"When you grow up as a kid, you always want the ball in your hands with the game on the line, in the biggest game," said Fajardo. "I was just thankful for that opportunity."

The Brea, Calif., native led a 91-yard touchdown drive in the dying seconds of the fourth quarter to secure the Grey Cup for the Alouettes.
