Two Huskies named CanWest Allstars

Two University of Saskatchewan Huskie football players have been honoured for their seasons by being named Canada West All-Stars last week.

Fourth-year offensive linemen Ben Heenan and third-year defensive end Zach Hart have were each given the nod. It is the second straight year that both Heenan and Hart have been named Canada West All-Stars.

Heenan and his line helped the Huskies to the third-best scoring offence scoring 238 points in eight conference games to average 29.8 per game. The Huskies also had the third-best rushing offence with 1,257 yards on the ground in the season.

Hart tallied 32.5 tackles, three sacks for a loss of 16 yards and one force fumble in 2011.

Winners of the Canada West major awards will be announced at 1:30. Mountain Time on Thursday, November 10.

One Response to “Two Huskies named CanWest Allstars”

  1. Dallas says:

    Not that I care too much about this popularity contest, but each of Regina and Manitoba, two teams that finished below the Huskies in the standings, came away with five all-stars each. How did either of these teams deserve three more spots than the Huskies?

    It’s ridiculous that Teague Sherman and Thomas Hall are on here and Bryce McCall and Tony Michalchuk were left off. FRANKly speaking: What a joke.
