Romareo Reid

Defensive Line-Okanagan Sun

The Okanagan Sun defence arguably turned in its best performance of the season in limiting the Westshore rebels to 96 yards net offence in Saturday’s Cullen Cup.

Among a series of stellar individual performances, Sun defensive lineman Romareo Reid (Notre Dame-Calgary) stood out as he harrassed Rebels QB TE Jessie all afternoon. He finished with 1 tackle, 2 sacks and a highlight forced fumble when he ran down the Rebels passer who was rolling out looking for a receiver downfield.

Kelon Thomas

Defensive Line-Okanagan Sun

Scarborough Thunder (Ontario) Kelon Thomas has caused mismatches all season long as opposing offences try to figure out a way to keep the imposing figure out of their backfield.

No doubt that was top of mind for the Langley Rams offensive coordinator this past weekend but Thomas was having none of that. He was a maniac all afternoon causing offensive breakdowns, finishing with 6 tackles and 2 sacks on the day.

When you watch the Cullen Cup this weekend, pay attention to the Westshore Rebels breaking huddle. No doubt you will notice Rebels quarterback Te Jessie taking notice of where Thomas is lining up.

Kelon Thomas

Defensive Line-Okanagan Sun

Scarborough Thunder (Ontario) Kelon Thomas is arguably the most intimidating defensive player in the BCFC and Saturday night in Prince George he was his usual nasty self as the Sun rolled over Prince George by a 54-7 score, limiting the Kodiaks to 151 yards of offence in the process.

He racked up 3 sacks on the night and forced a fumble that he recovered as well

Chris Rolack

Defensive Back-Valley Huskers

Designated international player Chris Rolack (Garden City Community College-Kansas) and the rest of the Valley Huskers were looking for a statement win this past weekend and got it in a big way with a dominating 28-10 win over the Westshore Rebels Saturday afternoon.

The Huskers limited the Rebels to 251 yards net offence (166 passing) thanks in no small part to the efforts of Rolack who had 9 tackles on the afternoon.

The Huskers and Rebels will meet again the second weekend in October in a BCFC semi-final. The Huskers will be looking for another stellar effort like this from Rolack and company.

Maurice Onyemaenu

Defensive Line-Kamloops Broncos

Designated international player Maurice Onyeahmenu continues to turn heads and has spectators wondering how this is his first year playing football.

He was named defensive player of the week back in week 2 and had another dominating performance as the Broncos prevailed in a hard fought 14-9 road win in Prince George against the Kodiaks.

8 tackles, an assist and 2 quarterback sacks were his numbers on the day. Defence wins football games as they say and it did on this night.

Kemarr Bishop

Secondary-Okanagan Sun

The Valley Huskers likely came into the Apple Bowl Saturday afternoon feeling confident after scoring 62 points the previous week against the VI Raiders.

No doubt the Huskers knew the Sun defence was a different animal and it was in limiting the potent Huskers offence to 236 net yards.

Okanagan Sun defensive back Kemarr Bishop (Rundle College-Calgary) had a big night in the secondary for his club with 2 tackles, an assisted tackle, 1 pass knockdown and 2 interceptions to earn defensive player of the week honours.

Kelon Thomas

Defensive Line-Okanagan Sun

Scarborough Thunder grad Kelon Thomas has been a dominating force on the defensive line for the Okanagan Sun all season. This week he picks up his 2nd defensive player of the week nod following the Sun’s 34-31 win on the road over the Westshore Rebels.

2.5 sacks to go along with 2 tackles and an assisted tackle. A good nights work that kept Rebels quarterback Te Jessie on his heels in this one.

Jaiden Claasen

Linebacker-Valley Huskers

The Valley Huskers travelled to Langley to take on their Fraser Valley rivals in a game that would go a long way to cinching their play-off homes while also putting a nail in the post season aspirations of the Rams.

GW Graham (Chilliwack) grad Jaiden Claasen played a hard nose role in this one, racking up 7 tackles and an assist. Claasen, along with the rest of his team mates made life miserable for the Rams offence as the Huskers came out on top 23-22 to move to 4-2 while dropping the Rams to 2-4

De’Von Young

Defensive Back-Westshore Rebels

Westshore Rebels defensive back De’Von Young (West Kildonan Collegiate-Winnipeg) did pretty much everything defensively for his club in a 49-7 win over the Kamloops Broncos Saturday night.

The Westshore defence limited Kamloops to 265 net yards and Young was a key part in that with 4 tackles, 1 assisted tackle, 2 pass knockdowns and an interception on the day.

Keon Raymond

Defensive Back-Prince George Kodiaks

One of the major player signings for the expansion Prince George Kodiaks was defensive back Keon Raymond (Centennial High School-Calgary) who made the move to the city with his dad, Kodiaks head coach Keon Raymond senior

Junior had a huge night in the secondary as the Kodiaks won the first game in franchise history, 28-20 over a tough Valley Huskers team. He made plays all over the field with 3 tackles, 2 pass knockdowns, an interception that he returned 70 yards for a touchdown. He even managed a quarterback sack.

Keagan Curtis

Defensive Back-Kamloops Broncos

In a night of several solid defensive performances, Kamloops Broncos defensive back Keegan Curtis (Winston Knoll Collegiate-Regina) stood out with 3 tackles and a pair of interceptions in the Broncos massive road win in Nanaimo against the VI Raiders this past weekend.

The Broncos defence has proven to be one of the stingiest in the BCFC this season and the prairie bred Curtis is one of the leaders for the Broncos.

Tarick Polius

Defensive Line-Westshore Rebels

Tarick Polius (West Toronto Prep School) is an absolute monster on the Westshore Rebels defensive line at 6’7 and 300 pounds. That’s big for the CFL, imagine what opposing lineman in the CJFL think when they look up.

He provided little opportunity for the Raiders running backs Saturday night and no doubt had QB Ben Chomolok’s attention as he tallied 4 tackles, 2 assists and 1.5 sacks.

Sun quarterback Dom Britton will no doubt be looking for the location of #97 when the undefeated Westshore Rebels & Okanagan Sun battle Saturday night on Telus channel 1999.

Maurice Onyeahmenu

Kamloops Broncos-Linebacker

The CJFL allows 2 “designated international” players on each roster and while these spots are generally coveted for American players recruited to BCFC rosters, Onyeahmenu is an exception.

Maurice is an international student from Nigeria studying Human Resources at TRU in Kamloops and had never played football before suiting up for the Broncos. The sheer size of Onyeahmenu had him catch the eye of Broncos head coach Braden Vankoughnett who convinced him to trade in the soccer ball for the pigskin last season.

Maurice was a force for his club in a 14-7 season opening loss to the VI Raiders Saturday night but clearly the Broncos defence will be real this year with Onyeahmenu in the front 7. 10 solo tackles on the night...impressive



Kelon Thomas was one of the most dominant defensive lineman in the BCFC in 2022 and picked up right where he left off in his club’s 50-19 rout of the VI Raiders in Nanaimo Saturday night.

The Scarborough Thunder grad made life miserable for the Raiders QB as he was always around the ball with 5 tackles, 1 sack and 1 pass knockdown for the the Sun.

Opposing quarterbacks will be looking for #9 before the ball snaps this season.
