Exclusive Q&A: Brodie Lawson with Stamps LB Alex Singleton

CFL.ca’s Brodie Lawson is on the ground in Calgary to provide CFL.ca coverage of Sunday’s Western Final, and caught up with Stampeders linebacker Alex Singleton in a Facebook Live sit-down this afternoon.

Singleton was upfront on the biggest key to shutting down Winnipeg’s elite run game: Studying the film.

“Understanding what teams do in situations, understanding all their motions (and) different things they do in the backfield,” explained Singleton. “When (Nic) Demski’s in the backfield, when Andrew (Harris)’s back there, when (Chris) Streveler’s in — you have to hope you went over every situation.

“There’s trickery and all that stuff, but when it came down to it, they got the ball at the 33 and ran it downhill. That’s playoff football.”
