  • Rams almost make Rana's wildest dream come true - Sportsnet.ca
    out on the next possession and the Rams high powered offence went dry Instead of winning a title on their home court the Rams lost their chance to play for one But Rana couldn t help but think about how close they came to pulling off what was unfathomable even five years ago I take it personally that this event was a special one for Toronto and tonight was a special night he said I don t know if we ve had a CIS basketball game like that in Toronto in a long time to see this type of support to see this kind of energy for Ryerson When I got here we d have 150 people in the game and we d have to beg them to come To see this kind of support from our students and our community is pretty special I just wish we could have won and kept it going On Sunday afternoon it will be the Gee Gees trying to complete their own vision quest as they meet the top ranked Carleton Ravens for the national championship The Ravens are gunning for a fifth straight title and 11th in 13 years under head coach Dave Smart Carleton downed Victoria 83 74 behind 29 points 13 assists and eight rebounds from All Canadian Phil Scrubb who along with his brother and fellow All Canadian Thomas will be striving for their fifth national title in five tries Sorry this video is not available in your country region Last season Ottawa lost to them in Finals To avenge that loss they ll need to slay CIS basketball s biggest scariest dragon But that s the Gee Gees thing Why who re we playing joked Gee Gees head coach James Derouin who freely admits that in the five years he s been at Ottawa he s only ever been concerned with beating Carleton If that led to a national championship so much the better They had their chance last year but couldn t pull it off in Ottawa at the Canadian Tire Centre when Carleton won 79 67 The two teams have split their past four meetings If the Ravens have an edge it might be that they were at their hotel watching the game on television as Ryerson pushed the Gee Gees to the limit But Derouin wasn t having it The short turnaround was something we went through last year I ll be honest last year we were unprepared for it we got stuck at the Canadian Tire Centre late and there was all kinds of problems getting food and then we played even earlier last year said Derouin We re prepared for this situation we re prepared to play Carleton we re prepared to make the finals and we re ready to go luckily we know the opponent we know them pretty well Ottawa Carleton has all the makings of a dream final for the national championship Just not the one Roy Rana had in

  • CIS Top 50 football players of Vanier Cup era - Sportsnet.ca
    s Ontario single season touchdown record and turned the humble farm boy into one of the most memorable rushers in the history of Canadian university football Jim Young Running Back Queen s 1962 65 Nicknamed Dirty 30 Young attended the same high school as Russ Jackson Westdale SS in Hamilton ON before going on to a prolific career with the Gaels He was a three time OQIFC All Star and was named All Canadian in 1963 Young was drafted in the first round by the Argos in 1965 but signed with the Minnesota Vikings upon graduation He stayed with the Vikings under head coach Bud Grant for two seasons before becoming one of only a few players to ever be traded by an NFL team to a CFL team The Vikings dealt Young to the B C Lions for quarterback Joe Kapp in 1966 Miles Gorrell Defensive Lineman Ottawa 1975 77 A mountain of a man Gorrell was another integral part of the Gee Gees 1975 Vanier Cup championship team A young man of that largeness shouldn t be able to move like that plus he had a mean streak He was a big man that could move like a cat with quick feet and passion for the game Miles was a game changer teammate and Canadian Football Hall of Fame running back Neil Lumsden said Gorrell was named an All Canadian in 1976 and 1977 and won Ottawa s team MVP award in 1977 which speaks to his value to the Gee Gees during his time with the program Dave Sapunjis Slotback Western 1986 89 About the only thing Sapunjis didn t have going for him was good timing He played for us when we threw at most 18 to 20 passes a game said former Western Mustangs coach Larry Haylor In today s game he would catch 10 to 15 passes a game Despite the fact he played in a run first system Sapunjis still managed to rack up 1 112 receiving yards during his four seasons at Western While the slotback benefited from great athletic ability what really separated Sapunjis was the way he could fixate on the ball If that pigskin was thrown anywhere in his direction it found its way to his hands David could close to the ball like none other Haylor said Credit Bob