Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

1964 Week 11
https://1.bp.blogspot.com/--9KZhCAHzVg/YP9OMo5YsCI/AAAAAAAAD34/StR0lfxTNJ0ytak1y8sabK6EZi1BoSmuACLcBGAsYHQ/s800/1964%2BWeek%2B11.png

Halifax Mariners - 26, Boston Independents - 17 - Atlantic Stadium - August 20, 1964 - 7 PM ET - TNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: Benjamin O’Donnell and William Arland
1st Q
3-0 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
3-7 BOS - RTD RB Kendall Morgan
2nd Q
10-7 HFX - PTD QB Michael Benedict -> WR Joshua Lafleur
13-7 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
13-10 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
3rd Q
20-10 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
20-17 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Chester Bennett
4th Q
23-17 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
26-17 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin

The pressure was on for QB Michael Benedict who needed to prove himself to earn the job for next season. 
He pulled through with a good performance to earn the Mariners their second win of the season. 
Boston struggled in the game surprisingly with several mistakes that led to turnovers throughout. 
DB Joe Robinson had a pick and LB Marco Price, DL Wayne Baxton, and DL Pat Butler were all able to punch the ball loose at some point for the Mariners.
This could be a crucial loss for the Independents, who are in the heat of the battle in the East.

Buffalo Blue Wings - 31, London Tigers - 13 - Milton Charles Stadium - August 21, 1964 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Cloudy - TV: Jerry Goldbridge and Jackie Calhoon
1st Q
7-0 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
7-7 LDN - RTD RB Clifford Russell
2nd Q
10-7 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
10-10 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
17-10 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake
3rd Q
24-10 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Daniel Irons
24-13 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
4th Q
31-13 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake

Buffalo was desperate for a bounce-back game against the Tigers, and QB Charles Lemieux delivered with a 3 touchdown performance.
London just did not have anything to counter the Blue Wings and are at risk of falling a step behind the playoff race in the West. 
Buffalo had a strong defensive game as well with LB Orion Carter getting a forced fumble, while DB Dean Hawkins grabbed a pick. 

Louisville Thunder - 24, Indiana Victors - 10 - Thunder Stadium - August 22, 1964 - 3 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy - TV: Clint Georgetown and Jamar Swinton
1st Q
7-0 LOU - RTD RB Rodney Clark
2nd Q
14-0 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> TE Christopher Gist
14-3 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
3rd Q
14-10 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Ed Edwards
21-10 LOU - RTD RB Rodney Clark
4th Q
24-10 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes

The Thunder continued their hot streak with a 4th straight win over their rival Victors. 
Indiana still didn’t look that bad but did struggle against the Louisville defence. 
DL Winfield Winchester had his first career forced fumble, LB Calvin Hardy also brought in a forced fumble, and S Johnny Berger had an interception as well. 

Montreal Rouge - 27, Providence Gold Stars - 9 - Mount Royal Stadium - August 22, 1964 - 7 PM ET - SNF - Weather: Cloudy - TV: FR Cyril Etienne and Quinton Jacques, EN Bob Walton and Steven Kelly
1st Q
7-0 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Frederick St.Pierre
7-6 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> TE Micheal Bowman III
2nd Q
10-6 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
17-6 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
3rd Q
17-9 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
4th Q
24-9 MTL - RTD RB Scott Mallard-White
27-9 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger

The Rouge grabbed another big win over the Gold Stars to pull themselves back into the division race. 
QB Gene Bishop was the star with a pair of touchdowns despite DB Neville Falkner shutting down WR Derek Cross, who only had one catch for 8 yards in the game.
Providence just didn’t have it yet again as they continue the trend of losing big when they lose this season. 
LB Wilson Rockwood-Barnes was an important piece for the Rouge with 4 tackles in his debut with the team.

Ottawa Royals - 16, Long Island Raiders - 25 - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - August 23, 1964 - 2 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy- TV: George Leblanc and Kevin Holcombs
1st Q
0-7 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
0-10 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
2nd Q
3-10 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
6-10 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
3rd Q
6-17 LI - PTD QB Stanley Troyer -> WR Larry Mossholder
9-17 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
4th Q
9-24 LI - PTD QB Stanley Troyer -> WR Larry Mossholder
16-24 OTT - PTD QB Jean Matieau -> WR Marshall Leonard
16-25 LI - Single K Henderson Schumacher

A strategic single at the end of the game sealed the win for the Raiders over the Royals. 
With an 8-point lead, K Henderson Schumacher would punt the ball into the endzone looking for a single, Ottawa would try to get out, but the Raiders defence was able to get to WR Colby Bancana in the endzone to seal the game. 
K Ira Foster had a strong day for the Royals keeping the team in the game with 3 field goals in the game. 
The Raiders offence was playing quite well with QB Stanley Troyer finding the endzone twice, however, he did throw a pick to rookie DB Jerome Caldwell which would be his career first.

