Sack-master leads all-star selections
Oct 18, 2012 / 10:57 am
Despite a difficult season on the field, several members of the 3-7 Okanagan Sun were able to post stellar individual performances.
Four players were singled out as BC Football Conference all-stars announced by the league Wednesday.
Leading the way was defensive lineman Steven Doege who was named to his third straight all-star squad.
Doege led the BCFC with 12 sacks on his way to establishing a Canadian Junior Football League career record of 43.5 sacks.
The 12 sacks in 2012 also broke his own club record of 11.5 set two seasons ago.
Doege was a unanimous selection.
A pair of defensive teammates, defensive backs Blake Butler and Robbie Yochim were also named league all-stars.
Butler led the Sun with five interceptions and three knockdowns while Yochim had one interception, a fumble recovery and a blocked punt.
Yochim also returned a punt for a touchdown.
Receiver Tommy Howes was the lone Sun offensive all-star.
Howes caught 34 passes for 539 yards and four touchdowns.
The Langley Rams had the most selections on the all-star squad, placing 11 players on the team while the league champion Vancouver Island Raiders had seven selections.
The Sun continue to prepare under interim head coach Paul Carson for Saturday's BCFC semi-final in Nanaimo.
Carson took over the reigns of the team Monday after first year head coach Gavin Lake was fired Sunday night.
