The Toronto Argonauts; officially the Toronto Argonaut Football Club are a professional Canadian football team competing in the East Division of the Canadian Football League CFL. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the team was founded in 1873, and is the oldest existing professional sports team in North America still using its original name. The team's origins date back to a modified version of rugby football that emerged in North America in the latter half of the nineteenth century. The Argonauts played their home games at Rogers Centre from 1989 until 2016 when the team moved to BMO Field, the fifth stadium site to host the team. The Argonauts have won the Grey Cup a record 16 times and have appeared in the final 22 times. Most recently they defeated the Calgary Stampeders 35-22 at home in the 100th Grey Cup in 2012. The Argonauts hold the best winning percentage in the championship game 72.7% and have the longest active winning streak in games in which they have appeared, at five. The Argonauts have faced every current western CFL team at least once in the Grey Cup, while their most celebrated divisional rivalry has been with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The team was owned by the Argonaut Rowing Club for its first 83 years, and has been owned by a series of business interests since 1956. The Argonauts were a fixture on the Toronto sports scene for decades, with attendance peaking in the 1970s. In May 2015 it was announced that a consortium of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment's Larry Tanenbaum via the Kilmer Group and Bell Canada would acquire the team. The sale included a scheduled move to MLSE run BMO Field for the 2016 season, which has long been proposed given attendance under-utilization at Rogers Centre and plans to install natural grass at the domed stadium, rendering it unfit for football. Given the length of franchise history, dozens of players, coaches, and management have been honored in some form over the years. The team recognizes a select group of players with retired numbers: early greats Joe Krol and Dick Shatto, stalwart offensive lineman Danny Nykoluk, and Michael 'Pinball' Clemons who has been the most recent face of the team.

Hogan: A look at five defensive neg. list players

With the NFL and NCAA recently kicking off their seasons, CFL fans are reminded how much they love football and how much they’re missing the Canadian game. We’re all craving a little Canadian football content at this stage.

With the NFL and NCAA recently kicking off their seasons, CFL fans are reminded how much they love football and how much they’re missing the Canadian game. We’re all craving a little Canadian football content at this stage.

We’re here to help fill that void.

A few days ago, Argonauts.ca profiled five offensive players on their exclusive negotiation list. Today it’s the defence’s turn. These five players might not ever make it north of the border, but if they opt to play in the CFL, the Argos hold their exclusive negotiating rights.

TARVARUS McFADDEN – DEFENSIVE BACK, FLORIDA STATE 

Only 23 years old, McFadden has the skill and the size at 6’2”, 205 pounds to be an impact player.

The native of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida was an elite defender at Florida State. In his eight-interception sophomore year he won the Jack Tatum Award as the top defensive back in the NCAA. McFadden was also a finalist for the Bronco Nagurski Award that year as the country’s top defensive player. He was an All-American in his sophomore and junior years, before leaving school after his junior season.

After signing with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2018, McFadden ended up with the Colts, 49ers again, and Lions in a span of 15 months, before being waived with an injury settlement.

He moved on to play with the Tampa Bay Vipers in the XFL for former Argo Head Coach Marc Trestman. He had a pair of interceptions and three knockdowns in five games before the league ceased operations. One of his picks turned into the first touchdown in franchise history after a 78-yard return.

While not blessed with elite speed, he has a tempting skill set. He has a tremendous knack for finding the football and has very good instincts.

TRESTON DECOUD – DEFENSIVE BACK, OREGON STATE 

He spent two seasons at Northwest Mississippi Community College, where he was named an All-American, before moving on to Oregon State for two seasons.

The Covington, Louisiana native was a fifth-round pick of the Houston Texans in the 2017 NFL Draft, starting as a cornerback before being moved to safety. He was a final cut of the team a year later and was signed by Dallas, but was among the final cuts in 2019. He played 10 games with the Texans, one more with the Cowboys.

Decoud played in all five of the XFL’s Dallas Renegades games before the league ceased operations.

Like McFadden he’s tall for a DB at 6’3”, 208 pounds. He’s a versatile defensive back who is not only good in coverage but can also come up and play in the box.

His last name is pronounced day-COO. He’s 27 years old and is a free agent.

