It really should have occurred to me to do this last week when Ottawa swept, but we can still start now.
DL | Keith Shologan | Ottawa REDBLACKS
Ottawa’s Keith Shologan was named Shaw CFL Top Performer after the Ottawa REDBLACKS’ late home win over the Montreal Alouettes on Friday.
In the game, Shologan recorded five tackles including a career-high three sacks. The trio of sacks accumulated a total loss of 27 yards; it was his third career multi-sack game.
After administering heavy pressure in the first half, the Spruce Grove, Alberta native sent Montreal quickly to a two and out in the third quarter with his second sack of the game against quarterback Rakeem Cato. Shologan recorded his final sack of the contest with 1:25 remaining to stave off an attempt by Montreal to catch the REDBLACKS’ score. With 12 tackles in six games (an average of two tackles per game), Shologan is on pace to eclipse his season high of tackles (31 in 2013).
Both of Shologan’s two other tackles were also tackles for a loss; resulting in four yards lost in total.
Shologan is the second defensive player for the REDBLACKS and the first defensive Canadian player to receive Shaw CFL Top Performer honours. Shologan is the third Canadian to be named a Shaw Top Performer this season – Calgary Stampeder, Jon Cornish and BC Lions, Andrew Harris were the first two.
To tell you the truth, I didn't think he got all three. I thought one was Whiteside's or at least shared with him, but maybe Shologan made initial contact and I didn't see it.
Nonetheless, he really showed up in this one. :thup:
