Players to Watch

Ricky Ray, Toronto Argonauts, QB

With a name like Ricky Ray what's not to like about the Argos' signal-caller? 

In all seriousness though, Ray has been solid in his first season in Toronto, completing more than 68 percent of his passes for over 4,000 yards and 20 touchdowns. The former Sacramento State player has a decade of experience in the CFL, and has 36 rushing touchdowns to boast for his athleticism.

In last weekend's Eastern Division championship win over Montreal, Ray threw for 399 yards and a touchdown. 


Jon Cornish, Calgary Stampeders, RB

Running back Jon Cornish will be motivated to bring home the Grey Cup for the second time in five years this November. After all, the former Kansas Jayhawk has played all six of his CFL seasons in Calgary and was less of a factor in the Stamps' 2008 Grey Cup victory over Montreal.

Cornish is averaging 5.6 yards per carry this season and surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his CFL career. He has more than 1,400 to go with 11 touchdowns on the ground in 2012.

He is also a threat out of the backfield as a receiver, recording 38 receptions for 338 yards and two scores this season for the Stamps.


Chad Owens, Toronto Argonauts, WR

Argos wide receiver Chad Owens has improved tremendously in every season since he entered the CFL in 2009. The former Hawaii wideout has caught 94 balls for more than 1,300 yards and six touchdowns this season.

Owens will be quarterback Ricky Ray's No. 1 target this weekend against Calgary, as the 5'8" pass-catcher is averaging more than 14 yards per reception.

Owens surpassed 200 yards receiving on just 11 catches in last weekend's win over Montreal.


Maurice Price, Calgary Stampeders, WR

Calgary wideout Maurice Price has really come on strong for the Stamps recently, leading the team with seven receptions for 117 yards and a touchdown in its Western Division championship win over the defending Grey Cup champion BC Lions last weekend.

Price, who has played for six NFL teams in the past, has been a stud in the playoffs, boasting 13 receptions for more than 230 yards. 

The 27-year-old is scorching-hot right now, and with a seasoned passer like Kevin Glenn making sure he gets the ball, Price is sure to be effective for the Stamps this weekend in Toronto.
