Alexan­der Fox (Montreal West, Que.), a slot­back and kick re­turner for the Bishop’s Gaiters foot­ball team, has been named a Sec­ond Team All-cana­dian by Cana­dian In­teruniver­sity Sport. The CIS of­fice made the an­nounce­ment tonight, as part of the lead up to Fri­day night’s Vanier Cup in Vancouver. This is the first ca­reer All-cana­dian nod for the five-foot-eight, 186-pound sopho­more.

Fox, 22, led the Que­bec con­fer­ence in 2011 with 1,269 all-pur­pose yards. He fin­ished sec­ond in the cir­cuit with 689 re­ceiv­ing yards, and was also sec­ond in touch­downs with six. The former Édouard-mont­petit Lynx had a pair of 100-yard re­ceiv­ing games, and also went over 250 all-pur­pose yards twice this year. He was named the league›s Spe­cial Teams Player of the Week af­ter post­ing 266 allpur­pose yards on Oct. 22 against Mcgill.

This is the sec­ond straight year, the fourth in the past five, that a Gaiter has been named a foot­ball Al­lCana­dian. Fox is the first Gaiter slot back to be named an All-cana­dian since Gilles Colon was named to the First Team in 2003.

The Gaiters con­cluded their 2011 sea­son with a 3-6 record.
