Points on the Flag: Week 14
11. Jean-Christophe Beaulieu, FB, Ottawa Redblacks (Sherbrooke)
Stats: 2 Receptions, 34 Yards, 1 Special Teams’ Tackle
Beaulieu made sneaky good contributions in the passing game and on special teams, but doesn’t get nearly enough credit for his performance as a blocker.
10. Junior Turner, DT, Calgary Stampeders (Bishop’s)
Stats: 2 Defensive Tackles, 1 Sack
Turner has played an underrated role in the Calgary defence all season. He was effective at shutting down Hamilton’s interior runs and put pressure on Masoli on multiple occasions.
9. Dan Clark, C, Saskatchewan Roughriders (Regina Thunder)
Stats: No Sacks Allowed
Clark kept Collaros clean all day against the Redblacks and while the Rider run game struggled, watching Clark get to the second level consistently was absolutely gorgeous.
8. Tevaughn Campbell, CB, Montreal Alouettes (Regina)
Stats: 2 Defensive Tackles, 1 Special Teams’ Tackle, 1 Fumble Recovery, 1 Touchdown
Campbell was solid on defence but put an exclamation point on his game by recovering a blocked field goal and showing his track speed all the way to the endzone.
7. Bo Lokombo, WLB, BC Lions (Oregon)
Stats: 1 Defensive Tackle, 2 Special Teams’ Tackles, 1 Sack, 1 Interception
Lokombo has excelled in the BC Lions new linebacker rotation, playing the role of extra safety and pass rusher. He recorded an interception for the second straight week, added a sack and continued to excel on special teams.
6. Jordan Herdman, WLB, BC Lions (Simon Fraser)
Stats: 4 Defensive Tackles, 1 Sack
Herdman was his usual effective self, racking up tackles and adding a sack while splitting time with Lokombo.
5. Brad Sinopoli, SB, Ottawa Redblacks (Ottawa)
Stats: 5 Receptions, 62 Yards
It wasn’t his best performance of the season, but Sinopoli’s reliable hands were once again integral to an Ottawa victory.
4. Mike Edem, S, Saskatchewan Roughriders (Calgary)
Stats: 7 Defensive Tackles, 2 Special Teams’ Tackles
Edem has stepped up in recent weeks, posting massive tackle numbers as Chris Jones rotates him up into the boxes and continuing to contribute on special teams.
3. Tunde Adeleke, S, Calgary Stampeders (Carleton)
Stats: 4 Defensive Tackles, 2 Fumble Recoveries, 1 Touchdown
Adeleke has returned to dominance as the Stampeders’ safety, making key open field tackles and adding the easiest scoop and score of his career.
2. Jason Lauzon-Seguin, RT, Ottawa Redblacks (Laval)
Stats: No Sacks Allowed, 160 Team Rushing Yards
Lauzon-Seguin had as near a perfect performance as a lineman can have. He completely shut down the ferocious pass rush duo of Hughes and Jefferson and executed textbook pulls and cut off blocks that opened holes for William Powell.
1. Juwan Brescacin, SB, Calgary Stampeders (Northern Illinois)
Stats: 5 Receptions, 109 Yards
Brescacin has proved time and time again this season that he has some of the best hands in the league. His clutch catches downfield were integral to another Stampeders’ victory.
