Paul McCallum: After rejoining the Lions in 2006, the Grey Cup that season provided Paul with one of his finest moments as a pro as he equaled the record for field goals in a game with six and accounted for 19 of the team's 25 points. Paul has never missed a convert in his CFL career and his 712 in a row is the CFL record. He stands in fifth place all-time with his 2,733 points and ninth with 292 games played. Since leaving the Riders after the 2005 season, Paul has been with the Lions for the last seven seasons and signed a contract extension in February 2012.
