Lions players earn offensive and defensive honours
B.C. Lions quarterback Travis Lulay, who spearheaded a key victory over the Edmonton Eskimos last Saturday, was named CFL offensive player of the week on Tuesday.
Defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell, Lulay’s Lions teammate, was named the defensive player of the week, while kicker Chris Milo of the Saskatchewan Roughriders was named special-teams player of the week and Cal- gary Stampeders receiver Johnny Forzani was named top Canadian.
Lulay won his second weekly award of the season after passing for 322 yards and three touchdowns in the Lions’ 29-20 win over Edmonton, which left the Lions (10-7) into a three-way tie for first place in the West Division with Edmonton and Calgary.
Mitchell, meanwhile, made four tackles and recorded two sacks against the Eskimos.
