Newly minted Grey Cup champion Riley Jones is the Canada West Football Alum of the Month for November.
The former UBC Thunderbird made an impact for the Calgary Stampeders last month, as they captured the 106th Grey Cup in Edmonton with a 27-16 win over the Ottawa REDBLACKS.
Jones’ biggest play of the season came in the fourth quarter of the CFL’s championship game, as the Stamps linebacker forced a punt fumble, helping Calgary pad their lead with a field goal.
The forced fumble proved key for Calgary, as they won their eighth Grey Cup in franchise history and first since 2014.
Jones was one of seven Canada West grads on the Stamps, who were also joined by special teams coach Mark Kilam, and running backs coach Marc Mueller.
The former South Delta Sun Devils and South Delta Rams standout played five full seasons of Canada West football at UBC, and was part of the Thunderbirds Hardy and Vanier Cup winning season in 2015.
Over the month of November, Jones recorded four special teams tackles and a forced fumble, as the undrafted free agent finished his second CFL season with nine defensive tackles and 15 special teams tackles.
