Jor­dan Heather (Oro­mocto, N.B.) of the Bishop’s Gaiters has been named the Que­bec univer­sity foot­ball Of­fen­sive Player of the Week for the week end­ing Septem­ber 18, 2011. The league of­fice in Montreal made the an­nounce­ment ear­lier to­day. This is the first time in his ca­reer that Heather has won this award, and the first time a Gaiter has been named Of­fen­sive Player of the Week this sea­son.

Heather threw for a ca­reer­high 459 yards as he led the Gaiters to a 36-23 vic­tory over the Mount Al­li­son Moun­ties on Satur­day af­ter­noon. Heather’s to­tal was a reg­u­larsea­son sin­glegame record for the Gaiters, and one yard short of the all-time school record (460, set by Sil­vio Mar­tel in an 1991 OQIFC semi-fi­nal). The third-year his­tory ma­jor, play­ing in his first CIS game in his home prov­ince, com­pleted 26 of 41 passes, in­clud­ing three touch­downs and one in­ter­cep­tion. This was Heather’s sec­ond con­sec­u­tive 300-yard game, in only his third ca­reer reg­u­lar-sea­son start.

Heather is now a fi­nal­ist for the CIS foot­ball Player of the Week award, which will be an­nounced on Wed­nes­day.

The Gaiters’ ( 1-2) next ac­tion is on Satur­day af­ter­noon, as they host the Montreal Cara­bins (2-1) at Coul­ter Field in the an­nual Home­com­ing Game. Kick­off is set for 1 p.m.
