Career Highlights

Selected in the fourth round of the 2005 draft pick out of Saginaw Valley State by the Philadelphia Eagles, Herremans played in 127 regular-season games (124 starts) and eight playoff games (all starts) as an Eagle, spanning the positions of left tackle, left guard, and right tackle. Herremans started four games at left tackle after former Pro Bowler Tra Thomas went down with a back injury late in the 2005 season. The Eagles moved Herremans to left guard in 2006, where he started all 16 games. He signed a five-year contract extension after the season after being part of an offensive line that allowed just 28 sacks in 2006, the fewest for the Eagles since 1981. When Herremans caught his November 2, 2008, touchdown pass against the Seattle Seahawks, he became the first offensive lineman for the Eagles to catch a touchdown pass since 1934, the franchise's second season. A left guard from 2006 to 2010, the Eagles move Herremans to right tackle for the 2011 season, and to right guard in 2013, where he spent his final two years with the Eagles. Herremans played his final season with the Indianapolis Colts in 2015. Herremans had 124 career starts over the course of 10 seasons, which ranks him sixth all-time among Eagles' offensive lineman. He is the only offensive lineman in franchise history to register two touchdown receptions (one-yard pass from QB Donovan McNabb in 2008 and a two-yard pass from Michael Vick in 2010). In 2012, Herremans founded The Herremans Foundation, a not-for-profit organization that provides resources and help for various charitable organizations, to effect positive change in local, national and global communities. Since retiring from the NFL, Herremans has become an advocate for medicinal cannabis as one of many wellness alternatives to traditional forms of pain management, such as opioids, to treat chronic pain and sports-related injuries. Herremans is founding partner in BodyChek Wellness, a premium hemp extract product line designed to optimize health and enhance everyday performance, as well as ThetaHemp, a Pennsylvania-based industrial hemp grow initiative with additional product lines set to hit market in 2019.

The Week In Cannabis: GrowGeneration’s Spike, Big Earnings, Stocks In Decline, And Dutchie’s Funding
The Week In Cannabis: GrowGeneration’s Spike, Big Earnings, Stocks In Decline, And Dutchie’s Funding
GRWG) managed to close in the green, with gains of 24%. This still meant giving up some of the gains accrued between Aug. 12 and Aug. 19.

The rally started last Friday when the grow supplies company reported its second-quarter financial results, establishing a new revenue record for the tenth consecutive quarter.

GrowGeneration continued to spike on Monday after Jim Cramer interviewed CEO Darren Lampert on CNBC, describing its business model as the “most exciting” he’s seen in retail.

Following a five-day rally, GrowGeneration’s stock hit a peak of $22.30 on Wednesday, and commenced a small decline as excitement around its earnings wore off and some investors looked to take profits. On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.

With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.

The season, originally scheduled to begin in June, was officially cancelled this week.

The CFL had asked the federal government for a $30-million interest-free loan with the intention of creating a hub city (Winnipeg) to host games with no spectators. But the loan was turned down and the CFL put the brakes on plans for a six-game regular season, followed by playoffs and a Grey Cup.

“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
