#ProTops: Haggerty, Ruffin in Week 2 CFL Action
For the first time in 2022, multiple former Hilltoppers took the field the same week in CFL action.
With Week 2 of the 2022 CFL season in the books, every team has played at least one game.
John Haggerty - Toronto Argonauts (win vs. Montreal, 20-19)
One of the many oddities to the league is that, with a nine-team competition, someone had to sit out week one, and that someone this year was John Haggerty and the Toronto Argonauts.
Haggerty was drafted by the Argos with the fourth overall pick of this past year’s Global Draft, and made his CFL debut in Week 2, punting four times for 205 gross yards, with an average of 51.3 yards per punt, including a 62-yard long boot, and logged a CFL staple - the single (more commonly known as a rouge) in the first and second quarters.
This week, the Argos head to Vancouver to take on the BC Lions. Kickoff is set for 9 p.m.
Dionté Ruffin - Calgary Stampeders (win at Hamilton, 33-30)
In what was the early game of the season, Dionte Ruffin and his Stamps came back from a 21-point deficit, scoring 20 points in the fourth quarter alone, to take down the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in overtime.
Ruffin had a quiet day, logging three tackles.
In last week’s win over Montreal, Ruffin had one of the highlights of the week, combining with teammate Mike Rose for a tip-drill interception.
The Stamps return to action this week against Edmonton on Saturday (6 p.m.).
