CALGARY - Re-signing with the Calgary Stampeders was a snap for Randy Chevrier.

The veteran long-snapper re-upped with the Stamps Thursday and will enter his 10th season in Red & White.

Stamps GM/head coach John Hufnagel said while long-snappers don’t get much of the spotlight, when you have a good one, it makes the special teams run much smoother.

“Randy has always been a reliable performer at one of the more underrated roles on a football team,” Hufnagel said. “In addition to his important work on special teams, his work ethic and experience makes him one of our leaders in the locker room.”

Chevrier’s work ethic is the biggest reason why he’s still earning a CFL paycheque at 37 years of age.

The 6-foot-2, 246-pounder worked out hard last off-season and reported to camp in the best shape he’d been in years.

Often, he would be the last man off the practice field, staying late to push tractor tires up and down the sideline.
