Highlights

2013

Played in all 18 games in 2013 with 17 starts and led the club in receiving five times. Posted three 100-yard games including a career-best 118 yards on Sep 27/13 vs BC (6 catches, 2 TDs). Had nine games of 50 or more receiving yards including the final seven games of the season. Among Denmark’s 64 catches were 10 for 30+ yards (#4 in the CFL) and 19 for clutch first downs on second down conversion chances. Had 5 catches for 102 yards on Oct 14/13 vs Montreal with one TD.

2012

 A key focal point in the Blue Bomber offence, the speedy Denmark looked to build off his impressive rookie campaign and made 17 starts in the receiving corps, missing one game for personal reasons.  He showed off his ability to beat man-coverage on Jul 18/12 against the Toronto Argonauts when he caught four passes for 115 yards, and also recorded a career-high and team-best 10 receptions against that same Argo team on Sep 29/12.  He finished the season third on the team in receiving with 55 receptions for 649 yards and scored his lone touchdown of the season on Aug 3/12 against the Montreal Alouettes.  Denmark was once again featured in the running game, carrying the ball seven times for 18 yards and also filled in on the return teams, fielding 11 kickoffs for 140 yards and one missed field goal for 11 yards.

2011

Winnipeg’s nominee for Most Outstanding Rookie, Denmark is a perfect example of how taking advantage of your opportunities can pay off.  After making the team out of training camp, Denmark was put on the reserve list for the first regular season game against Hamilton.  After an injury to Greg Carr forced him out of the lineup, Denmark was inserted into the starting offence for the week two matchup against the Toronto Argonauts on Jul 08/11 and never looked back.  His speed and uncanny ability to catch anything thrown his way made him a go-to receiver in the Blue Bombers’ offence for the remainder of the year.  Denmark scored his first career touchdown on Jul 28/11 against the BC Lions on an 82-yard pass from Buck Pierce and followed that up by registering his first of two 100-yard games on the season against the Edmonton Eskimos the following week on Aug 05/11 when he caught five passes for 101 yards.  He finished the season second on the team in receiving with 65 receptions for 818 yards and five touchdowns and also added 81 rushing yards on seven carries.  Denmark also played in both the East Final and 99th Grey Cup, registering four catches for 30 yards and two carries for 15 yards in the East Division Championship game.

2009

NFL: Denmark spent the past two preseason’s with the Jacksonville Jaguars where he caught four passes for 31 yards in three preseason games.  He spent four weeks at the end of the 2009 season on the Jaguars’ practice roster as well as the first week of the 2010 season.

College

Denmark played two seasons at the University of Arkansas-Monticello after transferring from Troy University and finished his collegiate career with 91 receptions for 1,586 yards and 14 touchdowns while also returning 34 kickoffs for 629 yards.  His career receiving yards total ranks ninth all-time in UAM history.