Cameron Quarterback Punter Acadia 1974 77 A quarterback from Hamilton Ontario who happened to hold a wicked boot as well Cameron threw passes and kicked punts for the Acadia Axemen during the school s dominance of Canadian college football on the East Coast in the 1970s Cameron s teams won three straight conference championships and made back to back Vanier Cup appearances in 1976 and 77 Cameron was selected to the all conference team four times won the 1977 Hec Crighton Trophy and eventually played 23 seasons in the CFL with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers as a punter winning three Grey Cups Pierre Vercheval Offensive Lineman Western 1984 87 Thank goodness Pierre Vercheval s parents let him switch high schools otherwise he would never have starred for Western or have gone on to a 14 year CFL career As a Grade 11 student Vercheval was inspired by CFL and NFL games he watched on TV but attending a school in Quebec City that didn t have a football program And so Vercheval transferred to Trois Rivieres to play with the Diablos And it was while watching Western play UBC in the 1982 Vanier Cup with his Diablos that the big offensive lineman knew he wanted to be a Mustang Vercheval starred on the field a six foot two 272 pound lineman who played at Western from 1984 87 and won the J P Metras Trophy as the top lineman in Canadian university football his final season At Western the future Canadian football Hall of Famer and two time Grey Cup champion also learned to speak English Leroy Blugh Defenisve Lineman Bishop s 1985 88 A Grey Cup winner who played 15 years in the CFL Blugh current defensive line coach for the Ottawa Redblacks first got noticed as a defensive lineman with Bishop s back in the late 1980s Born in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines he grew up in Napanee ON before moving to Sherbrooke QC for school The six foot two 232 pound lineman is still remembered for his outstanding 1988 season with the Gaiters in which he tallied 63 tackles and 12 quarterback sacks Still regarded by many as the greatest Gaiter of all time Blugh returned to Bishop s in 2005 serving as head coach of the football team until 2010 Leroy Blugh during his time with the Gaiters Phil Cote in action at the 2000 Vanier Cup Kevin Frayer CP Phil Cote Quarterback Ottawa 1996 2000 If you want to know what kind of a legacy Phil Cote left look no further than his CIS swan song at the 2000 Vanier Cup in front of nearly 20 000 at Toronto s SkyDome The Ottawa Gee Gees quarterback was already playing on a bum ankle but still managed to post a near 90 completion rate en route to three passing touchdowns two rushing touchdowns and most importantly his firs Vanier Cup title avenging a loss in the 97 championship game The Gee Gee s program had carved a legacy off the great 80s teams featuring legends like Neil Lumsdun and Rocky DiPietro But behind his heroics Cote and the program established a new identity solidifying their own lasting legacy of Gee Gee s football Mike Emery Linebacker UBC 1979 82 The 1982 UBC Thunderbirds were dominant in every sense of the word They went undefeated 12 0 often obliterating their competition en route to a 39 14 Vanier Cup victory Emery s steady but standout play at linebacker was a fundamental element of a historic squad that saw five players drafted into the first round of the CFL Emery was one of them selected third overall by Saskatchewan His standout college career included two consecutive Presidents Trophy honours for top defensive player in the country making him one of only two CIS players to accomplish the incredible feat Linden Gaydosh Defensive Lineman Calgary 2009 12 Gaydosh is a physical player even by defensive lineman standards with the ability to consistently overpower opponents His six foot four 300 pound frame made him a run stopping force with the Calgary Dinos The 2009 CIS Rookie of the Year has said the most memorable moment of his university career was losing to Queen s in the 2009 Vanier Cup because it motivated him to improve Gaydosh did just that as he played like a man possessed over the next three seasons and the Peace River Alta native was drafted first overall in the 2013 CFL Draft by the Hamilton Tiger Cats Before signing with the Ticats he had a brief stint in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers and is now back with the Ticats and will suit up for the 102nd Grey Cup Dan Feraday Quarterback U of Toronto 1978 81 Dan Feraday grew up just down the street from Varsity Stadium in Toronto and his connection to home was so strong that he ignored recruitment from the likes of Stanford and Notre Dame to play pivot for the Blue and White That decision turned him into a legend at U of T where he broke every