The Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League announced the addition of five players to their training camp roster on Sunday that included former Wildcat standout wide receiver Nate Rogers.
Rogers, a 6-5, 215-pound wide receiver from South Sioux City (South Sioux City HS), received Second Team All-NSIC South Division and Don Hansen Football Gazette All-Super Region 4 Third Team honors last fall as a senior after leading the Wildcats in receiving with 70 catches for 1,009 yards and 11 touchdowns. He ranked third in the NSIC in receptions per game (6.36), receiving yards per game (91.7) and touchdowns (11).
Rogers became the first WSC receiver since Frederick Bruno in 2009 to have a 1,000-yard receiving season and closed out his Wildcat career ranked third in receptions (177), fourth in receiving yards (2,456) and first in career touchdown receptions (38). He holds the single season school record for touchdown receptions in a season (12), done twice in 2017 and 2018. He was a First Team All-NSIC South Division selection last season.
Spring training camp opened Sunday for the Toronto Argonauts with the teams’ first preseason game scheduled for Thursday, May 30th against Montreal.
