The CJFL is proud to announce the Players of the Week following a weekend that featured the National Semi-Final game and the Prairie Conference title match.
Offensive Players of the Week
RB Jevon Garwood – Okanagan Sun
The Okanagan Sun used their running attack to perfection in Windsor on Saturday led by the shifty, smooth Jevon Garwood. He racked up 157 yards on 19 carries and scored three touchdowns, two coming in the fourth quarter on route to the semi-final win.
RB Ryland Leichert – Regina Thunder
For the second straight week Ryland Leichert touched the football a lot. He helped carry the Thunder into the Canadian Bowl with 33 carries for 190 yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. He also came out of the backfield making a reception for 15 yards.
Defensive Players of the Week
DL Tynan Braymiller – St. Clair Saints
All-Star Tynan Braymiller showed the rest of the CJFL why he is one of the premier defenders in the country. On that national stage he had a game high seven solo tackles, added a quarterback sack and assisted on two other tackles.
LB Matt Wist – Saskatoon Hilltops
Matt Wist was all over the field for the Hilltops making nine solo tackles and assisted on nine others which is tied for the second most in a Prairie Conference playoff game.
DB Adam King – Regina Thunder
Adam King made a massive difference for the Thunder in their secondary. In particular he stopped a Hilltop drive with a momentum shifting interception after jumping a route. He added 2.5 tackles and a knockdown in the Thunder’s win.
Special Teams Players of the Week
K/P Isaac Wegner – Okanagan Sun
When a Sun drive stalled during the national semi-final and they needed to either flip the field or pin the Saints deep, kicker Isaac Wegner was there to answer the call. He booted five punts, netting 149 yards and on two separate occasions pinned the Saints deep in their own end.
KR Charles Sawi – Saskatoon Hilltops
He returned two missed field goals for 100 yards, etching his name in the record books. His two returns set a new Conference playoff record for the most missed field goal returns in a game. His 100 return yards in missed field goals is the second most in Conference playoff history and third most in the CJFL.
