News Release

SINGLETON NAMED CFL PLAYER OF THE MONTH Calgary Stampeders middle linebacker Alex Singleton has been named the CFL's top player of the month for September. It was a record-setting month for the second-year player out of Montana State, who twice in September was honoured as a CFL player of the week. In the Labour Day Classic against the Edmonton Eskimos, Singleton tied the franchise single-game record by recording 13 tackles. He then recorded 11 tackles in each of his next two games, making him the first player in CFL history to record double digits in tackles in three consecutive contests. In five September games - all of them Stamps victories - Singleton recorded 46 tackles including three tackles for a loss and also had two sacks, one knockdown and four quarterback pressures. The Stamps defence allowed just 73 points - an average of 14.6 points per game - during the month. For the season, Singleton has a league-leading 102 tackles including three tackles for a loss, three sacks, 11 quarterback pressures, one interception, one forced fumble and four knockdowns. Singleton is the first Stamp this season to receive a player of the month award. Members of the team have been honoured on nine occasions with player of the week recognition.
