Dressler Named Week 16 ST POTW
Saskatchewan Roughrider receiver Weston Dressler has been named the CFL’s Gibson’s Finest Special Teams Player of the Week.
Dressler returned a second quarter punt 66 yards for a touchdown during Saturday’s game versus Montreal. It was the Riders first punt return touchdown since Jason Armstead took one to the end zone versus Edmonton on July 20, 2007. The fifth-year Rider also added four receptions for 28 yards and a touchdown against the Alouettes.
Currently the CFL’s leading receiver with 92 receptions for 1,189 yards and 12 touchdowns, Dressler has also fielded 20 punts for 229 return yards and one score on the season.
This is the third time this season that a Rider has picked up a weekly award after Darian Durant was named CFL Offensive Player of the Week to open the 2012 regular season and Sandro DeAngelis was named CFL Special Teams Player of the Week following week 15.
Other winners were Jamel Richardson (offensive), Jon Cornish (Canadian) and Keon Raymond (defensive)
