REGINA - Joffrey Reynolds is still running up the record books.

This time, there’s a catch.

With seven ground yards in Friday’s showdown at Mosaic Stadium, the Calgary Stampeders workhorse will leapfrog legendary ball-carrier Normie Kwong and move into seventh spot on the CFL’s all-time rushing charts.

Kwong, the former Stamps and Edmonton Eskimos star and past lieutenant governor of Alberta, is credited with 9,022 career rushing yards, although the CFL didn’t begin tracking individual statistics until his third season in the league.

There is no record of how much turf Kwong churned up during his first two campaigns of his 13-year hall-of-fame career, including the Stamps’ 12-0 season in 1948.

Already the Stamps’ all-time franchise leader in several rushing categories, Reynolds has racked up 9,016 yards on the ground in his eight years. The 31-year-old running back is also only six receiving yards shy of the 2,000-yard plateau.
