In the first quarter, the game started with Abel Rhoden kicking off for Las Vegas, with Orlando Turner returning the ball for 15 yards to the Detroit 33-yard line. Despite a penalty against Detroit for offensive holding, they managed to advance with a pass completion from Scottie DiCosomo to Brandon McGee for 36 yards, setting up a touchdown run by John Shannon around right end.

Las Vegas managed to take the lead again with a field goal by Abel Rhoden, putting them up 17-14 just before halftime.

After halftime, the third quarter saw both teams struggling to gain significant momentum, with Detroit tying the game once more with a field goal by Craig, making it 17-17.

In the fourth quarter, Las Vegas extended their lead with a field goal by Rhoden, making it 20-17. Detroit attempted to respond but faced difficulties, including a blocked punt by Las Vegas. Despite their efforts, Detroit couldn't overcome Las Vegas's defense, and the game ended with a final score of 20-17 in favor of the Las Vegas Rounders.

Overall, it was a closely contested game with both teams showing resilience, but Las Vegas ultimately emerged victorious with a narrow three-point margin.

Week 3

And we're back, folks! Welcome to a gridiron showdown in Sin City where the Las Vegas Rounders are hosting the Seattle Spartans in this high-stakes CFL matchup! The Rounders came into this one looking to extend their winning streak, while the Spartans are hoping to pull off a huge upset on the road. Let's get right into the action!

The game kicked off under clear skies and mild temperatures, perfect conditions for some football. Las Vegas won the toss and elected to receive, setting the stage for a fast start. From the get-go, it was clear that the Rounders' ground game was firing on all cylinders. Running back Mark Gredzinski set the tone early with some powerful runs up the middle, showing great vision and burst through the line of scrimmage.

But it wasn't just the ground game that was working for Las Vegas. Quarterback David Kaesviharn was sharp in the pocket, connecting with his receivers on some big plays downfield. Wideout Caleb Stuart and tight end Ethan Davis were instrumental in the passing game, finding openings in the Spartans' secondary and moving the chains.

Defensively, the Rounders came out with intensity, pressuring Seattle's quarterback Kent Tyler and forcing some errant throws. Linebacker Buddy Hargreaves was a force to be reckoned with, wreaking havoc in the backfield and disrupting the Spartans' offensive rhythm.

As the game progressed, Las Vegas continued to dominate on both sides of the ball. Running back Noah Finley showcased his versatility, contributing both as a rusher and receiver out of the backfield. And let's not forget about the Rounders' special teams, with kicker Abel Rhoden nailing field goals and extra points to keep the scoreboard ticking.

Despite a valiant effort from the Spartans, including some impressive plays from their own standout players like wide receiver Andres Asimov and running back Joel Sallee, they couldn't overcome the relentless pressure from the Rounders.

In the end, it was a convincing victory for Las Vegas as they secured another win at home and solidified their position atop the CFL standings. Final score: Las Vegas Rounders 27, Seattle Spartans 6.

What a game, folks! The Rounders put on a clinic in all phases of the game, showcasing why they're a force to be reckoned with in the CFL. Stay tuned for more thrilling action as the season unfolds!

2069 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review


Tue Feb 06 04:14 PM

2069 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review

1-01 (1)
David Kaesviharn QB Fresno State
6'1" 210 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

All three QBs were considered the guy for Vegas at one point or another leading up to the draft. In the end, Kaesviharn heard his name called by Commissioner Smitty for the first overall pick to kick off the 2069 draft. Woodson was the clear favorite arm in this class but the combine exposed an athletic monster in Bey, who had one of the best combines of the decade. However, after the interview cycle finished, it was Kaesviharn who emerged atop the Vegas draft board. With the second-best arm in the draft and the best soft skills of the bunch, Kaesviharn should be the answer in Vegas.

3-07 (71)
Avery Thames OT Oklahoma Stater
6'0" 306 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

After trading up from 1.09 to 1.01, we had to send our 2.08 and 3rd next year up to Seattle. With 10 Tackles and a handful of Guards gone by the early 3rd, we liked Thames to step in as our swing Guard on day one. With LeFavor heading into his 9th year, it won't be long before Rottinghous returns to the right side and Thames takes over at LG.

4-06 (102)
Martin Boeck WR Indiana
5'11" 188 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

We had a hard time deciding between Boeck and Doersburg here. Boeck's combine was a tale of two outcomes, but his skills are very intriguing. Boeck enters a young WR room with another new addition of Bobby Burns via free agency. Burns and Ungerer are the vets who can hopefully steer these young bucks in the right direction. We had WR Harder as a late-3rd/early-4th grade but it's the CFL and we couldn't get back into the mid-3rd so we went with the next WR on our list. We are counting on Boeck's hands, 3rd down catching, route running, and big-play receiving to support Kaesviharn's upcoming campaign.

