The stage was set, and Geroy delivered. “Superman” Geroy Simon smashed the record for all time receiving yards on a corner route play and now Geroy sits on top of the CFL all time receiving list and passes former Bomber and Hall of Famer Milt Stegall. Simon is now fourth all time in Pro Football behind Jerry Rice, Terrell Owens, and Isaac Bruce.
Simon just needed 67 yards going into the home opener and in the 4th quarter on Friday night, Geroy stepped up and delivered, as he caught a pass from Travis Lulay on a 56 yard pass. Geroy Simon now sits with 15, 192 yards and 940 receptions.
Commissioner Mark Cohon, BC Lions General Manager Wally Buono, and former receiving yards leader Milt Stegall were on hand for the play as the game was stopped for a brief ceremony to recognize the acheivement.
BC Lions went on to win the game 33-16 over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Congratulations Geroy Simon on the amazing achievement!
