The Hamilton linebacker caught the attention of the selection group for his outstanding effort as the Hurricanes advanced to the OFC championship with a 20-9 semi-final victory over the St Leonard Cougars.

The three-time OFC Defensive Player of the Year earned 21 defensive points with four solo tackles, three assisted tackles, a blocked kick, a pass knock down, and two special teams tackles.

The Hurricanes will be hosts for the OFC final with the Ottawa Sooners visiting Ivor Wynne Stadium on Sunday (Oct. 24) for the 4 p.m. showdown.

That game will feature two more weekly award winners. The Outstanding Offensive Player of the Week is the Sooners’ running back, Ashton Dickson.

He earned his second award of 2010 with an outstanding effort as the Sooners advanced to the championship with a come-from-behind 31-21 victory over the Burlington Braves. He had 25 carries for 206 yards, an 8.24 yard average with his longest run covering 42 yards.

Teammate Andrea Federico captured the Outstanding Special Teams Player of the Week.

The Ottawa kicker also collected his second award this season in the Sooners win over the Braves. He was good on all three converts and three of five field goal attempts. One of the misses went for a single point.

His seven kick offs travelled 332 yards for a 47.4 yard average with his longest being 55 yards.