4-07 (76)
Duane Doersburg S Penn State
6'0" 205 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

When you can't decide between two guys, call Mikey for a trade. Boeck was our guy at 4.06, so if we couldn't make a reasonable trade here, we still go WR Boeck and hope our guy falls. Doersburg had the bars we wanted to backfill an aging Safety and looks like a poor man's Mitch Wickes - he just trades some CB bars for a little zone skill. This was the first pick where we deviated from our usual valuation method, so if Duane doesn't make the cut, we won't be surprised.

5-05 (133)
Dustin Cheatwood S Penn State
5' 11" 198 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

Cheatwood was high on our list and even though we went with Doersburg with 4.07, we couldn't let Cheatwood and his combine slip any further. His broad jump is the only blemish on his combine and we don't believe his bars are accurate. It's been a while since we let combine dictate a pick. It's still unclear if Dustin is a corner or safety but we'll make that determination at some point.

7-08 (200)
Toby Connell RB Wisconsin
5' 9" 205 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

This is where we like to find combine-only guys and we already warmed up with Cheatwood in the 5th, so let's roll with Connell in the 7th. His combine scores suggest these bars are heavily masked. Or they're not and we're wrong. Again, no surprise whichever way he turns out. We are looking forward to his development and hopeful unmasking.

7-23 (215)
Tony Meier QB Kansas State
6' 2" 215 lbs

Post-Camp Analysis:

I don't know why we had QBs on our list still. The deck is stacked against Meier right out of the gate, as he is the 5th member of our QB room and we'll be surprised if he makes the 60-man roster heading into the pre-season. We'll be chasing down a guy or two in 2nd FA that were after Meier on our list.

2068 Las Vegas Draft Review

2068 Las Vegas Rounders Draft Review

Las Vegas entered 2068 ranked 7th in rushing with RB Noah Finley leading the ground game with over 1300 yards rushing after he and Mark Gredzinski both gained over 1000 yards rushing in 2066. Finley's contract talks garnered most of the off-season attention in Vegas with many expecting the Rounders to move up to land their franchise QB or a new running back in the 2068 draft.

1-29 (29)
Marlon Hardy DT Baylor
6'2" 303 lbs

Despite many rumors about possible trades, Vegas stood pat at 1.29 and was rewarded with Baylor's stand-out DT, Marlon Hardy. Some think Hardy may be the most impactful defensive lineman in the 2068 draft. Hardy joins an experienced front seven in Vegas and will be featured in the rotation immediately.

2069 Update: Hardy was placed in the rotation as planned, recording 51 tackles, 22 assists, 2.5 sacks, 1 bloc, 7 hurries, and 4 QB knockdowns. Hardy also topped the Green Page in his rookie campaign:


2-29 (61)
Gabriel Lane S Colorado State
6'1" 213 lbs

For the 2nd year in a row, Vegas takes a Safety with their 2nd round pick. Last year, Vegas selected FS Willie Covington who started 7 games in 2067. Lane brings outstanding man coverage and physicality to a young Vegas secondary that has Erick Watkins as the lone holdover at Safety from the previous version of the Vegas defense.

2069 Update: Lane started 16 games last year tallying 80 tackles, 23 assists, 1 interception, and 7 passes defended. All-Pro LB's Hargreaves and Green were the only defenders with more tackles last season. Lane looks to be a leader on defense for the foreseeable future.

3-25 (89)
Ruben Schroeder WR Arizona State
6'2" 201 lbs

The Rounders pressed the reset button on the WR room with the McSwag McSwain trade to Boston. Rumblings of other significant moves at the position were confirmed when Vegas selected 3 WR's in the 2068 draft, the first of which was Arizona State's Ruben Schroeder. Schroeder's size and 4.41 speed result in big plays and 3rd down conversions that run the current version of the Rounders' offense. Fans have been reminded that the Roush era is here with an offense that is far more methodical (reads: boring) than it was during McKnight's reign, but yards after the catch and chunk plays are the fuel to the new engine. Schroeder has the skills to fit this offense.

2069 Update: Schroeder was the first of 3 WR's selected by Vegas last year but he's the worst of the three. He is currently the leader of the receiver room but he needs to start producing if he wants to see a second contract with the Rounders.

3-29 (93)
Jamal Coward TE Mississippi
6'3" 251 lbs

TurfToe seemed hell-bent on going TE with this pick and rumor has it the war room was divided between Jamal Coward and Carlos Bradetich. Reports indicate it came down to the difference in blocking strength and hands between these two and Coward won out in the staff's eyes. Coward will get a chance to earn a roster spot in the passing game and on special teams.

