CALGARY - Jeff Tuel is a mystery to many.

Not to Calgary Stampeders wide receiver Johnny Forzani, though.

With the undrafted free-agent quarterback out of Washington State in line to start Week 1 for the Buffalo Bills, Forzani knows all about the 6-foot-3, 221-lb. pivot he hooked up with back in 2009 on the longest touchdown pass in NCAA history.

“NCAA history — mark it down,” Forzani said with a laugh. “It was against Arizona State, the second game he started in. It was the middle of the third quarter and we were backed up onto our one-inch line. Literally, the ball wasn’t even on the one-yard line — the nose of the football was touching the goal-line. In practice, we’d always connect on a lot of go-routes, and I had press coverage, and basically he just threw it up and I made the play, and it was basically a sprint (to the endzone) from there.
