Paredes is coming off another stellar season in 2022 as he led the league in scoring with 211 points and also was at the top in both field goals with 54 and field goals of at least 50 yards with five.
Paredes was the league scoring champion for the third time in his career and he converted at least 90 per cent of his field-goal attempts for a league-record sixth time. During the 2022 season, Paredes – born in Venezuela, raised in Pierrefonds, QC, and now a full-time Calgary resident – moved into the CFL’s top 10 in all-time scoring.
The Concordia alum finished the season with 1,944 career points in 193 regular-season games. He is a six-time division and league all-star and was part of Calgary’s Grey Cup-championship teams in 2014 and 2018.
Paredes has been a team captain for eight years and his active streak of 193 consecutive regular-season games played ranks 13th in CFL history.