2069 Update: Coward won a roster spot and is still on the team. He's a 50/50 guy - he caught 1 of his 2 targets and made 1 of his 2 key run block opportunities. Coward is the 3rd TE that sees limited time in 13 and 23 personnel.

4-22 (118)
Jay Burgess WR Alabama
5'11" 192 lbs

Jay Burgess was the 2nd WR selected as part of the receiver room overhaul showcasing similar skills to Schroeder. Burgess lacks Schroeder's size but brings a superior route-running ability that should help Roush in his second season as a starter. Burgess's ability to move the chains and generate chunk plays was very pronounced on film. Burgess is a raw prospect but has the motor and football IQ to succeed at the next level.

2069 Update: Burgess may lack Schroeder's size but he's every bit the football player Schroeder isn't. He was brought along slowly with 44 targets (4th on the team) but he has developed nicely. We expect big things from Burgess in his sophomore seaon.

4-23 (119)
Damian Latschaw OLB Oklahoma
6'0" 236 lbs

Latschaw joins one of the best LB corps in the CFL. He was brought in as a coverage specialist and should make a noticeable impact on passing downs and special teams. If Latschaw can get some plusses on film in the running game, he may cement his spot as a backup OLB on this roster.

2069 Update: Latschaw's smaller frame is evident in the run game but he has shown flashes in the passing game. In limited time he hasn't allowed a catch and has a PD% of 82.5 in limited play. The verdict is still out on Damian but he is still on the 53-man roster.

4-29 (125)
Amos Pitcher P Morningside
6'2" 215 lbs

Journeyman punter Jesse Givens started showing his age last season, so Morningside's Amos Pitcher was brought in to compete after his solid showing at the CFL combine. Pitcher embarassed some of the QB's at the combine and some scouts actually thought he was one of this class's QB's during his workout. Pitcher brings a powerful leg along with passing and rushing skills that can be leveraged on fakes on both punts and from the holder position on FG's.

2069 Update: Pitcher demonstrated his big leg matching the league lead with a 72-yarder. He also had the 7th-best average at 47.3 and a respectable 38 of 93 punts inside the 20. Pitcher has a roster spot unless he does something stupid to lose it.

5-11 (139)
Brady Floyd RB Washington State
5'11" 216 lbs

Many pundits expected Vegas to settle their contract issues with Noah Finley by selecting one of the many top runners in this class. Instead, Vegas waited until the 5th round to grab a runner and they selected an interesting prospect in Floyd. Floyd brings elusiveness that Vegas fans haven't seen since Gmerek's days in the black and pink. Floyd has the quickness to hit the hole or get to the outside but lacks a second gear needed to consistently break off big plays. He lacks hands even though he runs precise routes and has a knack for moving the chains in the passing game. Reps in the pre-season will be key to understanding Floyd's future as a Rounder.

2069 Update: Floyd managed to stick around and even get some work during the regular season. Appearing in 6 games last year he took 91 carries for 342 (3.76 ypc) and 2 TD's. He's still a bubble guy but he's also on a CFL roster.

5-29 (157)
Mason Gillespie C Alabama
5'11" 283 lbs

Sophomore center Ed Hutton managed a handful of starts last season and did well enough for Vegas to release long-time center Soltis. Hutton has big shoes to fill and Alabama's Mason Gillespie was brought in for support. Gillespie demonstrated similar skills as Hutton, but scouts are concerned with his size. If he is unable to put on some more weight, this level may prove too much for the rookie.

2069 Update: Gillespie impressed in the pre-season and earned 16 starts during the regular season. He went 44-115 KRB's (38.3 BPCt) with 1 pancake and 2 sacks allowed (23.2 OPct). He also earned All-League First Team Center honors.

6-29 (189)
Caleb Stuart WR Miami Florida
5'9" 189 lbs

Caleb Stuart was the 3rd receiver selected by Vegas in the 2068 draft. Stuart's ability to get downfield, move the chains, and adjust to poorly thrown balls made him essential to the receiver reload in Vegas. OC Jackie Tubbs said the one thing that stood out on Stuart was his catch radius and ability to catch poorly thrown balls despite his small stature. Definitely a guy to watch as the pre-season unfolds.

2069 Update: Stuart was an afterthought in the Rounders' 2068 draft but he wound up as the 2nd best WR selected by Vegas. Although eh was brought in as a 3rd down specialist, his 75% completion rate in the red zone has garnered some attention from the coaching staff. Stuart will probably be a Rounder longer than Schroeder.

2069 look back added.