NICK WHEELER – DEFENSIVE END, COLGATE 

An explosive pass rusher at the college level, Wheeler is Colgate’s all-time leading sack leader with 33, a record that had stood for 38 years. He added 18 tackles for loss last season. A three-time First Team All-ECAC selection and a three-time Associated Press All-American.

Wheeler was a key component of a Colgate team that led the nation by surrendering just 9.3 points against per game and gave up a total of just six points in a seven-game stretch. In one game they held Fordham to minus-50 rushing yards.

He has good size at 6’2”, 255 pounds. Wheeler was not drafted and has never signed with an NFL team. He was hurt by the lack of a pro day this year due to the global pandemic.

His strength is his pass rushing ability. Explosive off the ball, he’s strong enough and quick enough to be able to beat an opponent in multiple ways.

The St. Louis native has developed into an all-around defensive player, not just a pass rusher.

LEDARIUS MACK – DEFENSIVE END, BUFFALO 

A talented rush end who by pro standards is still a work in progress.

He’s the younger brother of Chicago Bears star defensive end Khalil Mack. The two are currently both with the Bears as Ledarius signed a contract as an undrafted free agent after the 2020 NFL Draft. He was released by the team but was re-signed on September 14 and is currently on their practice roster.

Mack is 6’1”, 240 pounds and 23 years old. A late bloomer, he didn’t play football in high school because the school didn’t have a team.

His football career began with two seasons at ASA College before transferring to Buffalo. He was named Second Team All-MAC as a senior with the Bulls after posting eight sacks and 12 tackles for loss.

A bit small for the NFL, Mack has a good burst and is quick. How much potential does he have? After starting his career as a linebacker, he played defensive end for the first time in his life last year and finished third in the MAC in sacks, despite being the team’s No. 3 defensive end. The top two players in the conference in sacks were the two Buffalo teammates ahead of him on the depth chart.

JORDAN FEHR – LINEBACKER, APPALACHIAN STATE 

To be blunt, Jordan Fehr is an athletic specimen. Last year he ran a 4.45 40, posted a 40.5” vertical jump, and bench pressed 415 pounds. That earned him the third spot among FBS players on The Athletic’s annual “Freaks List”.

A 6’2”, 230-pound middle linebacker, in his final two seasons with the Mountaineers he amassed 195 tackles, including 109 last year.

Fehr was a national semi-finalist for the Campbell Trophy, awarded to the country’s top scholar-athlete. On the field he was named All-Sun Belt in each of his last two seasons.

The Charlotte, N.C. native knows what it takes to win, as his teams won the conference title in all four of his years at Appalachian St. and went 4-0 in Bowl games.

Fehr has a high football IQ and a great nose for the football. He’s a sure-handed tackler.

He signed with the Vikings in April as an undrafted free agent but was one of their final cuts. He’s a free agent.


Hogan: A Look at Five Offensive Neg. List Players

Argonauts.ca thought with the kickoff of the NFL season upon us, it would be a good time to focus in on some of the players on the Argos negotiation list. There’s no guarantee any of these players will ever suit up here, but if they end up coming to Canada, Toronto has their exclusive negotiating rights. Here’s a look at five...

Argonauts.ca thought with the kickoff of the NFL season upon us, it would be a good time to focus in on some of the players on the Argos negotiation list. There’s no guarantee any of these players will ever suit up here, but if they end up coming to Canada, Toronto has their exclusive negotiating rights.

Here’s a look at five offensive players on the Argos neg list.

 

CONNOR COOK – QUARTERBACK, MICHIGAN STATE  

By any definition Cook was a star at the NCAA level.

A three-year starter at MSU (2013-15), he holds the Spartans record for most passing yards, most passing touchdowns and most wins by a quarterback. He led the team to Big Ten Championships in 2013 and 2015, where he was the MVP in both title games. Cook also led State to wins in the Rose and Cotton Bowls. He won the Johnny Unitas Award in 2015 as the top senior quarterback in the country.

One of his teammates with the Spartans was defensive back Arjen Colquhoun, who signed with the Argos in February. They played together in East Lansing for four years.

Cook was a fourth-round pick by the Oakland Raiders in the 2016 NFL Draft. While with the Raiders he became the first QB in the Super Bowl era to make his first NFL start in a playoff game, a 2017 AFC Wild-Card contest against Houston.

