SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Two former Sacramento State football players were named all-division in the Canadian Football League and another has a new NFL home.

Quarterback Ricky Ray and defensive back Brandon Smith each garnered all-division honors in the CFL. Ray was the East Division Most Outstanding Player as well as the quarterback on the all-division team. He earned the Jeff Russel Memorial Trophy award, which goes to the Most Outstanding Player, for the second consecutive season. He is now one of two finalists for the CFL Player of the Year award which will be announced on Nov. 27.

This past season, Ray led the CFL with 4,595 passing yards, 28 passing touchdowns, 425 completions and a .685 completion percentage. He was twice selected as the CFL Player of the Week.

Smith was selected to the all-West Division team as a defensive halfback. The veteran played in all 18 games where he led Calgary and finished third in the CFL with 85 tackles. He also had three tackles for loss, a pass breakup, forced three fumbles and had a pair of interceptions. Smith helped Calgary to a 15-3 overall record and the top seed in the West Division during the regular season. The team will host Edmonton on Sunday, Nov. 23 in the Western Final.

Rookie Todd Davis has bounced between the New Orleans Saints' 53-man roster and practice squad all season. So it was no surprise that Davis was released two weeks ago with the expectation of resigning with the team. However, the Denver Broncos stepped in and signed the linebacker last Friday. Davis arrived in St. Louis but was not activated for the Broncos' loss to the Rams. Denver hosts Miami this Sunday at 1:25 p.m.

Quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson could also be on the sideline for that game as he's a member of the Miami Dolphins' practice squad. This year, Bethel-Thompson has been with the San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings and Dolphins.
