‘Canes Eisho tackles his fifth OFC honour

It’s becoming habit forming for Aram Eisho. The Hamilton linebacker picked up his fifth Ontario Football Conference’s Outstanding Defensive Player of the Week award as the Hurricanes closed out a 4-4 season with a 42-0 home field victory over the London Beefeaters.

The St. Jean de Brebeuf grad accumulated 32 points with nine solo tackles (three of them on special teams), four assisted tackles, a blocked kick, a forced fumble and two batted balls.

This brings his season total to 182.5 and an acknowledgement by the OFC coaches as the defensive player of the year.

In other Week 10 voting, the Outstanding Offensive Player is Jason Hogan, quarterback for the St. Leonard Cougars. Hogan collects his third OFC offensive award while leading the Cougars to a first place finish with a 32-20 road victory over the Burlington Braves. The veteran QB completed an outstanding 12 of his 18 pass attempts, three for touchdowns.

While amassing 237 yards through the air he also ran the ball five times for another 22 yards.

The Outstanding Special Teams Player of the Week is Hogan’s teammate, kick returner Gayrett Taylor.

Gayrett helped the Cougars run to first place in their 32-20 victory over the home town Burlington Braves. He returned three punts a total of 80 yards including a 55 yard romp for a touchdown. The Cougars freshman also returned two kick offs, each one for 10 yards.

Hamilton and St. Leonard meet Saturday in Montreal as the OFC playoffs start.
