A Tiger-Cat has been recognized for his outstanding play in last Sunday’s overtime victory in the Eastern Semi-Final.
Linebacker Simoni Lawrence has been named the CFL’s Defensive Player of the Week.
Lawrence led the Ticats with seven tackles against the Alouettes and was an integral part of a defensive effort that surrendered just 15 first downs and 142 passing yards to Montreal.
In 12 regular season games during his first season with the Ticats, Lawrence recorded 52 defensive tackles, three forced fumbles, three interceptions, six pass knock downs and one quarterback sack.
The Argos host the Tiger-Cats in the Eastern Final, Sunday at 1pm on AM900 CHML.
