ACTIVE TACKLE LEADERS
- Two active players are in the Top-21 in all-time tackles: Adam Bighill (714) is 10th and Simoni Lawrence (586) sits 21st – one tackle behind Dante Marsh for 20th.
- Bighill needs nine tackles to surpass Kevin Eiben (722) for 9th.
- At Lawrence’s current pace, he could reach as high as 17th on the list, passing his head coach, Orlondo Steinauer (18th – 604).
- With 14 tackles, Lawrence would become the 20th player to reach the 600-mark.
- Other players outside the Top-21 who are active include Toronto’s Charleston Hughes (512) and Henoc Muamba (508).
- BC’s Michael Reilly is on pace to throw for 3,720 yards.
- Montreal’s William Stanback is on pace to rush for 1,442 yards. At his current pace, he would accumulate the most rushing yards in a season since 2013 when Jon Cornish ran for 1,813.
- Despite the shortened season, Vernon Adams Jr. is on pace for 26 touchdown passes, which would surpass his personal best of 24 set in 2019.
