The best players from Week 13 across the CJFL

The CJFL is proud to announce the Football Canada Players of the Week following Week 13 of the season which includes the Conference finals in BC and the Prairies along with the semi-finals in Ontario.

VOTE HERE for the CJFL Fans Choice Player of the Week. Polls close on Wednesday at 5pm PST.

Offensive Players of the Week

BC Conference
QB Michael Calvert – Langley Rams

In absolute awful conditions Michael Calvert quarterbacked the Langley Rams to another Cullen Cup championship using his football sense instead of his talents. Knowing that throwing the ball in a steady downpour would not be successful Calvert used his legs to kill time and sustain drives.  He carried 13 times for 55 important yards along with completing eight passes for 95 yards.

Ontario Conference
WR Jared Hayes-Williams - St. Clair Fratmen

In spectacular fashion, OFC All-Star receiver, Jared Hayes-Williams put to rest any ideas of a Quinte Skyhawks upset of the Fratmen.  He hauled in five passes for 114 yards and three touchdowns before the Fratmen called off the dogs in what proved to be a tune up for the highly anticipated showdown against the defending champion London Beefeaters next week.

Prairie Conference
RB Carter McLean – Saskatoon Hilltops

The Hilltops used the run game to perfection during the Prairie Conference finale led by Carter McLean.  He would slice and dice the Regina Thunder defence chewing up 204 yards on 25 carries, the longest being 46 yards.

Defensive Players of the Week

BC Conference
DL Kelon Thomas – Okanagan Sun

The Sun defence was solid during the Cullen Cup championship not allowing a touchdown.  Kelon Thomas had a great game making two quarterback sacks, two solo tackles and knocked down three passes at the line scrimmage.

Ontario Conference
DL Mathieu Labelle - London Beefeaters

In a game that saw the teams battling the elements as much as each other the Beefeaters defense proved to be too formidable for the injury riddled visiting Hurricanes.   Leading the defensive charge for the Beefeaters shutout win was defensive lineman, Mathieu Labelle who collected seven solo tackles while also collecting one of the four team sacks on the day.

Prairie Conference
DB Wade Keating –Saskatoon Hilltops

The Hilltops secondary shutdown the high powered throwing attack of the Thunder offence led by Wade Keating.   He showed lockdown coverage, recorded a tackles, had two assisted tackles, knocked down a pass and intercepted one returning it nine yards in the Hilltops’ title win.

Special Teams Players of the Week

BC Conference
PK Tato Ferreyro Araya – Langley Rams

Outside of four conceded safeties the only points in the low scoring Cullen Cup championship game was a 28-yard field off the right foot of Tato Ferreyro Araya in the first quarter.  It proved to be an important kick as the Rams won by three points.

Ontario Conference
R Dante Lewis – St. Clair Fratmen

In case anyone needed a reminder as to why he was voted the Ontario Conference Outstanding Return Specialist in 2021, Dante Lewis wasted no time taking his only kickoff return to the house 87 yards leaving his Skyhawks pursuers grasping at thin air.  The return for a touchdown was his fourth kick or punt return for a touchdown on the season.

Prairie Conference
PK Eric Maximuik – Regina Thunder

The Thunder’s nine points during Sunday’s Prairie Conference final all came from the right foot of All-Star Place Kicker Eric Maximuik in the second quarter.  He connected on three field goals of 43, 39 and 27 yards.  He also recorded five punts, averaging 39.2 yards a boot.

The voting polls are open NOW.  VOTE to make one of these players the CJFL Fans Choice Player of the Week.