provincial passing record at the time His national record of 41 pass competitions in a single game stood until earlier this year when the Blues own Simon Nassar broke it with 49 Feraday never won a championship but capped his legacy off by becoming the first Canadian university football player to be drafted to the NFL when the Cincinnati Bengals selected him in 1982 Dan Feraday called Varsity Stadium in Toronto home from 1978 to 1981 Credit Blake Marshall Running Back Western 1984 87 The Marshall family has contributed a lot to Western football as Blake s brother Greg and three nephews Donnie Brian and Tommy all starred for the program but Blake may be the best athlete of the bunch Blake s CFL career was actually more decorated than his collegiate one but his Hec Crighton season in 1986 was one of the best ever And his most dominant single game performance was one for the ages On Sept 20 1985 he piled up 30 points five touchdowns against U of Toronto Blake wasn t just a dominant rusher though his well rounded approach to the game was touted by former Mustangs coach Larry Haylor who described him as the best blocking full back in CIS history Haylor continued No one was more punishing He frightened every opposing team intimidating players as a runner blocker and receiver He had great quickness for a big man could make you miss could run over you or run away from you Israel Idonije Defensive End Manitoba 2000 02 There haven t been many CIS players like Idonije The Nigerian born defensive end was a special talent from the moment he stepped on the field for the Bisons in 2000 A physical specimen with a knack for getting to the quarterback Idonije came into his own during the 2002 season in which his nine sacks and 31 tackles resulted in team MVP honours a CIS first team All Canadian selection and the J P Metras Trophy as top lineman in Canada What made his success at Manitoba all the more remarkable was the fact he didn t start playing football until his senior year of high school This past summer Idonije was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Laws from his alma mater for being an inspiring selfless role model Idonije would go on to play 10 seasons in the NFL mostly with the Chicago Bears before spending one season with the Detroit Lions Arnaud Gascon Nadon Defensive Lineman Laval 2009 12 Gascon Nadon was a key figure on Laval Rouge et Or teams that won the 2010 and 12 Vanier Cups The defensive lineman actually spent one successful season playing Division 1 NCAA football for Texas based Rice University but returned home to Quebec because he felt being part of the Rouge et Or family afforded him a better chance to carve out a long term career in the game In four seasons with Laval Gascon Nadon registered 20 5 sacks and earned First Team All Canadian status on two occasions Greg Marshall Running Back Western 1978 1981 His accomplishments as a coach one of the most successful in CIS history at that are likely the first things that come to mind when talking about Greg Marshall Two Vanier Cups and an unbelievable 16 Yates Cup wins will do that But after 30 years on the sidelines including two at the helm of the Hamilton Tiger Cats it s safe to say Marshall doesn t get enough due for what he accomplished on the field for the Western Mustangs A fullback to begin the 1978 season Marshall was moved to running back where he would flourish helping the Mustangs to two straight Yates Cup wins and earning the 1980 Hec Crighton Trophy as CIS Player of the Year Today he s one of only two people to have earned both Player and Coach of the Year honours in CIS football It s hard to imagine a more well accomplished player in the CIS Tommy Denison Queen s Quarterback 2001 03 Back near the turn of the century Denison had almost mythical status at Queen s University The Golden Gaels were once again the talk of the Canadian university football scene and their quarterback was passing his way into the record books Football games at Richardson Stadium were wild can t miss events on campus In 2002 he became the first CIS quarterback to pass for more than 3 000 yards in a single season He holds the OUA record for single season touchdown passes with 24 Denison only played three seasons but twice won the Hec Crighton Trophy as the nation s top player It was a good time to be a Gaels fan Tommy Denison holds up the Hec Crighton Trophy he won in 2002 J P Moczulski CP Credit Michael Faulds Quarterback Western 2005 09 The all time leading passer in CIS history 10 811 total yards Faulds broke the game s most prestigious record at a traditional running school with a former running back in Greg Marshall as a play caller On his way to back to back Yates Cup victories and MVPs Faulds threw for over 2 200 