe, two outstanding City of Medicine Hat commissioners Bob Wanner and Ron Webb, and football players, including in the Lancaster-Reed era Henry Dorsch, and now, all-Canadians Brett Jones and Brendon LaBatte. Both will play Friday when the Roughriders and Stampeders hook up in Calgary.
    In what is a probably a first for any small community, two citizens won the league’s most outstanding player awards. Saskatchewan Guard Brendon LaBatte won the 2013 Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award, while Calgary centre Brett Jones took home the Most Outstanding Rookie Award, a first for an offensive lineman. LaBatte made All-Canadian for the second time, Jones was named to the Western Division dream team.
