One of the bright spots on the Edmonton Wildcats’ offence in 2019 was receiver Lucas Howe. He was a threat through the air and yards after the catch.
Overall Howe hauled in a team high 25 passes, averaging 16.7 yards a catch. Despite defences keying on Howe, he still scored three touchdowns and tallied 418 yards. He also rushed eight times for 37 yards.

It’s our first #PickSixSaturday and what a way to kick it off!
Brant Morrow of the Saskatoon Hilltops intercepted a pass in the end zone on August 25, 2019 and returned it 113 yards in Regina against the Thunder. In doing so he set a new Prairie Conference record for longest interception for a touchdown in Conference history.
Watch this as we relive the moment …

The London Beefeaters captured the Ontario Conference title in 2019 for the first time since 2012. They used a high powered offence along with a stifling defence that allowed the fewest points scored.
The pass rush of the Beefs was solid, including the linebacker core. One of the leaders in the was Codey McRoberts who tallied 11 solo tackles, assisted on one stop, collected a sack, one interception, forced two fumbles and had a Conference high 6 knockdowns.
He is a London born multi sport athlete who really found his feet with his football abilities in 2018 and has continued to push his leadership right into the offseason. In his third year as a Beef, he found himself in a battle for a starting spot at the strong side linebacker position. Down the stretch he began to assert himself taking full advantage of the opporunity. During the last few games of the season McRoberts was all over the field blocking punts, intercepting passes for touchdowns, and making key tackles on defence and special teams.