Perhaps thrown into the fire too soon in his NFL career, he never lived up to lofty expectations. After subsequently signing with three other organizations, he was released by Detroit.

He spent last season with the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks playing for former CFL head coach and one-time Argo quarterback June Jones.

Cook has good size at 6’4”, 220 pounds and is blessed with a strong arm.

Now 27 years old, he’s currently a free agent. There has been constant communication between the Argos and Cook since the end of the XFL and there was a good chance he would have donned Double Blue if a 2020 season had taken place.

KENDALL WRIGHT – RECEIVER, BAYLOR 

The Tennessee Titans first-round pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, he spent five seasons with them before moving on to the Bears, Vikings, and most recently, Cardinals. He has 19 career touchdown catches and 339 receptions, including 94 in 2013, which is the franchise record since moving to the Volunteer State from Houston.

He suffered a string of injuries which ultimately saw his playing time reduced in Nashville.

A star at Baylor, Wright holds the Bears records for catches, receiving yards and is second in receiving TDs. He was a teammate for three seasons at Baylor with new Argo offensive lineman Phillip Blake.

Not the biggest receiver at 5’10”, 185 pounds, he’s made up for lack of size with above-average quickness. He’s a free agent who will turn 31 in November. He turned down a chance to play in the XFL, keeping an eye on the NFL. Wright was leaning toward heading to the CFL if nothing in the NFL materialized.

TERRANCE WILLIAMS – RECEIVER, BAYLOR 

Was an All-American at Baylor and was teammates with Wright and Blake. Led the country in 2012 with 1,832 receiving yards. He was a unanimous All-American. He trails only Wright in the Baylor record book in career catches and receiving yards.

A third-round pick by Dallas in the 2013 NFL Draft, Williams spent six years with the Cowboys, starting 68 games and catching 20 TD passes. In his first season he caught touchdown passes in four consecutive games, setting the team’s rookie record.

Williams just turned 31 this week. He possesses good size at 6’2”, 210 pounds, and has the speed to get open downfield. He is a free agent after spending some time last season with St. Louis in the XFL.

NICK HOLLEY – RUNNING BACK/RECEIVER, KENT STATE 

A versatile offensive talent, he began his NCAA career at Toledo as a running back but finished it as an MVP quarterback. As a junior, while playing QB, he led the team in rushing, including a 224-yard, four touchdown game against U-Buffalo.

He wasn’t drafted in the NFL but signed a free-agent contract with the Los Angeles Rams just after the 2018 draft. He was released at the end of training camp.

Like Connor Cook, he spent last season with Houston in the XFL where he was sixth in the league in receiving yards. He’s listed as a running back, but almost exclusively played receiver with the Roughnecks.

Holley is certainly aware of the CFL. His twin brother Nate plays with the Calgary Stampeders and last year was named the league’s Most Outstanding Rookie.

He’s just 25 years old, 5’9”, 196 pounds and is currently a free agent. Holley’s skillset would make him a perfect fit to play “R” position in the offence, similar to the role Andre Durie or Anthony Coombs did in the past.

DEJON ALLEN – OFFENSIVE LINEMAN, HAWAII 

He started 49 games at tackle with Hawaii where he was named First Team All-Conference. As a junior he won the team’s Offensive MVP Award, named after the aforementioned June Jones, a longtime head coach of the Rainbow Warriors.

Allen went undrafted, but he was signed by the Chicago Bears as a guard and centre. He spent 2018 on their practice roster before being waived in May 2019. He was then signed by the Green Bay Packers but was released at the end of training camp.

The 26-year-old Los Angeles native spent last year in the XFL where he was traded from the St. Louis Battlehawks to the New York Guardians.

He’s 6’2, 300 pounds and is currently a free agent. Allen is quick, strong, is athletic enough to play left tackle in the CFL and has the capability of playing anywhere along the o-line.


Labour Day Blues

Confession time. The last couple of weeks have been tough on your humble typist. The daily grind has been just that of late, and then some. The realization that there will be no Argo football this year has me a bit down, dare I say, it’s left me double blue. That may sound selfish. Compared to hundreds of thousands of...

Confession time. The last couple of weeks have been tough on your humble typist. The daily grind has been just that of late, and then some. The realization that there will be no Argo football this year has me a bit down, dare I say, it’s left me double blue.

