Some notable names may be missing from the list due their CFL combine preparation. This includes two-time U SPORTS First Team All-Canadian Jamie Harry, and East-West Bowl participants Cody Cranston, and Kalem Beaver, will look to focus in on these categories in hopes of a combine invitation.

The most notable achievement of the team's winter testing goes to Jonah Johnston for achieving King Gee-Gee status. To become a King Gee-Gee, you must meet a set of elite testing requirements. For Johnston's defensive end position this includes a minimum of, 15 bench press reps at 225 lbs, a 4.7s 40-yard dash, 4.35s 20-yard short shuttle, 9-foot broad jump, and a 30-inch vertical jump.
