White North Wednesday - Naaman Roosevelt highlights the week

While the Roughriders lost the game Naaman Roosevelt sure put on a show.

His 9 catch 100+ yard performance got him listed as a player of the week, or up north a "CFL Starter"

Of course, a lot of his success has to do with his off season work.

"I went down there for a couple of days and worked out with him," Roosevelt said. "It was good to get an understanding of where he wants me to be on the field. Even through training camp and now, we talk all the time trying to get a feel for each other.

"It’s great when you’ve got a player like him who has seen it all. For me, it’s a chance to get under his wing. It’s been exciting."

EJ and the REDBLACKS have started strong.
