The 24 year old Elliot Graham signed on with the team in 2021; he was selected during the fourth round of the 2021 draft by the Stamps. He has seen some action out on the field and significant action at that; enough to make quite the impression it would seem.
With a slight restructuring in that QB position moving forward for the Stamps aside, it would seem that the trend in the CFL for most teams for players and coaching staff that we’re seeing early on—essentially most teams keeping the status quo intact as we’ve seen in recent news—the Stamps are showing that they are thinking of doing pretty much just that moving forward, which is of course smart.
(This trend may change, although there are already some major changes to rosters already, but still…as always time will tell. It is safe to say that there are quite a few constants that are remaining when looking at the league in its entirety…)
The team quite obviously worked well together in the last portion of the 2022 season and big changes right now perhaps wouldn’t be the best idea. Of course it’s still early to tell what the plan is moving forward, but these movements in stability seem like a surefire way to get the ball rolling for the off-season…stick with what works, right?
Graham, who has be officially re-signed with the team, as was reported by stampeders.com, appeared in nine regular season games for the Stamps in the 2022 season. Four special teams tackles and 1 defensive stop was recorded during the aforementioned season.
The Calgary Stampeders go on a turkey run…
As it turns out the Calgary Stampeders will be doing right by tradition and will be collecting Turkeys for the Airdrie Food Bank this year. Corey Mace started the drive and he oversaw the drive for nine years, as was also reported by CTV.
Mace of course is currently the defensive coordinator for the Toronto Argonauts, the 2022 Grey Cup Champions. He took to Twitter in a moving gesture, showing just how much the drive still means to him despite his relocation.
“To all my good friends back in YYC…Please don’t forget about the turkey season. Although I’m out east, it was never about my family. It was about you and yours. Still give the love you always have for your neighbors in need.”Twitter
The Stampeders would also make a statement on Twitter:
“The Calgary Stampeders will be collecting turkeys and non-perishable food items for the benefit of the @airdriefoodbank…
The event continues the holiday tradition established by former Stampeders player and coach @CoreyJMace!”Twitter
As the aforementioned CTV report also states, the drive goes down on Saturday between 10 and 2 PM, where there will be players from the team, signing autographs for anyone who brings a turkey and non perishable food items. All that is collected will be delivered to the Airdrie Food Bank. So come one, come all, and do your part to help those in need.
