SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 16

SHAW CFL TOP PERFORMERS – WEEK 16

Collaros, Fogg and Unamba named Shaw CFL Top Performers

Tuesday, October 2, 2018 — TORONTO (October 2nd, 2018) – Zach Collaros, Kevin Fogg and Don Unamba were named the Shaw CFL Top Performers of the Week for Week 16 of the CFL’s 2018 season.

The three players were chosen by a panel of judges who independently send their selections to the CFL head office. The panel includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.

QB | ZACH COLLAROS | SASKATCHEWAN ROUGHRIDERS

Quarterback Zach Collaros steered the Saskatchewan Roughriders to their sixth win in seven games on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Montreal Alouettes 34-29.

Collaros collected 394 yards in the contest in addition to scoring a touchdown.

In the first quarter, Collaros executed a six-play touchdown drive, completing four passes in the leadup to a Tre Mason running major.

His touchdown pass came at the close of the first frame as he ran to escape several Montreal players closing in, tossing the ball 23 yards to Kyran Moore in the end zone to give Saskatchewan the lead.

Collaros stitched together several drives to set up running touchdowns and field goals for his teammates, giving the Roughriders a possession time of 35:20.

Collaros has 2,267 yards and nine passing touchdowns on 172 completions in ten games. He’s also recorded 72 rushing yards this season.

DB | KEVIN FOGG | WINNIPEG BLUE BOMBERS

Defensive back Kevin Fogg helped the Blue Bombers to a decisive win over their West division rivals in Edmonton on Saturday evening, strengthening Winnipeg’s playoff position.

Fogg had 25 punt return yards, three defensive tackles, an interception, a forced fumble, a fumble return and a touchdown in Saturday’s action-packed game.

In the first frame, Fogg forced a D’haquille Williams fumble to halt Edmonton’s drive.

His interception came near the top of the third quarter, when he returned a Mike Reilly pass attempt 73 yards for a touchdown to solidify Winnipeg’s lead.

Later in the third, Fogg recovered a fumble forced by a teammate to give Winnipeg possession.

Fogg has 35 defensive tackles, four interceptions, two forced fumbles and one touchdown in twelve games.

DB | DON UNAMBA | HAMILTON TIGER-CATS

Defensive back Don Unamba was part of a strong Ticats squad that triumphed over the BC Lions at home on Saturday.

Unamba had five defensive tackles, including one for a loss, as well as an interception and a touchdown.

The native of Arlington, Texas interrupted the Lions’ very first drive of the game, picking off a Jonathon Jennings pass and returning it 30 yards for his second career touchdown.

That score set the tone for the match as Hamilton turned in a strong performance with Unamba making big hits for the defense.

Unamba has 43 defensive tackles, four sacks, two forced fumbles, one interception and one touchdown in 14 games.
