Many believe the quarterback has to be the hardest worker on the team for a franchise to be successful.

He has to be the first guy in the building in the morning and the last guy to leave.

He needs to be the guy going over each and every detail with a fine-toothed comb.

If that's the case, the Calgary Stampeders look to be in good shape.

By now, everyone knows Bo Levi Mitchell has the gaudy stats — with a 6:0 touchdown-to-interception ratio through the first two games being the most impressive — and the perfect 5-0 record as a starter.

But Mitchell doesn't just walk out on game day and start picking apart defences.

It's been the meeting-room work and leadership skills that has Stampeders brass wearing ear-to-ear grins behind the scenes.
