For a second straight year, Aram Eisho has been crowned the country’s best junior-aged defensive football player of the year.
The Hamilton Hurricanes’ linebacker received the honour at the Canadian Junior Football League’s award banquet on Friday. The 19-year-old was, of course, also named to the All-Canadian Team, along with one of his teammates.
Receiver Travis Steeves was named to the elite team.
Eisho finished the eight-game regular schedule with a rating of 156.5. His next closest defensive challenger scored 111. Eisho registered 44 tackles.
Steeves caught 56 passes for 655 yards, an average of 11.7 per reception. Nine of his catches were for touchdown for the Hurricanes who finished in second pace but were eliminated in the first round of playoffs.
