Lions QB Lulay wins CFL weekly award
Quarterback Travis Lulay, who led the B.C. Lions to a playoff-clinching 23-21 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, was named the CFL's offensive player of the week Monday.
Lulay finished 30-of-41 passing for 424 yards and two TDs to help the Lions cement a CFL playoff spot for the 14th straight year. Lulay also added 34 yards rushing on five carries.
Lions receiver Emmanuel Arceneaux was also considered for the award.
Defensive back Keon Raymond of the Calgary Stampeders was named the top defensive player. Raymond had a team-high seven tackles, a sack and forced fumble in a 35-32 win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
Saskatchewan defensive back Tad Kornegay and Hamilton defensive tackle Jermaine Reid were both finalists.
Bombers kicker Justin Palardy was a unanimous selection as top special-teams player. The rookie hit all six field goals he attempted, including a career long 51-yard boot against Calgary.
Toronto Argonauts rookie receiver Spencer Watt unanimously captured the outstanding Canadian honour. The North Vancouver, B.C., native had six catches for a career-high 140 yards and two TDs in a 30-4 win over the Montreal Alouettes.
