Saskatchewan Roughrider defensive end Ricky Foley has been named a CFL Player of the Week.
The 32-year-old picked up Defensive Player of the Week following an impressive outing in the Riders 35-30 Labour Day Classic victory on Sunday. The Ontario native led the Green and White defence with three defensive tackles, two quarterback sacks and one forced fumble.
Through nine games, Foley has registered 28 defensive tackles, seven quarterback sacks and one forced fumble. It is his third Player of the Week recognition for the 2014 season.
This is the third time Foley has been named Defensive Player of the Week while adding four Canadian Player of the Week honours through his nine year CFL career.
It is the ninth time this season a Rider has earned Player of the Week honours after John Chick (three), Ricky Foley (three), Sam Hurl, Rob Bagg and Jerome Messam have all been recognized.