Louisville Thunder - 23, Toronto Steelheads - 30 - OT - Thunder Stadium - August 28, 1964 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: Clint Georgetown and Jamar Swinton
1st Q
0-3 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
0-10 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Samuel Petri
2nd Q
7-10 LOU - RTD RB Rodney Clark
7-13 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
3rd Q
10-13 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
17-13 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> WR Piers Key
20-13 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
4th Q
20-16 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
20-23 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Edmund Landry
23-23 LOU - FG K Frank Hughes
OT
23-30 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Samuel Petri

The Steelheads put an end to the Thunder’s 4-game win streak with an overtime win on the road.
QB Todd Baker was the key to the win, throwing 3 touchdowns in his return to the starting lineup.
The Thunder were right in the battle, but the offence could not find the endzone in overtime, and Dumont threw an interception that pretty much sealed their fate. 
DB Luke Warren was the one with the interception for the Steelheads.
To make matters worse the Thunder now are in a very difficult spot as they now have 0 tiebreakers over the other 3 teams they are battling with for a playoff spot and have only one game left. 

Halifax Mariners - 10, Montreal Rouge - 41 - Atlantic Stadium - August 29, 1964 - 3 PM ET - Weather: Clear - TV: EN Benjamin O’Donnell and William Arland, FR Cyril Etienne and Quinton Jacques
1st Q
0-3 MTL - FG K Athur Kettinger
0-10 MTL - RTD RB Scott Mallard-White
0-17 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> TE Eli Grant
2nd Q
7-17 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
7-20 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
3rd Q
7-27 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Derek Cross
7-34 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Derek Cross
4th Q
10-34 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
10-41 MTL - RTD RB Hugo Hughes

The Rouge earned their second straight win in a rout against the Mariners. 
QB Gene Bishop looked sharp with 3 touchdowns, before being replaced by QB Mike Key in the 4th to give their new backup some time to get used to the offence.
The defence played really well giving Halifax many problems; LB Elijah Goldwater had a forced fumble in his return, DL Lucas Kipling had one as well with S Garet deVale getting an interception along with DB Jayson Klyde.

Ottawa Royals - 31, Buffalo Blue Wings - 34 - Royals Stadium at Brewer Park - August 29, 1964 - 7 PM ET - SNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: George Leblanc and Maurice St.Louise
1st Q
3-0 OTT - FG K Ira Foster
3-7 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
3-10 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
2nd Q
3-13 BUF - FG K Ryan Perch
10-13 OTT - PTD QB Jean Matieau -> WR Mackenzie Jones
3rd Q
10-20 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
17-20 OTT - RTD RB Don Gregson
17-27 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
4th Q
24-27 OTT - PTD QB Jean Matieau -> TE Ryan Hatcher
31-27 OTT - PTD QB Jean Matieau -> WR Marshall Leonard
31-34 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Julius Drake

It was an emotional night for the Royals fans, as many were thinking this might be Jean Matieau’s last game in Ottawa with the team playing their final 2 games on the road.
Matieau put on a great performance for the home crowd but came up just short of the win with the younger Lemieux leading the Blue Wings on a game-winning drive.
TE Ryan Hatcher had his first career touchdown for the Royals to give them a shot late in the game.
RB Jimmy Golden once again had a 3 touchdown performance continuing his amazing season and becoming just the 3rd RB in league history to reach at least 21 rushing touchdowns in a season. 

Indiana Victors - 17, London Tigers - 27 - Victory Stadium - August 30, 1964 - 1 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: Harold Mansfield and Jim Earnest
1st Q
0-3 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
7-3 IND - RTD RB Cody Barnes
2nd Q
7-10 LDN - RTD RB Clifford Russell
3rd Q
7-17 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Max Sutton
7-24 LDN - RTD RB Clifford Russell
4th Q
10-24 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
17-24 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Denis Langlois
17-27 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth

The Tigers got an important almost-must win over the Victors to keep themselves in the hunt with back-to-back games against the Steelheads coming up.
DB Jackson Miles played an important role with a pick in addition to only allowing one completed pass to any WR he was covering in the game.

