REGINA, SASKATCHEWAN — Johnstown native Geroy Simon reached a personal milestone Saturday in the Saskatchewan Roughriders’ 24-21 win over the Montreal Alouettes in Week 8 of the Canadian Football League season.

Simon, obtained during the offseason in a trade with the BC Lions, made his 999th and 1,000th career pass receptions in the game. He finished the day with a total of 14 receiving yards.

The milestone catch came in the third quarter of the game before a sold-out crowd of 40,637, the third-highest attendance in Roughriders history.
