(Vancouver) Pulling down one circus catch after another, BC Lions receiver Bryan Burnham has quickly become one of the CFL’s most dangerous offensive weapons. His performance on Saturday evening was no different as the slotback tallied five catches for 131 yards and a major in the Lions’ 30-15 win over Saskatchewan. The lofty totals earned the human highlight reel a Top Performer nod for Week 7 as announced by the CFL this morning.
Among his more dazzling thefts on the weekend was a 36-yard catch in the first quarter which later set up his 13-yard TD strike from Travis Lulay and an amazing 50-yard snag in triple coverage with the Lions hemmed-up inside their own five yard-line.
Burnham currently sits third among all CFL receivers with 546 yards and two touchdowns on 50 catches. The Lions (5-2) will look to make it back-to-back wins as they travel to Regina this Sunday to take on the Roughriders (2-4). The next BC Lions home game is Friday, August 18 versus the Calgary Stampeders.
