It looks like Chase Claypool is not done adding his name to the record books, as his four touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles make him the first Canadian-born player in NFL history to do so.

Earlier in the afternoon, Claypool became the first Canadian born player with three touchdowns in a game since Rueben Mayes achieved the feat. in 1990.

The Abbotsford, BC native had seven receptions for 110 yards and three touchdowns while adding a quick touchdown. His four touchdowns are also most by a Steelers rookie in one part.

In week two against the Denver Broncos, Claypool scored the longest scrum touchdown in league history by a Canadian-born player with an 84-yard reception.

With five touchdowns so far this season, the 22-year-old is halfway to eclipsing Mayes’ mark from 1986, when he had eight touchdowns in his rookie season with the Nova Saints. -Orléans.
