Calgary Stampeders running back Tory Harrison survived when

Inside the Calgary Stampeders locker-room around this time last season, the RB spot was known for
something other than running back.

It was Random Body.

On their way to a Grey Cup title, the Stampeders, amazingly, had employed six different running backs
by mid-August, and Tory Harrison was the latest practice roster insurance GM/head coach John
Hufnagel was forced to go out and find.

Jon Cornish was down with a concussion.

So was Matt Walter.

Martell Mallett had a groin injury.

Jock Sanders was nursing a sore ankle.

It was Hugh Charles carrying the rock at the time Harrison was brought in.

Fast forward one year and Mallett, Charles and Sanders are all out of the league, while Cornish is in
the same spot on the six-game injured list.

Right now, it’s the Walter and Harrison show, and they performed to rave reviews in Saturday’s 34-31
win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

“I thought our running game improved as the game went along,” Hufnagel said. “They’re two very
talented running backs, so it’s nice to have a mixture in there. Whether it was Jon and Matt or now it’s
Matt and Tory, they both bring a little bit different elements to the game.”

Walter was the feature back against the Riders, running for a career-high 110 yards, putting an
exclamation point on his busiest game of his four-year career on the final with six carries for 37 yards
to kill out the clock.

If Walter provided the exclamation point, it was Harrison, a 27-year-old former Indoor Football League
star out of Southern Mississippi University, adding the bold letters with a pair of receiving touchdowns
— a six-yard catch early, followed by a 32-yard walk-in TD in the fourth quarter — and a 19-yard
scamper with less than a minute left to seal the Riders’ fate.

In three games this season, Harrison now has nine receptions and it’s his ability to catch the football
that will keep him in the mix for backfield touches.
