Another award for Mac’s Danny Vandervoort.
Two weeks after the highly touted recruit from Bear Creek Secondary in Barrie was named the OUA rookie of the year, Vandervoort was named the CIS Rookie of the Year.
In his first game this season, he caught six balls including a touchdown pass to help the Marauders to an opening week win over Ottawa.
His second game saw him named the OUA Offensive Player of the Week, as he had a sensational day versus Queen’s with seven catches for 172 yards that included a 73-yard touchdown reception.
In week four, he scorched the York Lions for 5 catches for 117 yards and scored three touchdowns.
Vandervoort continued to shine through the OUA conference schedule, and was among league leaders in receiving.
In 8 games he had 31 receptions for 594 yards for an outstanding average of over 19 yards per catch, and scored 8 touchdowns, just one shy of the McMaster single season receiving record of 9, and the most ever by a first-year receiver.
The announcement was made during Vanier Cup week in Quebec City.
