Toronto, July 5, 2007 - The Toronto Argonauts Football Club would like to congratulate return specialist Bashir Levingston on being named CFL Special Teams Player of the Week for CFL Week 1. This is the 13th time in his career that Levingston has earned the award.

In the 2007 CFL season-opener, Levingston returned a missed field goal 129 yards for a touchdown - setting a new modern day CFL record since missed field goal returns were categorized separately in 1985.  Levingston finished the game with 165 combined yards and two special teams tackles, including one that saved a likely B.C. kickoff return touchdown to open the second half.

The Argonauts would also like to congratulate DE Riall Johnson on being named runner-up for CFL Canadian Player of the Week.
