CJFL Players of the Week

They are the best from Week 12

The CJFL is proud to announce the Week 12 Players of the Week following four playoff games and three regular season finales.

Offensive Players of the Week

BC Conference
RB Cam Grzegorczyk – Kamloops Broncos

He saved his best for last.  Running back Cam Grzegorczyk had an incredible game running the football in his regular season finale on Saturday night.  He torched the Prince George defence carrying the rock 34 times for 236 yards and scored three touchdowns. 

Ontario Conference
RB Geoff Clubine – London Beefeaters

Showing that he is equal to his all-star teammate in the backfield, Geoff Clubine gave the Hurricanes defense fits all game long in the Beefeaters’ statement win over Hamilton.  Clubine blasted his way to 216 yards on only 11 carries and had two touchdowns.  His longest carry being an 89-yard rushing touchdown early in the game that opened the flood gates.

Prairie Conference (tie)
RB Boston Davidsen & RB Charles Sawi – Saskatoon Hilltops

In their convincing semi-final win the Hilltops primarily used the ground game and two running backs were featured almost equally.  Boston Davidsen rushed 23 times for 132 yards and had two touchdowns while teammate Charles Sawi added 127 yards on 12 carries and scored a major.

Defensive Players of the Week

BC Conference
LB Demar Hohnstein - Westshore Rebels

He was a dominating force once again for the Rebels defence that has given the opposition a migraine all year.  Demar Hohnstein forces teams to go the other way but still managed a sack, an interception, 2.5 tackles and a knockdown in their shutout of the VI Raiders last weekend. 

Ontario Conference 
LB Matt Smith – London Beefeaters

Turning in his most impressive performance of the season, Matt Smith was making plays all over the field as he totaled nine tackles including two for a loss.  He also had a sack and knocked down a pass for 20 defensive points as he led the Beefeaters defense in stifling the Hamilton offense.

Prairie Conference (tie)
LB Matt Wist – Saskatoon Hilltops

Just like the regular season Matt Wist led the Hilltops defence in their first playoff game.  He tallied five tackles, had six assisted stops and picked off a pass as he and the Hilltops defence shutout the Colts offence. 

LB Tristan Price – Edmonton Huskies
Despite the loss in Regina, the Huskies defence played well led by Tristan Price.  He had six tackles, five of them for a loss, a sack, an interception and a knockdown along with five assisted tackles. 

Special Teams Players of the Week

BC Conference
PK Liam Attwood – Okanagan Sun

The Sun needed a complete game on the weekend which included Special Teams and kicker Liam Attwood did his part.  He booted three field goals and was a perfect 5-5 in converts recording 14 points scored.

Ontario Conference
PK Preston Knight – St. Clair Saints

Playing in the car wash known as Acumen Stadium, Preston Knight proved clutch for the Saints.  In a tight game where neither defense gave up much special teams proved to be the difference and Knight delivered a perfect performance as he connected on all five of his field goal attempts and both converts in the driving wind and rain accounting for 17 of the Saints 29 points.

Prairie Conference
PK Teijon Abel-Douglas – Saskatoon Hilltops

In a Hilltops Player of the Week sweep Abel-Douglas booted three field goals, his longest 46 yards which is the longest in the Conference this season.  He was also a perfect 6-6 in converts and recorded seven kick-offs for 326 yards.
