SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 10

SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 10

Vernon Adams Jr., Trevor Harris and Reggie Begelton named Shaw CFL Top Performers

TORONTO (August 20, 2019) – Vernon Adams Jr., Trevor Harris and Reggie Begelton were named the Shaw CFL Top Performers of the Week for Week 10 of the CFL’s 2019 season.

The three players were chosen by a panel of judges who independently send their selections to the CFL head office. The panel includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.

QB | VERNON ADAMS JR. | MONTREAL ALOUETTES

Alouettes quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. guided Montreal to a thrilling 40-34 overtime victory over the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday night.

Adams finished with a career-high 389 passing yards, a passing percentage of 64% (32-of-50) and 38 rushing yards while notching four touchdowns (2 pass, 2 rush). The win was Montreal’s first at McMahon Stadium since 2009.

Early in the second half, the Oregon product found Jake Wieneke across the middle for a 15-yard score and the ensuing two-point convert knotted the game at 14-a-piece. His second touchdown pass came via Eugene Lewis with under a minute left in the fourth quarter. Following another successful two-point convert and an onside kick recovery, Adams orchestrated a drive that led to a game-tying 27-yard field goal by Boris Bede to force overtime.

The native of Pasadena, Calif., scored one-yard touchdown plunges on each of Montreal’s overtime possessions. The comeback victory erased Montreal’s 11-point deficit with 1:40 left in the fourth quarter.

This season, Adams has passed for 1,536 yards and rushed for 262 more en route to 14 touchdowns (7 pass, 7 rush). He was named a Shaw Top Performer of the Week for Week 5.

QB | TREVOR HARRIS | EDMONTON ESKIMOS

Trevor Harris wreaked havoc in Toronto on Friday night to help the Eskimos secure sole possession of second place in the West Division.

Harris passed for a season-high 420 yards, while converting 28-of-41 pass attempts and accounting for five touchdowns (3 passing, 2 rushing) in a 41-26 victory. It was his second game of the season with 400+ passing yards and his 34th career game throwing for 300+ yards.

Harris and the Esks came ready to play, scoring touchdowns on each of their first three drives. Midway through the opening quarter, he found Greg Ellingson for a four-yard major to put the Eskimos up 6-3. He spotted Ricky Collins in the second quarter for another four-yard score to extend Edmonton’s advantage to 20-9. With the Argonauts chipping away at the lead in the third, he connected with Ellingson for a spectacular catch to re-establish the visitors' 11-point lead.

The Waldo, Ohio, native also scored a pair of rushing majors, each from one yard out, for his first-career game with multiple rushing touchdowns.

This season, Harris leads the league with 3,051 yards and has passed for 13 touchdowns and rushed for six. He was named a Shaw Top Performer of the Week for Week 1, and a Shaw Top Performer of the Month in June.

WR | REGGIE BEGELTON | CALGARY STAMPEDERS

Despite a 40-34 setback in overtime, Calgary receiver Reggie Begelton had a stellar Saturday night against the visiting Montreal Alouettes.

He matched a career-high eight receptions for a personal-best 173 yards en route to a four receiving touchdown showing – one shy of the all-time record in a single game held by 2019 Canadian Football Hall of Fame inductee Ernie Pitts (1959).

Quarterback Nick Arbuckle and his receiver were in-sync throughout the game. In the first, Begelton took a pitch from his pivot and ran it in from 8-yards out for his first major of the day. The Lamar product put the Stampeders ahead 20-17 with a 56-yard touchdown reception early in the fourth. On the very next possession, the two connected again for a 69-yard touchdown to extend the home side’s lead to 27-17. His final touchdown off of a seven-yard strike opened the scoring in the extra frame.

The performance marked Begelton’s third 100+ receiving yard game of the year and the fifth of his CFL career.

Begelton leads Calgary in receiving yards (704) and receptions (49) this season and he currently sits third in the league in both categories.