That may sound selfish. Compared to hundreds of thousands of others I’ve gotten off lucky. Nobody in my family has contracted COVID-19, and only a handful of out-of-town friends have either contracted the disease or are relatively certain they have.

With that said, professionally the last few weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster. At times word trickled down that there was a good chance a partial CFL season was going to be played in Winnipeg. Then we’d get word that it didn’t look good, or there was a 50/50 chance that there would be football.

The landscape seemed to change – sometimes dramatically – on a daily basis. When the inevitable happened and the plug was pulled on the season it was almost a relief. At least the “not knowing” was gone and we could start preparing for 2021.

Then this weekend came along and the sadness returned.

It’s supposed to be one of the highlights of the Canadian football season. OUA games would be played leading up to the Bombers and Riders on Sunday, and a pair of rivalry games today including the regular-season game that matters most to Argo and Ticat fans alike.

Not happening. There will be no Labour Day Classic this year.

I’m missing the normalcy of the event; the practices leading up to Monday’s game, the Sunday walkthrough, the preparation for the radio broadcast.

I’m even down about not having to make the drive to Hamilton. That should tell you everything you need to know.

I’ll miss the good-natured trash talk from fans as I walk to Tim Horton’s Field from the parking lot. Wearing an Argos golf shirt in Hamilton on Labour Day makes one stand out.

It won’t be the same without hearing the words “Argos Suck”, the seemingly hour-long wait for the elevator to the press box, or the league’s worst broadcast location; a mile high and at roughly the 10-yard line. From that location the far end zone is just a rumour.

Did you ever think you’d hear an Argo fan say he’s feeling nostalgic about hearing the “Oskie Wee Wee” chant? Or trying to figure out why the wind always seems to blow 200 kmh on game days at THF.

This year there will be no arrival of Chris Schultz in the broadcast booth, talking about how much he loves the rivalry. Seeing the 60-year old former offensive lineman’s boyish enthusiasm for the game is refreshing. Non-CFL fans in Toronto should have the opportunity to experience the big man’s love for the sport up close, there’s little chance it wouldn’t rub off on them.

There’ll also be no family rivalry this year between my wife, the Argo season-ticket holder, and her sister, the Ticat season-ticket holder (Yes, I know. I’ve failed). The two always sit together during Argo/Ticat games in both Hamilton and at BMO Field. Whichever sister’s team wins, they’re always over conciliatory to the other, while on the inside they’re way happier than they’re letting on.

But that’s what the rivalry is about. On this day, and for the best of fans, this just isn’t a football game, it’s the opportunity to renew friendships. A chance for the Friends of the Argos fan group to tailgate with Hamilton’s Box-J Boys before and after the game; sharing a beer and a burger, getting caught up in some playful trash-talk, then meeting up after the game to break down what they just witnessed.

A fierce rivalry on the field, a fierce friendship off it.

That’s what I miss the most about this day. Over the years I’ve gotten to know many Hamilton fans either in person, or at least via social media. If the CFL is a family, the Ticats are the Argos’ irritating cousin; the one that you want to be better than at every level, but deep down you know how important they are to the family.

Today was supposed to be the annual family reunion. It’s been cancelled this year and that makes me sad because the get-togethers are always a ton of fun, even if our cousin happens to come out on the better end of the scoreboard.

With this year’s circumstances in mind, I wish our friends down the QEW an “Oskie Wee Wee” (whatever that means) and a promise that we’ll be back next year.

We’ll even wear our Grey Cup rings so you can see what one looks like

Hey, I couldn’t resist, it is Labour Day after all.


Argos and PA lend a hand

So now what? It’s a question that has likely been asked by every CFL player since the 2020 season was cancelled. Some will continue their regularly scheduled off-season employment, while others may be in a situation where they’re not working for the first time in their lives. For those players, both the Toronto Argonauts and CFL Players Association are ready to help. From the team’s perspective, the man in...

So now what?

It’s a question that has likely been asked by every CFL player since the 2020 season was cancelled. Some will continue their regularly scheduled off-season employment, while others may be in a situation where they’re not working for the first time in their lives.

For those players, both the Toronto Argonauts and CFL Players Association are ready to help.

