Play of the Year Showdown
While we wait for the new season — is it June yet? — let’s relive some of the highlights of the 2017 campaign courtesy of the Play of the Year Showdown, presented by TELUS.
We’re asking you the fans to analyze 16 big plays from last season and to vote for your favourite. The last highlight left standing will be the Play of the Year Showdown winner!
Group C starts off with a sneaky little play. On third and one, Andrew Buckley lined up under center looking for a single yard. Instead, using some great blocks, he ran outside to the right and found himself galloping up the field with a single RedBlack player in pursuit. On the sideline, Buckley avoided the tackle and scampered into the endzone!
The second play of Group C features defensive back Shaq Richardson, who jumped a route and picked off Hamilton quarterback Zach Collaros before taking it to the house. It was his first CFL interception and he made the most of it by turning it into six points!
Next up is receiver DaVaris Daniels. On second and long, quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell escapes the pocket and heaves it deep for Daniels, who leaps and makes the touchdown grab even with a defender in his face. That was his second touchdown of the game!
Our fourth and final play of Group C is a memorable one, as it cemented the Labour Day Rematch win over Edmonton! Receiver Marquay McDaniel found some open space behind the defence and Bo Levi Mitchell just got the throw past the out-stretched arms of the defensive back to convert on the game-winning touchdown.
So which of these four plays are your favourite? Watch the video below and vote for the play you liked the best!
