when they were infants. Anthony Calvillo. Hes human, l

Each week, well take a look at some top performers from the CFL, with an eye to looking ahead to some matchups that could be favourable for TSN Fantasy Football, CFL Edition, presented by Joseph Abboud. Chris Myers Jersey . Here are some of the best from Week 11 and players to watch for Week 12: TOP PERFORMERS Matt Nichols, QB, Edmonton (25-for-43, 333 YDS, 3 TD, 1 rush TD vs. Calgary) - With Mike Reilly nursing a thumb injury, Nichols stepped in and put up big numbers (particularly in the fourth quarter) in a losing effort against the Stampeders, connecting for more than 100 yards receiving with both Adarius Bowman and A.J. Guyton. Anthony Allen, RB Saskatchewan (136 YDS, 1 TD, 20 touches at Winnipeg) - There is competition for carries in Riderville, but Allen has done his part to earn the featured role, rushing for 236 yards and three touchdowns in the last three games. Hes now the third leading rusher in the league, behind only Nic Gribsky and Brandon Whitaker. Zach Collaros, QB, Hamilton (30-for-43, 338 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT at Montreal) - Getting Collaros back in the lineup has certainly upgraded the Tiger-Cats attack, as hes passed for 655 yards and three touchdowns in two games since returning. Better quarterback play also has positive effects when it comes to the production of Hamiltons receiving corps. PLAYERS TO WATCH IN WEEK 12 Mossis Madu, RB, Hamilton - Getting regular work with C.J. Cable hurt, Madu has been a big part of the TiCats offence over the past couple weeks, gaining 258 yards from scrimmage, including 136 yards on 15 touches against Montreal last week. No touchdowns yet, but if the yards keep accruing, scores will come soon enough. Tino Sunseri, QB, Saskatchewan - Too soon to be handing out recommendations, since Sunseri has attempted 43 passes in his CFL career, but the Pittsburgh product is likely to get a chance at regular playing time with Darian Durant out. In limited action, Sunseri has completed 62.8% of his passes for 319 yards and a touchdown, but spot duty and a starting job are not the same thing, so it will be interesting to see if Sunseri can handle the spotlight. A.J. Guyton, SB, Edmonton - The first year CFL receiver, out of Central Florida, had the first 100-yard receiving game of his career against Calgary, catching six passes for 111 yards and a touchdown. If he gives the Eskimos an option to complement league-leading receiver Adarius Bowman in the passing game, then all the better for whichever quarterback is calling the shots.

Dullahan blazed four furlongs in 45.97 seconds Sunday morning at Belmont Park. A fast workout usually indicates a horse is in top shape. "He looked like he was galloping, and then we got back to the barn he recovered quickly," said Romans, who won the 2011 Preakness with Shackleford. Womens Ryan Mallett Jersey . The effort paid off once they got back home. Mattias Ekholms first NHL goal proved to be the game winner as the Predators beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Tuesday night for their first victory in four games."Hes human, after all," is an expression often heard when the armour of the invincible is pierced or the stoic breaks down. Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Those moments when he has shown that humanity are the ones I remember most vividly. On January 21, 2014, Calvillo choked up as he announced his retirement from the game which had occupied nearly half of his 41 years. He struggled to find his words while admitting he had never been more nervous in his life. He struggled some more when he thanked his wife, Alexia and daughters, Athena and Olivia. The same held true when he said how much he will miss his teammates, past and present. He was nearly overcome with emotion when he mentioned his late friend, Mike Dawson, who had passed away scant weeks ago. His decades-long association and friendship with general manager and head coach Jim Popp caused the Alouettes executive to break down, almost uncontrollably, once Popp had started to deliver his tribute to Calvillo. Calvillos retirement announcement marked the end of his playing career, but during that storied journey, there were glimpses into the soul of the man which remain indelible in my memory. In late October 2007, Calvillo cried in a media scrum on the practice field outside Olympic Stadium when he revealed that Alexia had been diagnosed with b-cell lymphoma, one week after she gave birth to the couples second daughter, Olivia. The happy ending, of course, was that Alexia would beat her cancer. Seconds after winning his third Grey Cup in November 2010, Calvillo cried during a live interview with TSNs Farhan Lalji as he finally unburdened himself of a secret he had kept for three months: a cancerous lesion was growing on his thyroid gland. The lesion was detected after he sustained an injured sternum in a game against the Blue Bombers on August 20. Only his family and closest friends and teammates knew of his illness while he guided his team to and through the Grey Cup. Joy, relief, trepidation. All were on display once the final gun had sounded in Edmonton that night. Youth Jared Crick Jersey. A surgical procedure to remove the lesion the following month would lead to another happy ending in the Calvillo familys fight against cancer. My most lasting memory of Calvillo came eight days after he had leapt over Damon Allen to become pro footballs all-time leading passer on Thanksgiving Day in 2011; not the moment itself, even though I was the sideline reporter standing only 70 yards from the decisive catch-and-run by Jamel Richardson which vaulted Calvillo to the pinnacle of his profession. On October 18, Calvillo was invited by the Montreal Canadiens to a game at the Bell Centre so the crowd could acknowledge him for his historic achievement. After the fans in attendance gave him a thunderous standing ovation prior to puckdrop, Calvillo and his family were taken upstairs to watch the game from a luxury box. I was working rinkside for the NHL on TSN broadcast that night, so we secured an in-game interview with him in the suite. It was during that interview that I was privy to Anthony Calvillo -- the family man and the player -- encapsulated in one fleeting moment. Midway through Calvillos answer to one of my questions, Athena (who was six-years old at the time) sidled up to her Dad and planted a kiss on his right cheek. Without breaking stride, Calvillo continued and completed his answer. His legendary focus which was unshakeable under pressure from defensive front 7s for two decades shone in that moment, as did the fibre of his family. A child raised in a deeply caring, nurturing family didnt hesitate to show her playfulness, innocence and adoration of her Dad -- regardless of the circumstances. National audience? Were you on TV, Dad? Waivers. Redemption. Concussions. Championships. Tears. Laughter. Transcendent athlete. Despite the accolades and his place in the history of the game, Calvillo describes himself as a regular guy. At home, he takes out the garbage. He changed his daughters "poopy diapers" when they were infants. Anthony Calvillo. Hes human, like us all.
