Points on the Flag: Week 12

Points on the Flag: Week 12
Here’s which Canadians stood out on the Labour Day weekend, ahead of the rematches.

11. Hugh O’Neill, P, Edmonton Eskimos (Alberta)
Stats: 6 Punts, 243 Net Yards, 40.5 Yard Average, 5 Kick Offs, 61.6 Yard Average, 1 Special Teams’ Tackle
O’Neill had an outstanding performance punting the football, highlighted by a beautiful bounce out at the one-yard line and a tackle that made kickers everywhere swell with pride.

10. Antoine Pruneau, S, Ottawa Redblacks (Montreal)
Stats: 3 Defensive Tackles, 1 Interception
Pruneau played better than most in the Redblacks defence and read an Antonio Pipkin pass beautiful for his first interception.

9. Rene Paredes, K, Calgary Stampeders (Concordia)
Stats: 5/6 Field Goals Made, 50 Yards Longest, 1 Rouge, 4 Kick Offs, 61.8 Yard Average
Paredes did miss a field goal but no one will remember that thanks to his walk-off winner in the Labour Day Classic.

8. Michael Daly, S, Hamilton Tiger-Cats (McMaster)
Stats: 2 Defensive Tackles, 1 Interception
Daly has been a revelation all-season and his athletic interception was key to a Tiger-Cats victory.

7. Brandon Revenberg, LG, Hamilton Tiger-Cats (Grand Valley State)
Stats: 158 Team Rushing Yards, No Sacks Allowed, 1 Defensive Tackle
Revenberg was impenetrable along the offensive line all night for Hamilton and had a beautiful pull that sprung Alex Green for his first TD.

6. Tevaughn Campbell, CB, Montreal Alouettes (Regina)
Stats: 3 Defensive Tackles, 1 Interception
Campbell was starting fresh off the street and was targeted early and often. He held up impressively with a number of knockdowns, and made up for a very nearly costly DPI by breaking up the next pass and getting the game ending pick.

5. Ryan Bomben, RG, Toronto Argonauts (Guelph)
Stats: No Sacks Allowed, 1 Reception, 3 Yards, 1 Touchdown
Bomben was solid in protection all night but everyone will be talking about his athletic touchdown catch rather than his stellar blocking. When a big man scores, you have to show him some love.

4. Michael Klassen, DT, Ottawa Redblacks (Calgary)
Stats: 4 Defensive Tackles, 2 Sacks
Klassen is the origin point for most of Ottawa’s defensive pressure all season and drove that home with 2 sacks against Montreal.

3. Ryder Stone, RB, Montreal Alouettes (Dartmouth)
Stats: 14 Carries, 81 Yards, 1 Reception, 3 Yards
Coming in to this year’s draft, I felt Ryder Stone was a starting running back in the CFL. He certainly made me look smart in his first opportunity, slicing Ottawa right through the gut.

2. Alex Singleton, MLB, Calgary Stampeders (Montana State)
Stats: 11 Defensive Tackles
Singleton broke double digits in tackles, a rarity this season, and was a big reason that Edmonton’s offence looked lost.

1. Andew Harris, RB, Winnipeg Blue Bombers (Vancouver Island Raiders)
Stats: 15 Carries, 158 Yards, 1 Reception, 15 Yards
It’s a big return to the top 11 for Harris, even if his team was upset. Harris was the Bombers only weapon and no one can question his effort in the loss.
