CFL Players of the Week - Week 9

With more than a few highlights to choose from in week nine action, the selection panel for the Gibson's Players of the week had their work cut out for them this time around.

With the Stampeders showcasing a suddenly red hot offence it's no surprise that Henry Burris was given the nod as the Offensive player of the week, his frequent target on Saturday Johnny Forzani also makes it onto the Gibson honour roles selected as the top Canadian of week nine.

On Defense it was the success and leadership of Joe Lobendahn that put the Bomber at the top of the Defensive players for week nine his second award of 2011, while Sean Whyte gets the nod for Special teams for his efforts with Montreal in their loss in Calgary, it also was the second time that Whyte had been recognized by Gibsons', both of his awards coming in August.

The full review of week nine awards can be found below.
