3Down Top 3 Canucks of the Week

Canadians teamed up for the top specials teams play of Week 19 and for their efforts, two nationals share the top spot in our weekly instalment of the best non-import performers.

1. Derek Jones, defensive back, and Michael Miller, fullback, Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Winnipeg’s special teams duo teamed up to produce a touchdown. Jones blocked a Ty Long punt and Miller scooped it up and took it back for a touchdown, just like it was drawn up. Plus Jones had two defensive tackles, one on special teams and a sack while Miller added one special teams tackle.

2. Antoine Pruneau, linebacker, Ottawa Redblacks

The free safety racked up a season-high eight tackles in Ottawa’s dramatic win over Hamilton which kept the Redblacks chances for an East Division regular season title alive. Pruneau produced his best season as a pro.

3. Junior Luke, defensive lineman, B.C. Lions

The 25-year-old defender notched his first career multi-tackle game with two tackles and added a one sack too. A standout showing in B.C.’s upset victory over Winnipeg.