From the team’s perspective, the man in charge is longtime Argo defensive back Matt Black. Now in his second year as the team’s Player Relations Advisor, the hero of the 2017 Grey Cup oversees the implementation of a team program that connects players and employers.

“Pinball (General Manager Mike Clemons) has the goal of making us the most player-centric team in the league, both on and off the field,” explained the former defensive back. “Our focus has to be around the players and what’s best for them, so we started working on an employment program to help keep guys in the market year-round and let them establish roots here in the city.”

The objective is to show players that the organization cares about them in the off-season, which this season has been prolonged. The hope from the team’s perspective is that players want to remain in Toronto or join the team because they see how well players are treated.

“Finding employment outside the game can be difficult because of the time period,” Black told Argonauts.ca in a phone interview. “The premise of the program is to leverage the connections we have to provide opportunities for guys that want to be here and call Toronto home.”

The program started with MLSE, making internships available within the parent company.  Sponsors, partners and alumni members have also stepped up, giving players the opportunity to secure employment in the GTA in the off-season.

“We’re in the early stages of this program,” continued Black. “It’s about building relationships and finding good fits and then growing those partnerships from there.”

Sadly, the COVID-19 outbreak caused many of the potential opportunities to be cancelled in the short term, though Black is excited that a solid foundation has been laid for the future.

The CFL Players Association is also working to provide its members with job opportunities, even though the pandemic has taken a toll on the job market.

Former Argo Brian Ramsay is in his seventh season as a member of the Canadian Football League Players Association Executive Committee, the last five as the group’s Executive Director. It’s during his tenure that the CFLPA Academy was launched in 2016, a program designed to help members prepare for their post-playing career.

While the PA encourages athletes to play for as long as they can, it feels a responsibility to help players prepare for life after football.

“We know that there will inevitably be a transition,” Ramsay told Argonauts.ca. “We want players to prepare for that and be able to assist them through feedback on how best to do that. Truly, the Academy has been built by the players themselves.”

Health and wellness, job opportunities, and education are some of the tenets of the program.

That led to the genesis of the “Players4Players” program within the Academy. It’s geared toward connecting members of the CFL Alumni Association with those still playing.

“A lot of our former players are entrepreneurs and realize the talent pool of individuals that are our members.”

It’s a deep pool, as over 350 current players are involved in the academy, the number increasing this year with the fear of a reduced schedule, then the cancellation of the 2020 season.

“It was expected,” Ramsay said in a phone interview from his home in Victoria, B.C. “These are challenging and unprecedented times. What players are finding is that this program is an incredible complement to playing and that they can do both and prepare themselves for what life after football could be.”

Ramsay, a former offensive lineman wore the Double Blue for 51 regular season games between 2007-09, before playing five additional seasons in Hamilton and Edmonton.

“This year that’s been really fast forwarded for a number of individuals,” said Ramsay. “We’ve got financial education, financial literacy training, and we’ve seen a significant rise and we’ve seen a significant rise (in the number of participants) in the last four or five months.”

“After the decision to end the season we had an outpouring from not only our current partners in terms of helping our players, but also from the public and the alumni with different opportunities that could be available immediately for our players.”

This is an instance where PA, league and individual teams all want to be on the same page.

“What we’re asking now is how do we best harmonize the programs together, because the goal is the same – to offer opportunities. If a player wants to stay in the city where he’s playing, whether he’s from a different city, province or country, and wants to call that city home, how can we best facilitate that because it can be a benefit to the team, the league, and the players and their families.”

The groundwork was being laid to help players even before the global pandemic hit. There’s still room for growth, but the opportunities given to players to help find work has proven to be exceptionally timely during this unexpected work stoppage.


Introducing the Grey Cup Fan Base

“An incredible opportunity to show your pride in our storied history and your faith in our bright future.” – Canadian Football League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie TORONTO (August 24, 2020) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) has unveiled an innovative idea that gives its fans a unique opportunity to have their names forever etched in Grey Cup...

“An incredible opportunity to show your pride in our storied history and your faith in our bright future.” – Canadian Football League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie

TORONTO (August 24, 2020) – The Canadian Football League (CFL) has unveiled an innovative idea that gives its fans a unique opportunity to have their names forever etched in Grey Cup glory: the Grey Cup Fan Base.

