BEGELTON, BERGMAN AND ROBERSON EARN CFL ALL-STAR HONOURS
Three members of the Calgary Stampeders have been voted to the Canadian Football League’s 2019 all-star team.
REC Reggie Begelton
OG Shane Bergman
CB Tre Roberson
All three players are first-time selections for the CFL all-star team.
The all-stars are determined by voting members of the Football Reporters of Canada (FRC) as well as one ballot from each team’s coaching staff.
Here is a closer look at the Stampeders’ league all-stars:
Reggie Begelton (receiver): Begelton earned the Stamps’ nomination for the CFL’s Most Outstanding Player award after becoming just the fifth player in franchise history to record at least 100 catches in a season. He finished the regular season second in the league with 102 receptions and third in both receiving yards (1,444) and receiving touchdowns (10). Begelton also had four carries for 38 yards and one score. He had at least three catches in all 17 games he played and had five 100-yard games as well as three other contests in which he amassed at least 90 receiving yards. Begelton was twice honoured as a CFL player of the week including for an Aug. 17 game against Montreal in which he recorded eight catches for 173 yards and four touchdowns.
Shane Bergman (offensive guard): Bergman, who was the Stamps’ nominee for Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman, made 17 starts at left guard. He helped the Stamps allow the second-fewest sacks in the CFL and was part of a Calgary offence that ranked in the top third in a number of categories.
Tre Roberson (cornerback): The second-year player is one of the top shutdown cornerbacks in the league and was the team’s nominee for the league’s Most Outstanding Defensive Player award. Roberson made 16 starts in 2019 and ranked second in the CFL with seven interceptions. Roberson scored two touchdowns – one on an interception return and one on a fumble recovery. Roberson also had 12 knockdowns – the third-highest total in the CFL – as well as 41 tackles. He twice was honoured as a CFL player of the week and his last-minute field-goal block on Sept. 14 preserved a win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
