All-Star Kicker Brett Lauther Signs Extension
The Saskatchewan Roughriders have signed national kicker Brett Lauther to a one-year contract extension, keeping him with the club through 2020.
Lauther (6'1 - 195) spent 2018 with the Riders after signing with the team last March.
The 28-year-old Saint Mary's product connected on 54 of 60 field-goal attempts (90%) including a 56-yard long. The 90% success rate was the second-best in franchise history and the 56-yarder is the seventh-longest successful kick.
Lauther had two games going a perfect 6-for-6 and another two connecting on all five field-goal attempts.
At the end of the season Lauther was selected as a West Division All-Star. He was also named the Riders' 2018 Most Outstanding Special-Teams Player and Most Outstanding Canadian.