Long Island Raiders - 20, Providence Gold Stars - 10 - Long Island Stadium - August 30, 1964 - 5 PM ET - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: Frank Dijon and Kevin Holcombs
1st Q
7-0 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
2nd Q
7-7 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Cedric Peterson
10-7 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
3rd Q
17-7 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
4th Q
17-10 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
20-10 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher

The Raiders took home their 7th win in 8 games on the back of another strong performance from RB Dareion Fields.
Defensively the Raiders had some solid performances with DL Pionk Bjorkkstrand grabbing a fumble, and DB Rutherford Winters getting an interception; LB William Washington II also had a pick in his return to the lineup.
As for the Gold Stars, The trades that they made haven’t seemed to have helped too much, as the team did not look great in the game putting themselves in a tough position down the stretch.

Montreal Rouge - 30, Long Island Raiders - 27 - OT - Mount Royal Stadium - September 4, 1964 - 7 PM ET - FNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: FR Cyril Etienne and Quinton Jacques, EN George Leblanc and Kevin Holcombs

OT
23-20 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
23-27 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
30-27 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis

It was a thrilling back and forth match between the Rouge and Raiders, that ended with an excellent Gene Bishop-led drive. 
The win gives the Rouge the top spot in the East and clinches them a playoff spot. 
The Raiders were frustrated by the loss, but they will still have a chance to clinch the division in the final week of the season. 
*Montreal clinches playoff spot

London Tigers - 24, Toronto Steelheads - 29 - Western Fair Stadium - September 5, 1964 - 7 PM ET - Weather: Clear - TV: Bob Litchfield and Eric O’Brian
1st Q

4th Q
17-22 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
17-29 TOR - RTD RB Tommy Allen
24-29 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> WR Russell Wilcox

The Steelheads came through with a huge win on the road against the Tigers to officially book their ticket to the playoffs in their first season in the NAAF. 
The loss means the Tigers face potentially being completely knocked out of contention if both Louisville and Boston win their games later in the week. 
K Bob Randall had quite the 2nd quarter nailing 3 field goals on 3 straight drives due to the Tigers defence being able to stall out the Steelhead offence. 
LB Dallas Dillard still had a strong showing for the Tigers with a forced fumble and 8 Tackles, but it wasn’t enough.
*Toronto clinches playoff spot

Providence Gold Stars - 14, Halifax Mariners - 34 - New Providence Stadium - September 6, 1964 - 2 PM ET - Weather: Clear- TV: Bob Walton and Steven Kelly
1st Q
0-7 HFX - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Nick Nacker

2nd Q
0-17 HFX - RTD RB Ronald O’Sullivan
3rd Q
7-17 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Cedric Peterson

4th Q
14-24 PRO - PTD QB Connor O’Rourke -> WR Ben Roland
14-27 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
14-34 HFX - PTD QB Buck Murphy -> WR Jav Kerrigan

QB Buck Murphy made the QB decision a whole lot tougher for the Mariners with a stellar performance against the Gold Stars. 
It seemed like QB Michael Benedict had the advantage going into the final two games of the season, but a 2 touchdown performance from Murphy leaves the team at a complete crossroads going into the offseason.
Providence looked terrible in the first half with 3 turnovers and no points; it was only made worse with DL Wayne Baxton knocking the ball off of O’Rourke in the third which allowed DL Pat Butler to scoop the ball and score.
Providence's gamble to trade for several pieces to push for the playoffs has not paid off at all.

Indiana Victors - 11, Louisville Thunder - 18 - Victory Stadium - September 7, 1964 - 1 PM ET - Labour Day - Weather: Clear - TV: Harold Mansfield and Jim Earnest
1st Q
1-0 IND - Single K Ross Poindexter

4th Q
11-10 IND - PTD QB Lyle Painter -> WR Ed Edwards
11-16 LOU - PTD QB Leonidas Dumont -> WR Sammy Moss
11-18 LOU - 2PT RB Rodney Clark

The Thunder were able to escape a scary situation with a defensive win over the Victors to close out their regular season. 
The Victors put up a fight with Painter continuing to show he can still play well, but he needed a little more to get a win.
Louisville’s defence did cause the Victors some trouble with LB George Yokoi grabbing a fumble and LB Scotty Williams taking in an interception.
*Louisville clinches playoff spot 

Boston Independents - 28, Ottawa Royals - 21 - Richardson Stadium - September 7, 1964 - 5 PM ET - Labour Day - Weather: Clear - TV: Benjamin O’Donnell and William Arland

4th Q
21-21 OTT - PTD QB Jean Matieau -> WR Mackenzie Jones
28-21 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Ellis Lindholm

It was potentially the last battle between Braddock and Matieau would be a touchdown fest.
In the end, Boston would get the last laugh to officially lock up the final playoff spot in the NAAF. 
There were a couple of turnovers in the game with DB Jerome Caldwell getting his second career interception for the Royals and LB Konrad Aust had a pick as well. 
A standing ovation was given out by the Boston faithful for Matieau after the game, showing their respect for the great QB.

