A pair of Calgary Dinos highlight this week’s Canada West Football Players of the Week, as quarterback Josiah Joseph and linebacker Charlie Moore were acknowledged Monday.
Joseph is the conference’s top offensive player from Week 6 after leading the Dinos to a 34-16 win over the Alberta Golden Bears. Joseph filled in more than admirably for reigning Hec Crighton winner Adam Sinagra, as the Dinos backup pivot went 24-of-30 for 334 yards and a trio of touchdowns. He also added 59 yards on the ground for the first-place Dinos.
On defence, Calgary’s Moore helped stymie the Alberta Golden Bears, as the linebacker led the Dinos with nine tackles, including two for loss.
The third-year Arts student had a sack and forced fumble, as Calgary held Alberta to a season low 16 points.
Rounding out the Week 6 winners is Colby Kyliuk, whose blocked punt and recovery in the end zone for a touchdown has earned the Manitoba Bison the title of special teams player of the week.
Kyliuk opened the scoring for the Herd, making the week’s biggest special teams play late in the first quarter of Manitoba’s 49-21 loss to the Saskatchewan Huskies.
Conference teams are set to enjoy the annual Thanksgiving weekend bye. Canada West action returns Saturday, October 19 with a trio of games, including Regina at Alberta on the Canada West Football Showcase.
