  • Over the Christmas Break, we got to watch some college football bowl games, with some having prominent Canadian performers, although overall, bowl season was relatively quiet for the Canucks. CFC40 DE Daniel Joseph had 5 tackles for the Wolfpack in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl. In the Outback Bowl, CFC40 CB Deane Leonard had a tackle and a pass breakup, posting a great PFF coverage grade of 76.6. In the Chanticleers first loss of the season in a heartbreaking FBC Mortgage Cure Bowl against Liberty, CFC60 Enock Makonzo had 10 tackles and 1.5 TFL. Don’t forget to follow CFC100 WR John Metchie III as he searches for another national championship to add to the Alabama Crimson Tide trophy case.


  • In weeks 15 and 16 of the NFL season, the Canucks have stayed in full throttle. Steelers CFC100 WR Chase Claypool totaled 7 catches for 108 yards through his two matchups. CFC100 DT Neville Gallimore of the Cowboys has had 7 tackles and half a sack through the couple of weeks too, while the Eagles’ LB Alex Singleton has continued to impress with 19 tackles during the same time frame. Claypool will now have a chance to cap off his magical rookie season with a Super Bowl if the Steelers can dispatch the Cleveland Browns this weekend and shock the top seeds in the AFC as we speed towards the big day.