1964 Week 14

Montreal Rouge - 34, Halifax Mariners - 13 - Mount Royal Stadium - September 12, 1964 - 3 PM ET - Weather: Clear- TV: FR Cyril Etienne and Quinton Jacques, EN George Leblanc and Kevin Holcombs
1st Q
0-3 HFX - FG K Elvis Franklin
7-3 MTL - RTD RB Scott Mallard-White
2nd Q
14-3 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Derek Cross

28-13 MTL - PTD QB Gene Bishop -> WR Taylor Karis
4th Q
31-13 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger
34-13 MTL - FG K Arthur Kettinger

Montreal went out during their final game of the season and claimed the East Division title with a dominant win over Halifax.
The Rouge offence played really well with Gene Bishop controlling the game and continuing his excellent season.
The Mariners were hoping for more of the same from QB Buck Murphy after last week’s strong performance, but he was not able to replicate it struggling against the Rouge defence where he threw 2 interceptions (S Garet deVale and DB Quentin Xavier).
*Montreal clinches East Division

Toronto Steelheads - 18, London Tigers - 25 - Anderson Stadium - September 12, 1964 - 7 PM ET - SNF - Weather: Partly Cloudy - TV: Bob Litchfield and Eric O’Brian
1st Q
3-0 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
3-7 LDN - PTD QB Riley Kiernan -> TE Tranquille Rousseau
2nd Q
6-7 TOR - FG K Bob Randall
6-14 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews

12-14 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Edmund Landry
12-17 LDN - FG K Nimrod Handsworth
4th Q
18-17 TOR - PTD QB Todd Baker -> WR Samuel Petri
18-23 LDN - RTD RB Austin Andrews
18-25 LDN - 2PT QB Caldwell Higgins III -> TE Tranquille Rousseau

It was the Tigers that would be the ones to help out the Buffalo Blue Wings with a revenge win over the Steelheads. 
With the Steelheads losing the Blue Wings clinched the West Division for the first time since 1957. 
RB Austin Andrews got the opportunity to start, and he would have a strong game with a pair of touchdowns.
QB Caldwell Higgins III also got an opportunity to take some snaps for his hometown team in the 4th, while QB Rigobert St-Hilaire took some in the 3rd. 
QB Todd Baker tried to get the Steelheads back into it late with a pair of touchdown passes, but it would not be enough.
*Buffalo clinches West Division

Providence Gold Stars - 12, Ottawa Royals - 15 - New Providence Stadium - September 13, 1964 - 12 PM ET - Weather: Cloudy - TV: Bob Walton and Steven Kelly
1st Q
3-0 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
2nd Q
6-0 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
6-7 OTT - RTD RB Don Gregson
9-7 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
3rd Q
12-7 PRO - FG K Maurice Lafayette
4th Q
12-13 OTT - PTD QB Landon Ross -> WR Marshall Leonard
12-15 OTT - 2PT QB Landon Ross -> WR Marshall Leonard

The Royals would start QB Landon Ross in their final game of the season, to see what the young QB could bring to the table as a potential starter of the future. 
Ross was able to pull off the win with a game-winning touchdown to Marshall Leonard. 
Providence’s offence with QB Terry Bourbon under center was far from perfect, in fact, they turned the ball over 3 times in the game. 
DB Jerome Caldwell had yet another pick as well as DB Wesley Nires, while DL Zane Tannith had a forced fumble. 

