    Calgary Stampeders News Roundup for September 17, 2015


    Getting to know Brandon Tett

    DL/LS Brandon Tett joined the Stamps this week after being drafted by the team in the Supplemental Draft in July.

    Quick 6: DBs
    We ask DBs Joe Burnett and Jamar Wall some random questions to get to know them a little better.

    Stamps add horsepower as Cornish returns

    John Hufnagel could hardly stop smiling.
    It was Tuesday and the Stamps' head coach and general manager was answering questions about the return of star running back Jon Cornish. Back in practice this week for the first time since suffering a finger injury in a loss to the Ottawa REDBLACKS back on July 24, Cornish has been declared ready to play in Friday's tilt with the BC Lions at McMahon Stadium.
    “Jon looks good," said Hufnagel. "He kept himself in good shape. He made sure he was ready with his cardio and his strength for this day. It’s great to have Jon back on the field. He’s a great player and we need all the good players on the field we can get.

    Introduced this season, the TELUS #AllHeartStamps Patio has become a popular place to be during Stamps home games.
    Located in the north end zone, the TELUS #AllHeartStamps Patio provides a private field-level view of the game and can accommodate up to 180 people.
    The TELUS Patio is SOLD OUT (yet again!) for Friday’s game against the BC Lions.

    Calgary Stampeders Notebook: Veteran Juwan Simpson still expected to play Friday
    Since the start of the 2012 campaign, Juwan Simpson has missed just one game.
    That came earlier this season in Week 2 when the Calgary Stampeders travelled east without their middle linebacker and the Montreal Alouettes promptly rolled up 156 rushing yards.
    It made Wednesday’s practice scene slightly concerning, as Simpson hobbled to the sideline early in the session and, after being checked out by the training staff, shut it down for the rest of the day.

    Calgary Stampeders K Rene Paredes gaining confidence with every field goal
    Rene Paredes is back to the place where he’s spent most of his professional career.
    As one of the Canadian Football League’s elite kickers.
    On their way to the Grey Cup last season, the 2013 Most Outstanding Special Teams Player endured a trying few months and seemed to be one of the few question marks the Calgary Stampeders had on the roster.

    Calgary Stampeders' Junior Turner gets taste of life on other side of ball
    Watching his team play from the couch while he nursed a bruised hand over the weekend, Quinn Smith could only chuckle.
    On numerous occasions this season, the sophomore Calgary Stampeders defensive tackle has been forced to peel off his No. 90 jersey, pull on a less-familiar No. 68, and step into the fray along the offensive line.
    This time, however, it was teammate Junior Turner undergoing a wardrobe change during Saturday’s loss to the Edmonton Eskimos.

    Stamps not buying speculation of Lions mutiny
    Those rumours of inner strife. The claims that first-year head coach Jeff Tedford has lost the troops. That offensive co-ordinator George Cortez has lost the plot.
    That Andrew Harris is unhappy.
    That Manny Arceneaux is unhappy.
    That virtually everybody in orange and black this side of long-serving equipment guru Kato Kasuya has some kind of bone to pick, grievance to file, objection to raise.

    Stamps kicker Paredes finding his all-star stride again
    The number 73 might be considered a great golf score if you’re a duffer, but if you’re a guy who gets paid to drive a football through the uprights, that type of average is downright unremarkable.
    Rene Paredes knew it had to improve … drastically.
    “It’s been my worst percentage since I’ve been playing football,” the Calgary Stampeders’ kicker said of the 73.3 field goal percentage he recorded in 2014.
