Calgary selected Gott in the fifth round (35th overall) of the 2008 CFL Canadian Draft. He returned to Boise State for his final year of eligibility before signing with Calgary on May 8, 2009.
Gott played in 17 regular-season games, starting 15 contests at centre. He also started the West semifinal, West final and Grey Cup. He missed one game on Oct. 13 due to a leg injury. Gott was part of a Calgary offensive line that paved the way for Jon Cornish’s league rushing title. The line helped the Stamps offence lead the CFL in rushing touchdowns and total touchdowns while ranking second in points, rushing yards, first downs and pass-completion percentage and third in fewest sacks allowed.
Gott dressed for 17 games during the regular season and made seven starts including three at centre and four at left guard. He also started the West Division semifinal against the Edmonton Eskimos at left guard. Gott helped the Stamps offence finish second in the league with 2,244 rushing yards, an average rushing yards per game of 124.7. Calgary was also second in the league in average gain per rush at 6.2 yards, second in passing yards (5,033) and tied for second in fewest sacks allowed (34). After serving as a backup for the first nine games of the season, Gott made his first CFL start as he lined up at centre against Edmonton on Sept. 9. He made a second start in the Touchdown Atlantic contest against Hamilton the following week. After missing the Oct. 1 contest against Saskatchewan with a leg injury, he returned to action the following week and to the starting lineup on Oct. 14, playing left guard for the remainder of the season.
Gott’s season was limited to three games because of injuries. He dressed for the campaign’s first three games and served as a backup. After hurting his ankle, he was placed on the nine-game injury list in September and missed the remainder of the season.
In his rookie CFL season, Gott served as a backup on the offensive line. He dressed for nine games, including a stretch of eight consecutive contests from Aug. 13 and Oct. 12, and was in uniform for the West final.
After one redshirt season and three seasons serving as a backup at Boise State, Gott stepped in as the starter at right guard in 2008. He helped the Broncos offence lead the Western Athletic Conference with an average of 42.9 points scored per game. Boise State also topped the WAC with 305.1 passing yards per contest and Gott was part of a sturdy offensive line that permitted just six sacks in eight conference games. The Broncos had a 12-1 record for the season.
In high school, Gott was a two-way standout for the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams. In his senior season, he registered 64 tackles and two sacks in 12 games. He was a social science major at Boise State.
