Hamilton Tiger-Cats quarterback Zach Collaros has been named a Shaw CFL Top Performer for Week 9.
The 27-year old completed 23 passes on 30 attempts for 381 yards with a career-high five passing touchdowns in Hamilton’s 53-7 win over the Saskatchewan Roughriders at Tim Hortons Field on August 20.
The game marked just his second start this season after recovering from a torn ACL in his right knee suffered on September 19, 2015. The University of Cincinnati product signed a contract extension with the Tiger-Cats on June 20, 2016 that will keep him in Hamilton through the 2018 season.
Collaros, who finished second in voting, joins Montreal’s Kevin Glenn and Edmonton’s Patrick Watkins, first and third in voting, respectively, as this week’s Shaw CFL Top Performers.
