Two Riders Are CFL All-Stars

The Saskatchewan Roughriders are pleased to announce that two players have been chosen to the CFL All-Star team. The Green and White had one player picked on offence and one on defence. The All-Stars were selected by 53 voting members of the Football Reporters of Canada (FRC), the eight CFL head coaches and CFL fans from across the country.

ANDY FANTUZ (SB): In his fifth CFL season, Fantuz earns his first CFL all-star nod. The 26-year old started all 18 regular season games this season and had 87 catches for a league leading 1,380 receiving yards and six touchdowns. He was the first Rider to lead the CFL in receiving since 2000 and the first Canadian to lead the league since 1995. Fantuz was named CFL Canadian of the Month three times this season.

JAMES PATRICK (S): In his third CFL season, Patrick earns his first all-star nomination. The 28-year old safety led the Riders and the CFL with nine interceptions while starting 18 regular season games. Patrick added 68 defensive tackles, seven special teams tackles, a fumble recovery and three pass knockdowns.

Tillman always praised Dalton Bell. I could see him trying to trade Ray for a package that includes Bell.