Buffalo Blue Wings - 35, Indiana Victors - 13 - Milton Charles Stadium - September 13, 1964 - 3:30 PM ET - Weather: Clear - TV: Jerry Goldbridge and Jackie Calhoon
1st Q
7-0 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
7-3 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
2nd Q
14-3 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden
21-3 BUF - PTD QB Charles Lemieux -> WR Daniel Irons
3rd Q
28-3 BUF - PTD QB Jack Owens -> WR Moe Schafer
28-10 IND - RTD RB Raymond Green
4th Q
28-13 IND - FG K Ross Poindexter
35-13 BUF - RTD RB Jimmy Golden

He did it, RB Jimmy Golden was able to put up 3 touchdowns in the Blue Wings’ final game of the season which would set the new record for rushing touchdowns in a season.
After he had scored twice in the first half, RB Théodore Lemieux took over for most of the second half alongside QB Jack Owens, but Golden was given a shot to break the record from 2-yards out late in the game.  
Indiana had started QB Tom Applewhite, but he didn’t last very long before taking a big hit from DL Mickey Daly that would take him out of the game leaving fellow young QB Jimm Kidd to take over. 

Long Island Raiders - 16, Boston Independents - 27 - Long Island Stadium - September 13, 1964 - Finale - Weather: Cloudy - TV: Benjamin O’Donnell and William Arland
1st Q
0-7 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Ellis Lindholm
0-14 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Chester Bennett
2nd Q
7-14 LI - RTD RB Dareion Fields
7-17 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg
3rd Q
10-17 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
13-17 LI - FG K Henderson Schumacher
13-24 BOS - PTD QB Nathaniel Braddock -> WR Ellis Lindholm
4th Q
16-24 LI - FG K Henderson Schmacher
16-27 BOS - FG K Johnnie Berg

A great game from QB Nathaniel Braddock would help give the Independents a home playoff game officially by clinching the East’s second seed.
It was a fast start for Braddock who threw touchdowns on the first two drives of the game.
The Raider struggled to recover with Boston controlling the game from that point on, they would not get anything defensively as Boston kept it clean without any turnovers.
Boston’s defence did have success with Lawrence Ralph grabbing a pick and DL Timmy Kerr getting a forced fumble.

Playoff Preview 

East Division Semi-Final - Boston Independents VS. Long Island Raiders
Head-to-Head: W1 BOS 25-24 LI, W14 LI 16-27 BOS

Boston was able to take home field in the final game of the season in the win over the Raiders. They have the momentum heading into the game, but the Raiders are certainly not going to go down without a fight. The big question for the Raiders will be if they can beat a good team since all 7 of their wins came against non-playoff teams this season. Either way, it should be a close battle based on the previous battles this season. In the end, I think the best QB will be the one to come out on top, so I’m taking Boston in this one.
My Pick: Independents

West Division Semi-Final - Toronto Steelheads VS. Louisville Thunder
Head-to-Head: W6 TOR 34-33 LOU, W10 TOR 20-31 LOU, W12 LOU 23-30 TOR OT
It will be the 1st time two teams have met for a 4th time in a season in league history. Toronto had the advantage during the regular season, and they may have an advantage with playoff success with their multiple OFU titles in recent years. Louisville’s defence will need to play well, however, the game could depend more so on the offensive attack. I think the Steelheads are coming in with a chip on their shoulder and I am concerned with Louisville’s consistency, so I like the Steelheads in this one.
My Pick: Steelheads

Re: North American Association of Football - NAAF

1964 NAAF Award Nominations

MVP

RB Jimmy Golden BUF
Setting a new record for most rushing touchdowns (24) in a season is probably the best thing to have on your MVP resume. Golden was the heartbeat of the Blue Wings’ offence this season and the main reason they were able to return to the top of the West Division. 

RB Dareion Fields LI
Fields was neck and neck with Golden for most of the season in terms of stats and was also a major help to his team’s success. Fields had 20 Rushing touchdowns this season, which was 12 more than the rest of the offence combined. Fields continues to be one of the most valuable members of the Raiders. 

QB Gene Bishop MTL
Gene had an excellent season for the Rouge this season leading the team back to the top of the East Division. Bishop’s ability to spread the field worked brilliantly with HC Perry Powell’s offensive strategy and allowed the team to be the highest-scoring team this season. 

Offensive Player of the Year
RB Jimmy Golden BUF - 24 Rushing Touchdowns (1st), 1st in Rushing Yards
Records being set certainly makes a player shoot up to the top of a OPOY favourite. Golden’s excellents season is going to be hard to beat
RB Dareion Fields LI - 20 Rushing Touchdowns (2nd), 2nd in Rushing Yards
Fields was right behind the top RB in Golden all season long and certainly had a season that in any normal season would likely have put him at the top of rushing leaders.
QB Gene Bishop MTL - 20 Passing Touchdowns (2nd), 1st in Passing Yards
Bishop’s strong offensive output came with a lot fewer mistakes and a lot more big plays, as he truly continues to come into his own as a top QB in the NAAF. 
WR Derek Cross MTL - 11 Receiving Touchdowns (1st), 2nd in Receiving Yards
Going up against the MVP candidates will be tough, but Cross was the league’s best WR this season being able to create big play after big play to help Montreal dominate through the air. 

