    The Stampeders jumped out to a 22 -3 lead over BC, before the Lions scored 15 points in the fourth quarter to make the pre-season game close, 23-18. National QB Andrew Buckley went 6/8 for 59 yards but was not able to score as he battled former Argo Mitchell Gale and rookie Rick Stanzi for the backup QB spot. First string QB Bo Levi Mitchell sat out the game Jonathon Jennings looked rusty, going 3/8 for 28 yards while Lulay went 4/5 and Keith Price and Alex Ross each led their team to a TD.

    It looks like eighth round draft choice (70th overall), Richard Sandani, has got a good chance of making the team at least the PR when final cuts are announced Saturday. He caught a 24 yard TD pass in the last game and guest coach and former Stampeder Jabari Arthur has noted that Sandani has a frame as good as any National receiver in the league and consequently a very high ceiling, although he needs some polishing.

    Was a nice TD grab on a beauty throw; but Sadani is maybe in tough to make the Stamps receiving corps - with Lamar Durant, Anthony Parker and Juwan Brescacin there as NIs; Brescacin really impressed me with some nice grabs that game and he made a couple of outstanding grabs last year in limited action; another big target receiver - and was once rated highly in the receiver class for the NFL draft. Durant & Brescacin could both probably start for the Stumps and IMO both are capable of big CFL seasons - not if they only pencil in one NI receiver as starters there though ?

    Calgary has annouced its cuts with DL Ben Aguilar and former Argo QB Mitchell Gale being the most notable. The Stampeders have also announced that three players are going back to school (something no other team has done at the time of their final cuts): Nationals WR Richard Sandani,DL Alexandre Gagnon, and DB Adam Laurensee.

    I bet D'Aguilar catches on somewhere else.

    I doubt it, if he does, it'll be passport related.

    Despite being signed after four practices had already been completed, LB Jameer Thurman has made the most talent laden team in the CFL.

    The former Indiana State linebacker left quite an impression in his first game playing three-down football, racking up two sacks and causing havoc whenever he was on the field when the Stamps defeated the BC Lions 23-18 in the pre-season kickoff.
    Making plays is nothing new for Thurman – he finished his college career with the Sycamores with 340 tackles, 11th all-time in the school’s record books. ...

    Head coach Dave Dickenson took notice of his strong performances throughout camp and sees the potential for a long CFL run for the 22-year-old.
    “He makes things look easy and he’s growing,” Dickenson said. “He’s a very fluid and smooth athlete and could be a real good answer at linebacker for a long time.”

    Charleston Hughes 3 sacks against the Roughriders put him back in the race for the league lead in sacks now that the Argos Victor Butler, who has seven sacks, is injured. Hughes is now tied for second with four. It also shows how outstanding Butler has been.

    Deron Mayo, who was Calgary's nominee for Most Outstanding Defensive Player in 2015 but suffered a severe leg injury in 2016 that has kept him out of the lineup, is on the verge of coming back.

    The strong just keep getting stronger.
    LB Devon Mayo and National DT Junior Turner are set to play their first game for Calgary against BC this week after knee injuries in 2016 meant they were not available until now.
    The Stampeders have also added a DB with NFL experience that they have been after for some time to their practice roster - Mario Butler.