“The Grey Cup Fan Base is our way of recognizing that our fans are, in so many ways, the foundation upon which this great league and the legend of the Grey Cup stand,” said Randy Ambrosie, Commissioner of the CFL.

Fans can have their names inscribed forever on a permanent new base – a beautiful, 48-inch high tribute to CFL fans crafted from Canadian maple and aluminum – upon which the iconic Grey Cup trophy will be placed at all its public appearances.

“When COVID-19 forced us to cancel the 2020 season, we said we are absolutely committed to making 2021 the greatest comeback in the history of the CFL,” Ambrosie said.

“Fans asked us, as they have throughout the pandemic: ‘How can we help?’ The Grey Cup Fan Base is a wonderful way to help our league, and your team, come back stronger than ever. It’s an incredible opportunity to show your pride in our storied history and your faith in our bright future.“

CFL season ticket members get the first chance to enshrine their names, or those of a beloved fellow fan they choose to honour, in Grey Cup history starting today for a fee of $349. Their exclusive window continues until August 30th at 11:59 p.m. ET . After that date, other fans can take advantage of the same opportunity for $399.

The Grey Cup Fan Base is a project supported by the CFL and the Canadian Football League Players’ Association (CFLPA), with proceeds going to the CFL’s nine teams and CFL players.

“The Grey Cup Fan Base is a great innovative idea that is supported by the players as a way to connect our passionate fans even closer to our game,” said Solomon Elimimian, President of the CFLPA.

“It not only recognizes and celebrates our fans, but it connects our players, our fans, and the teams across the league in a meaningful way. This fan support initiative will help us through 2020 and into 2021 as we look to come back stronger than ever before.”

To learn more, and to see a digital rendition of the newly created CFL Fan Base, fans can visit www.greycupfanbase.ca.

This immersive www.greycupfanbase.ca website gives fans the opportunity to get a close-up look at the Grey Cup Fan Base. Those who decide to show their pride and support by becoming part of it will also be able to see their name or their honouree’s name as it will appear, etched in aluminum.

The Grey Cup Fan Base package includes:

·    Your name etched on the Grey Cup Fan Base.

·    A digital collectors’ item certificate of authenticity, displayed at www.greycupfanbase.ca, which features your name, or that of your honouree, and the signatures of the CFL Commissioner and a representative of your favourite team.

·    An exciting augmented reality displaying the Grey Cup Fan Base digitally in your home to share with friends and family via social.

·    An immersive digital experience that allows you to get up close with the Fan Base, showcasing your name etched on the Fan Base.

·    Recognition in your team’s home stadium.

Proudly made in Canada, the Grey Cup Fan Base is a dynamic, multi-level podium created to forever represent the fans who proudly support our players, our teams and Canadian football as a beloved, homegrown national passion.

It consists of ten pillars on each side, in recognition of the fact the CFL has nine teams and embraces Atlantic Canada as part of the CFL family. But it stresses unity by eschewing team colours, diversity by featuring pillars of various heights, and faith in a bright future as each pillar is illuminated.

“The design is intended to evoke the idea that our fans are lifting up the Grey Cup, which belongs to all, and the CFL and Canada along with it,” Ambrosie said.

“In this unprecedented and challenging year, we wanted to find a way to show how much we appreciate our fans’ faith and dedication. And we wanted to do that in a way that allows fans to show that they deeply believe in what the CFL and Grey Cup mean to Canada, that nothing is going to stop us from being together again, and that we will continue to add to the legend and legacy of the Grey Cup. The Grey Cup fan base represents hope and confidence. It’s a wonderful idea and a beautiful work of art.”

TORONTO – The following statement was issued today by Argonauts General Manager Michael “Pinball” Clemons to players, fans and partners of the Toronto Argonauts Football Club:

“First acknowledging the unenviable challenges our nation and indeed the world has faced, we humbly convey with tremendous regret, the cancellation of the 2020 CFL season. At a time when businesses, communities and families have courageously battled uncertainty, to a yet uncertain end; we immediately think of our players, fans and partners to whom this outcome is most problematic. It is with greater conviction and an indomitable, indefatigable spirit that we now race towards 2021. Champions embrace the challenge, so I know you’ll join me as we remove the barriers, reset our priorities, and reclaim our game. 2021…here we come!”
