Sheets Gets POTW Honour

Saskatchewan Roughrider running back Kory Sheets has been named the CFL Gibson’s Finest Offensive Player of the Week.


Sheets received this award following Saturday’s 35-14 victory over the B.C. Lions. The second-year Rider continued his outstanding season rushing 25 times for 148 yards and one touchdown. It was his league leading ninth 100-yard rushing game of the season, tying a franchise record.  


In 14 games this season, the 28-year-old Purdue product leads the CFL with 12 rushing touchdowns and has racked up 1,556 yards on 276 carries.  


This is the third time this year that Sheets has been named offensive player of the week.          

It is the tenth time this season that a Rider has earned player of the week honours after Chris Getzlaf, Tyron Brackenridge, Darian Durant, Rey Williams (twice), Rob Bagg, Kory Sheets (three) and Jock Sanders have all picked up weekly awards.