yards in three straight seasons with his final one totaling 3 033 Donnovan Bennett his high school and university backfield mate depicted what made Faulds great Football is a game played with your heart and your brain I ve never seen a player who was further ahead of his contemporaries in those categories than Faulds Faulds threw for 550 yards in his final regular season game vs Toronto on Oct 24 2009 but it was his last ever CIS game one of the greatest Canadian football games ever played that he ll forever be remembered for During the 2009 Yates Cup Faulds was playing with multiple torn ligaments in one knee He threw for 509 yards before his knee locked up on the final drive of the game with Western down four points On third down with the game on the line he limped on to the field to attempt one last pass that fell just short as he evaded incoming defenders For a man who has completed more passing yards than anyone in the CIS it was an incomplete pass that affirmed his legacy After the loss Marshall said I am so proud of the gutsy effort of Faulds He ll be remembered as one of the finest in this game Michael Faulds passed for more than 500 yards in a single game twice in his CIS career 550 yards vs Toronto and 509 yardfs vs Queen s Dave Chidley CP Mike Schad Offensive Lineman Queen s 1982 85 The only CIS player to go in the first round of the NFL draft Schad reflects on the highlight of his career at Queen s I was an O lineman in the NFL all those years but playing linebacker at Queen s was a lot of fun We had a good group of guys The highlight was going to the Vanier Cup my sophomore year but I ended up hurting my knee the game before and I went to the game in a wheelchair We didn t win A kid from Calgary ran for like 250 yards right up the middle I was the middle linebacker so I would ve been his counterpart Never got a chance to play that game I was hoping maybe that would ve been a game changer but the football gods didn t want it But that was the highlight there It was an enjoyable time at Queen s Football was fun Tyrone Williams Wide Receiver Western 1988 91 Williams saved his best performance for the biggest game At the 1989 Vanier Cup Williams 157 yards receiving including one touchdown helped spark the Western Mustangs to a 35 10 victory over the Saskatchewan Huskies For his efforts Williams was given the Ted Morris Memorial Trophy as the game s MVP A rangy receiver with great hands Williams was at his peak when his competitive fires were stoked He played best in the big games against the best opponents said former Mustangs coach Larry Haylor By the time Williams left Western he d basically re written the wide receiver chapter of the team record book Erik Glavic Quarterback Saint Mary s 2005 08 Calgary 2009 10 The dual threat quarterback is the only player in CIS history to win the Hec Crighton award with two different schools Saint Mary s in 2007 and Calgary in 2009 Blake Nill recruited Glavic to the Huskies program and later the two were reunited in Dinos colours He is without doubt the most dynamic player I have ever coached His playing escapades are legendary at both Saint Mary s and the University of Calgary I think back to the 2007 Uteck Bowl win over Laval I was then at UC and in the 2009 Calgary victory in Saskatoon at the Hardy Cup Final in both games Erik single handedly beat the opposition with unbelievable effort both as a runner and passer Without doubt one of the most dominant players in CIS football history In his first year with Calgary Erik Glavic put up 2 186 yards passing 503 yards rushing in eight games Jamie Bone Quarterback Western 1975 78 Bone was a standout quarterback in his three years as a Western Mustang leading the team to back to back Vanier Cups in 1976 and 1977 His 80 percent pass completion and four touchdown passes helped win that second cup The next year he was named the CIS s Most Valuable Player His stellar collegiate career complete he tried out for the Hamilton Tiger Cats but went undrafted Then he signed with the Dallas Cowboys He later returned to London to serve as the Mustangs longstanding quarterback coach His son Stevenson now plays for the school Don Blair Wide Receiver Calgary 1992 94 Every great athlete wants to go out on top John Elway and Ray Lewis retired as champions but Don Blair took it to a whole new level The legendary Calgary Dinos receiver went out in style After setting the CIS record books on fire with back to back seasons of 1 000 receiving yards the all Canadian receiver saved his best performance for last Blair flat out dominated the 1995 Vanier Cup against the Western Mustangs with a four touchdown performance becoming the first player in CIS history to win the Hec Crighton Trophy Vanier Cup and Ted Morris
