SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 3

SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 3

Cody Fajardo, Eric Rogers and Ja’Gared Davis named Shaw CFL Top Performers

TORONTO (July 3, 2019) – Cody Fajardo, Eric Rogers and Ja’Gared Davis were named the Shaw CFL Top Performers of the Week for Week 3 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 | CODY FAJARDO | SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS

In the Roughriders’ home opener on Canada Day, Cody Fajardo brought the fireworks. In his second career start, he led the team to its first victory of the season – a 32-7 win over the Argonauts.

The Nevada product completed 24-of-31 passes (77.4%) for a career-high 430 yards and three total touchdowns (2 passing,1 rushing) against his former team.

At the end of the first quarter, Fajardo connected with Kyran Moore for a 98-yard touchdown – the longest Roughriders touchdown reception since 2002.

In the second, he found Cory Watson who willed his way into the endzone from five yards out for his second passing major of the game. He called his number later in the quarter to cap off the drive by sneaking in for a one-yard score.

This season, the Brea, Calif., native has completed 73.2% of his passes while accumulating 856 yards with seven total touchdowns (4 passing, 3 rushing) and no interceptions.

REC | ERIC ROGERS | CALGARY STAMPEDERS

Eric Rogers played a pivotal part in the Stampeders’ thrilling comeback victory on Saturday against the BC Lions, 36-32 at McMahon Stadium.

Rogers recorded nine receptions for 100 yards and a trio of touchdowns, including the game-winning major.

The 6’3” receiver out of Glendora, Calif., caught his first touchdown in the second quarter from Bo Levi Mitchell from three-yards out. His second came in the fourth when Mitchell pump-faked and found Rogers over the middle for the 42-yard score. His final touchdown reception came with 31 seconds remaining in the game – after Rogers recovered an offside kick, Nick Arbuckle found the Cal Lutheran alum in the back of the endzone to complete the comeback.

The game marked Rogers’s 8th 100+ yard effort in the CFL. This season, Rogers has tallied 13 receptions for 143 yards and three touchdowns.

DL | JA’GARED DAVIS | HAMILTON TIGER-CATS

Ja’Gared Davis played a big role in a Tiger-Cats’ defence which only allowed 10 points en route to 41-10 win over Montreal at Tim Hortons Field.

The former Southern Methodist Mustang tied a career-high with three sacks in a single-game while adding seven defensive tackles, a tackle for a loss and for good measure, a pass knockdown.

The defensive lineman’s first sack came in the opening quarter when he brought down Vernon Adams Jr. for a 12-yard loss. His other two came in the fourth: another against Adams Jr. for a five-yard loss, and one on Matthew Shiltz which sent the Alouettes back three yards. Each of his sacks resulted in Montreal punting the ball.

Through three games, Davis has recorded 14 defensive tackles and three sacks.