Defensive Player of the Year
DL William Sanderson IND - 8 Forced Fumbles (1st), 1st in Sacks
Sanderson is often not thought of due to the fact that he plays for the Victors, but he was playing at an unreal level this season leading the league in forced fumbles and creating a lot of havoc for offences around the league. 
S Johnny Berger LOU - 5 Interceptions (T-2nd), 1 Defensive Touchdown, 1st in tackles from defensive backs and safeties
Johnny Berger is one of the best safeties of his time and hasn’t always gotten the true recognition for it, but he had a strong season with 5 picks and made the Thunder the toughest team to throw downfield against.
DB Neville Falkner PRO - 8 Interceptions (1st), 2 Defensive Touchdowns
The winner of the last two DPOY’s once again dominated on the field, continuing to prove that he might be the greatest DB to play the game.

Special Teams Player of the Year
K Frank Hughes LOU - 22 Field Goals (2nd), 26 Extra Points, 1 Single, 93 Points (2nd)
Hughes was very important to the Thunder’s offensive output this season which has not been great the last couple of seasons.
K Arthur Kettinger MTL - 26 Field Goals (1st), 34 Extra Points, 112 Points (1st)
Kettinger lit up the goalposts this season putting up 19 more points than any other kicker this season. His 112 points made up 35% of Montreal’s points this season. 
K Bob Randall TOR -  21 Field Goals (3rd), 28 Extra Points, 91 Points (3rd)
Toronto’s Bob Randall was super helpful in keeping Toronto in games this season. 

Rookie of the Year
OL Millard Streety HFX - Least amount of pressures among rookie OL.
Streety was promoted to the Mariners’ roster this season and immediately stepped into a starting role on the O-line and was able to make a big impact for the young team, especially in pass defence.
DB Jerome Caldwell OTT - 3 Interceptions (T-9th) 
Caldwell likely would have made a stronger push for rookie of the year had it not been for a major injury that kept him out for most of the season, however, when he was playing Caldwell was a major defensive impact for the Royals this season.
RB Max Tracy TOR - 7 Rushing Touchdowns (T-9th)
The 1st overall pick was a great addition for the Steelheads. While he didn’t get as many starting snaps as he would like, he still made the most of them, scoring 7 times and helping the Steelheads to the playoffs. 

Coach of the Year
HC Maurice Evanson BUF - Record: 8-4
Evanson’s return to the NAAF was an impactful one, being able to get the Blue Wings back into the playoffs after back-to-back disappointing seasons. He was able to revamp the young offence and help them back to a division title. 
HC Perry Powell MTL - Record: 8-3-1
Powell took over the HC role this season for the Rouge and was able to push the Rouge back to the top of the league. His offensive mind helped the Rouge to the #1 scoring team this season.
HC Ronald Martin TOR - Record: 7-5
It was going to be a difficult task to make the jump from the OFU to the NAAF, but Martin was able to handle it well and put the Steelheads right in the hunt and make the playoffs in their first season.

Breakout Player of the Year
S Wesley Jones BUF - 2 Interceptions (T-17th)
Wesley Jones finally got the opportunity to be the main guy in Buffalo after S Frazier Brooks retired this offseason. The young safety was able to do what Brooks had always done proving himself in his first season.
DB Rutherford Winters LI - 4 Interceptions (T-7th), 1 Defensive Touchdown
Winters was able to step up this season after being overshadowed by DB Lauri Hayha’s breakout season last year and be one of the league’s top DB’s.
DL Lucas Kipling MTL - 4 Forced Fumbles (T-8th)
Kipling has grown a lot in his first few seasons in the NAAF and this season he started to be a leader on the Montreal D-line and was able to make a strong impact all season long.

47th McCallister Cup Host
Richardson Stadium - Boston, MA - Capacity: 45,265 - Last Hosted: 1957 
Boston is the classic home to the championship game, so it is always a great place to host the game. So they are always willing to put their name in the hat. 
Milton Charles Stadium - Buffalo, NY - Capacity: 54,000 - Last Hosted: 1952 (Buffalo Civic Stadium)
It has been over a decade since one of the league’s best fan bases were able to host the league’s championship game, and with the new stadium, it seems like the perfect time to bring it back to Buffalo
