    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for October 7, 2014

    PinkPower coming Oct. 24

    The annual PinkPower game to raise money and awareness for women's cancers research takes place on Oct. 24.

    Hufnagel: injury shouldn't keep Cornish out

    With the Stampeders on a bye week, head coach and GM John Hufnagel tells the morning show the injury to Jon Cornish shouldn't keep the running back out of next week's game.

    Stampeders, Cornish receive good news on knee injury

    The Calgary Stampeders received some good news on the knee injury to running back Jon Cornish on Monday.
    According to the Stampeders' official Twitter account, head coach John Hufnagel said that Cornish's injury is not serious and he expects the reigning Most Outstanding Player to be ready to play after the upcoming bye week.

    PinkPower is back

    The Stampeders Foundation and the Calgary Stampeder Football Club, in conjunction with the Canadian Cancer Society, are proud to announce the launch of the PinkPower campaign.
    PinkPower started as an initiative between the Canadian Cancer Society and the Stampeders in 2008 as part of a concerted effort to support the battle against women’s cancers and help raise awareness. Since its inception, the program has become a successful league-wide campaign with all nine CFL teams involved in their own markets. This initiative helps raise awareness about women’s cancers and ultimately raises money for research.

    This year, the Calgary Stampeders joined forces with the Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters with the goal of increasing awareness of the impact of men’s violence against women.
    Stampeders players will be delivering the message that violence against women is not acceptable and provide local youth with the tools to identify abusive situations and how to speak up and not be a bystander.

    Stamps' Cornish sets example for career after football
    For many young football players, Jon Cornish is the role model, thanks to his ability to run through opposing defences with ease.
    If Jack Fulton had his way, Cornish would be the model for how he’s rushing through his off-field career and not what he does on the field.
    A few years ago, Fulton started a company called Life Choice Dynamics, which aims at helping professional athletes, specifically CFL players, transition into their post-football careers.

    Riders are masters of the two-point conversion
    The two-point convert is usually a low percentage play. At least, that’s what Calgary Stampeders head coach John Hufnagel thought.
    So imagine his surprise when the Saskatchewan Roughriders pulled out three straight against his team Friday night, setting a CFL record in the process.
    Up until the Stamps used a pair of two-point converts to erase a 26-point deficit and beat the Toronto Argonauts Sept. 15 at McMahon Stadium, no one in the league was successful on a single two-point play.
