Respect From Flutie To The Argos New All-Time Passing Yards Leader

With files from

The year of the milestone continues. In week 6, while having a career year, Ricky Ray became the Argos All-Time leader in Passing Yards.

Ray surpassed longtime record holder Condredge Holloway (16,619) as the Argos passing yards leader on a 5-yard strike to RB/SB Anthony Coombs.

But not only did he take the #1 spot, he also got some respect from newest member of the All-Time Argonauts club, none other than Doug Flutie who commented on the Argos Instagram, “Congrats Ricky! A true pro in every way”.  Some real daps from one GOAT to another.

A veteran of 15 CFL seasons, Ray has now spent the last six seasons with the Double Blue. During that time Ray has gone 1,438-of-2,020 passing for 16,634 yards and 95 touchdowns. Ray also became the club’s all-time leader in passing attempts in the first quarter passing Holloway’s record of 1,988 attempts.

Ray’s 386-yard performance at Mosaic Stadium in week 6 marks his sixth consecutive game eclipsing the 300-yard mark, a feat which he has never accomplished in his 15-year career – 506 in Week 1, 327 in Week 2, 366 in Week 3, 330 in Week 4, 367 in Week 5.

Here is a breakdown of all the club’s records that Ricky Ray currently holds:
Career Pass Attempts – 2,020
Completions – 1,433
Pass Completions: 70.9%

Pass Completion Percentage: 77.2%

Completions in a Game – 39
Consecutive Pass Completions: 35
Completion Percentage: 95%

Ray needs four touchdown passes to pass Holloway (98) and become the Argonauts outright all-time leading passer.
