    Anything would have been better than 2011.

    A CFL West Division all-star campaign was just the cherry on top for Calgary Stampeders punter Rob Maver.

    Following a lost season on the injury list two summers ago — he lasted just one game before going down with a quad problem — the 2010 first-round Canadian draft pick (fifth overall) just wanted to establish himself in ’12, his first campaign as a full-time punter.

    Consider that done.

    “Redemption,” Maver answers when asked how he’ll remember ’12. “Just the main thing was getting back out and playing and contributing in a positive way was the main thing I was happy about.

    “A year off from football — not to say I that I took things for granted before, but I developed a new appreciation for my job and just playing football.”

    The 27-year-old averaged 43.2 yards per punt, leading the CFL in net punting average at 36.2 yards. More importantly, the former University of Guelph boot-man, dropped 24 punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard-line, one off the CFL lead.
