Defensive Players of the Week
DL Garth Knittig – Saskatoon Hilltops
The Hilltops defence was suffocating on Sunday swallowing anything the Huskies tossed their way. Garth Knittig was outstanding make seven solo tackles and assisted on two others as he controlled the trenches.
LB Anthony Blackwell – Langley Rams
The Rams defence was a major factor on Sunday in their championship win. Anthony Blackwell played possibly his best game of the season with eight solo tackles to lead the way. He also forced and recovered a fumble.
DL Zachary Hoffner – Hamilton Hurricanes
With the AKO Fratmen marching deep into Hamilton territory and on the verge up taking a 14 point lead in the second quarter, Hoffner delivered a devastating hit on the Windsor quarterback resulting in a fumble that was scooped up by fellow Hurricane Tim Salau who returned the fumble 73 yards for a touchdown. On the afternoon Hoffner also tallied two solo tackles, assisted on three other tackles, and knocked down two passes. No play was more critical or timely than his forced fumble that sparked the Hurricanes to continue their undefeated season.
