In defeat, ’Canes Kotar comes out on top

Not all was lost when the Hamilton Hurricanes chance for a three-peat as Ontario Football Conference champions was thwarted by the London Beefeaters on Saturday.

Hurricanes’ running back Ryan Kotar has been named OFC Offensive Player of the Week. Kotar continued his streak of impressive numbers by finishing off the season and the championship game with 23 carries for 206 yards. Although Ryan was held off the scoreboard, he still amazed the crowd and put his teammates in great field position throughout the night.

For the third-year back, Saturday’s game was his most productive of the year on the ground for the Hurricanes. The Mohawk College student captured his third offensive player of the week honour and finished the OFC season in top spot in rushing with 1,264 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Ryan also added 84 yards receiving on four catches to increase his total yardage from scrimmage to 1,348.
