CFL POTW - Week 12

Travis Lulay, Brock Campbell, Tim Brown and Shawn Gore were named the Gibson’s Finest CFL Players of the Week for Week 12, the Canadian Football League announced today.

The four players were chosen by a panel of judges that includes former Canadian Football League players Matt Dunigan and Duane Forde, now of TSN, and Pierre Vercheval of RDS.

Lulay, now a second-year starter for BC, was named the Offensive Player of the Week after completing 24 of 40 passes and throwing for 390 yards and two touchdowns in the Lions’ 28-23 win over the Argos. Last year's Most Outstanding Player also chipped in with 42 yards on two carries, helping the Lions to the best overall record in the CFL.

With his touchdown pass in the first quarter, Lulay moved to second all time in CFL history after throwing at least one touchdown pass in 22 consecutive games. Sam Etcheverry sits atop that list having thrown a touchdown pass in 34 consecutive games.

Ticats defensive back Brock Campbell was named the Defensive Player of the Week, thanks to a seven-tackle effort along with a sack in Hamilton's 51-8 win over the Eskimos.

Campbell was a key contributor in limiting the success of all three Edmonton quarterbacks in the game as he earned his first 2012 Player of the Week award.

Lions kick returner Tim Brown was named the Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts in the Lions' win over the Argos on Saturday.

Brown compiled 77 yards on three kick returns, 52 yards on five punt returns and added 22 yards on one missed field goal for 151 total yards, earning his first special teams honour of 2012.

Slotback Shawn Gore completed the hat-trick for the Lions, after being named the Canadian Player of the Week. The Toronto native compiled 96 yards and a touchdown on three receptions, and also added 17 yards on one carry.
