Well deserved!! :thup:
[b]TORONTO – Zach Collaros, Eric Norwood , Weston Dressler and Shea Emry were named the Canadian Football League Players of the Week for Week 13 of the 2014 Canadian Football League season.
The four players were chosen by a panel of judges including: former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde of TSN, and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Zach Collaros was named the Offensive Player of the Week for Week 13. Collaros completed 25 of his 35 attempts for 318 yards and threw for a touchdown, while running in another, as Hamilton stayed undefeated at Tim Hortons Field with a 25-23 win over the Eskimos.
The former Cincinnati Bearcat’s one-yard touchdown plunge early in the final quarter capped a 14-0 run by the home side which erased a 15-3 deficit.
Collaros’ short pass to Brandon Banks loomed large after the receiver ran the ball 44 yards for the touchdown late in the fourth quarter.
In six games this season, the Steubenville, Ohio native has passed for 1,472 yards, completed 69 per cent of his passes and has thrown seven touchdowns.
This is Collaros’ second career Player of the Week honour in his career. His first came in 2013, coincidentally in Week 13.
Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive end Eric Norwood was named the Defensive Player of the Week for Week 13. Norwood had a career-night, establishing new personal bests in tackles (7) and sacks (4) to help the Ticats improve to 3-0 at Tim Hortons Field.
The former South Carolina Gamecock frustrated the Edmonton offensive line the entire game. Norwood’s four sacks – three on Mike Reilly and one on Pat White – sent the Eskimos back a total of 15 yards.
The native of Acworth, Georgia leads the Ticats with seven sacks and has tallied 23 tackles this season.
This is the first Player of the Week honour of Norwood’s career.[/b][url=http://www.cfl.ca/article/a-pair-of-ticats-take-home-player-of-the-week-honours]http://www.cfl.ca/article/a-pair-of-tic ... ek-honours[/url]
