Reggie Begelton Honoured by CFL
Calgary Stampeders receiver Reggie Begelton is one of the Canadian Football League's players of the week following his record-setting performance against the Montreal Alouettes at McMahon Stadium on Saturday.
Begelton tied a franchise record with four touchdown receptions in a single game, matching the mark set by Herm Harrison in 1970. He had a total of eight catches against Montreal and established a personal single-game best with 173 receiving yards. The bulk of the yardage came on two long catch-and-run touchdowns in the fourth quarter - a 56-yarder followed by a 69-yarder.
For the season, Begelton is among the CFL leaders in catches (third with 49), yards (third with 704) and touchdowns (tied for second with five). The 25-year-old Beaumont, Tex., native has already established personal season highs in all three categories.
Begelton is the third Calgary player to be honoured as a CFL player of the week so far this season.
